If the user has no dups set in the user's options, you can put a Cc: to
the user in the email To: the list and then instead of posting from
your MUA which will send the Cc:, post the message directly with
sendmail or equivalent, sending the envelope to the list only. I think
that's the best you can do.

Are you trying to hide the fact that you reposted the message to the
list (the user could see it in the archives or a subsequent reply to
the list if there are archives or replies or some other list member
may just tell the user, so hiding may not be effective)?

If you're only trying to save the user the trouble of seeing the
message again, I think on the other hand, it is a courtesy to the user
to receive the post which indicates it has been reposted.
