To quickly tell if emails are sent only to you or a mailing list :

  • Login to Gmail
  • In the top right of your screen click Settings
  • Near the middle of your settings page click Personal Level Indicators -> Show Indicators

Emails with a ">" in your display were sent to lists, and emails with ">>" were sent only to you.
