   When I've replied to a thread I've initiated I see both the individual and
the list in the To: field. I always remove the individual's address and post
to the list because none of us needs two copies of messages.

   This behavior may be more due to my use of pine than to the way the MLM is
configured, but I've not noticed a problem.
