This is untried as I only use squirrelmail when I am behind draconian 
firewalls
that dont allow imap or ssh and usually use procmailfor filtering, 
however in the
options menu, select filters then new, then choose to match a header 
that contains
*List-Id:* User questions <freebsd-questions.freebsd.org>
and move it to where you want it moved to. Like i say untested but
I cant see why it wont work.
