Since changing my email to a gmail account, I no longer get a copy of
my own posted message like I used to. The setting to the option I
show below is set to "yes", but I still don't get a copy (I used to
get my own copies with a yahoo account I had used).
So, I see my replies in context with gmail, but that could be because it is saving it as it is being sent and not as it is being received. I also have a somewhat convoluted mail setup - my from address is not gmail, and the MX for my domain isn't gmail, but my mailserver redirects a copy of all mail it receives for me back to gmail.
It almost sounds to me like Gmail is discarding duplicate message IDs - I do this on my mailserver using a procmail recipe so that if somebody CCs 5 of my email addresses on a message I only get it once. If they discard duplicates and consider the sent copy a duplicate then they wouldn't keep the echos from the listserv.
That's just a theory - I've only been using gmail for a few days. Since gmail treats email like a database it wouldn't surprise me if they filter duplicate message IDs.
