It reached the list.

Two options are involved in your receiving your own post from the list.

The "Receive your own posts to the list?" option (aka not metoo on the
membership list) controls whether you ever receive copies of your
posts from the list. "Avoid duplicate copies of messages?" (aka
nodupes) controls whether you receive copies of posts to the list in
which you are also and addressee. I.e. if nodupes is set and you Cc:
yourself in the post, you won't receive it from the list. Could this
be the reason?
