To do it manually, use the <delete-pattern> key, D, and specify ~l as
the pattern. This will mark all messages addressed to known lists for
deletion. If this is something you *always* do, then you could specify a
folder-hook in your .muttrc. Supposing your folder is =spam you'd want:
folder-hook =spam 'push <delete-pattern>~l<enter>'
This would execute every time you change into the =spam folder.
