I'm wondering if you are seeing the 'nodupes' behavior of mailman,
brought up by Keith Moore on the IETF discussion list in August. See:
> I noticed that when I receive replies to the posts made on this list,
> they come directly from whoever replied, but I seem to not receive
> typical extra copy from the email from mail list itself. Is this true
> of how this list is configured?
> If this is so does mail list determine it based on my address being
> present in "To" and "CC" header fields? If so does that not seem like
> some small breaking of mail system because mail list is here making
> determination on if I already received a copy of the post based on
> RFC2822 header data - where as actual addressing is done with RFC2821
> RCPT TO parameters of the sender, which mail list does not know and so
> can not 100% guarantee that I really did the receive the email post.
> This system slightly bothers me and I'm not sure it is appropriate
> configuration to keep, especially if this were to become IETF WG list.
> Reason is that we're here from all different places with various email
> accept policies for other places and this opens up possibility that

> (blacklisting based on what country for example) somebody else on this
> list - where as we all do make certain that we can receive email
> directly from the mail list.
> So even if it does mean duplication of messages in my mailbox (which
> I already know how to deal with if it becomes a problem for some list)
> it would still be better then decisions of the list to not send email
> if to be recipient is already in CC or TO.
