Actually, after some fiddling, I see that the bit that affects delivery
back to the poster is the "not metoo" bit.  You can confirm this by
using the administrative Web interface (Membership Management) and
toggling the "Receive your own posts to the list?" bit in your personal
configuration page.

I am inclined to agree with you (except that as stated above, I think
that the bit in question is "not metoo").

This particular use is posting with a blank space after Cc:.

I'm running 2.1.5, BTW.  FWIW, htdig 3.2.0b6 is installed but not
configured nor running.  Same goes for AMaViS 2.2.0, ClamAV 0.75, and
SpamAssassin 2.64, none of which are being piped any messages, AFAICT.
All on FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p2.
