And when you look at one of the (now two) posts from you in that
thread, do you see the mailman-users list footer that you see if you
look at Terri's post? These would be there if the message you are
seeing came from the list, but I suspect they are not and the messages
you see are actually those in your Sent folder.

This is not important for many purposes, but it does mean that you
can't actually tell if you received a copy of your post from the list.
