The above statement seems to contradict the following one (from earlier
in this thread).

This latter statement seems to be the accurate one, but I'm at a loss as
to why I should be receiving my own posts when I have the nodupes bit
set.  The only logical deduction that I can come up with is that it is
because I am the list owner.

Apart from the usual headers, there are 3 differences:

1. He has a few X- headers, such as X-US-Mail, X-Telephone, X-FAX and
   X-URL.  I have only X-PGP-Key.  In any case, these shouldn't affect.

2. I have User-Agent, Mime-Version, Content-Type, and
   Content-Transfer-Encoding.  Again, these shouldn't matter.

3. He includes a Cc: header with no value in every post.  This seems
   like it *could* be interfering, but why would it?

No, topics have not been configured, but if they were standing in the
way, the message would be killed before being to delivered to *anyone,*
wouldn't it?

I see no differences outright.

Thanks again.
