Yes, depending on the receiving system I can get one copy or two, but on
Mail.app I can explicitly make a second copy when needed (to have one copy
in the mail mailbox that's for "stuff addressed to me diretly and
personally", and one in the other, "stuff from this mailing list" mbox) and
in gmail I don't need it anyway (since each message can have as many labels
as I want, it can be "in" as many ``mailboxes'' as I want;-).

I have always tried to trim out individual responses for this reason and

the "to: aleax" would ensure it gets in my "look at these ASAP" main mailbox
(unless preempted by other rules blocking it from there), and the Cc: (just
like the To:) for the mlist would ensure it gets in the "baypiggies"
mailbox.  If it only goes in the latter, NP, I may not just get around to it
quite as promptly;-).
