Hi Kirk,

The first copy is because I'm replying to your post, and the second is
from the Tutor list itself broadcasting that reply to all the people
subscribed on Tutor.

This is the behavior that most people expect, because it works great with
email programs like Eudora or Outlook (or procmail on Unix systems).  
With these programs, people usually set things up so that
"tutor@python.org" mail goes into a Tutor mailbox separate from their

Ideally, when someone responds to your message, the first copy will go
into your Inbox, while the second filters into your Tutor mailbox.

Hope that makes sense.  Good luck!
