Try creating a virtual folder for all messages that have "linux" (or just "n") in the List-Id field. It will always be empty. Virtual folders by subject are possible, but they are highly unreliable. A private reply to your mailing list post will end up in the list folder if the subject is preserved.
If sorting messages by recipient, private replies will go to the list folders as long as the list address is among the recipients. You won't get your private copy in the Unmatched folder. If you try to work it around by making a virtual folder for all messages that don't have the "List-Id" field, you'll find that there is no way to do it.
Don't get me wrong, Evolution has plenty of limitations of its own, but at least I can configure it to produce something acceptable for day-to-day work.
