This what you want to you email filtering for. Create a (sub)folder
named "r-help", setup an email filter that sends all message that has
a subject starting with "[R] " to that folder. That way they will not
clutter up your inbox, but you can still browser the r-help messages.
You haven't told us your email client, but pretty much any client I
know of supports this. I use gmail as my client and there it is very
simple. This way reading message is no different from reading them
via a news reader.

FYI, I very very rarely get false positives (from the r-help lists)
and hardly any spam for that sake (thanks!) and I've been on the list
for a long time. I couldn't find a single one during the last 30 days
in my gmail spam box.
It is impossible to tell why some of your message are falsely
classified as spam without know what your email client is. Some
clients have there own build in spam filtering that you can train by
pressing "This is spam/This is not spam", whereas others rely on their
email provider to analyze all messages and add a spam score in the
email header and then you can set up the client to filter those out
without much local analysis. The latter is common at universities.
As already been suggested, it is more likely that this something that
you email provider/sys adm should be able to help you out with. To me
it sounds unlikely that there is something "wrong" with the R messages
or that R mail server is at fault.
Hope this helps
