Is This Normal?


#1

When I reply to ruby-talk I get an extra copy of my reply.
Is this normal?

Thanks,

Define “extra copy”. How many emails of yourself do you get? One or
two?
One is completly natural since the email sent to the list gets send to
each and everyone who’s subscribed. (otherwise you would lose track of
your own discussions)

If you get two emails, its probably an issue of your MUA (or how you
use it), sending the mail to the list and to you, as well.

You’re not really getting two copies of your reply, it’s an artifact
of how gmail works. It’s showing you both the message you sent and
the copy that the mailing list sent out.

You may be able to tell ruby-talk not to send you your own messages,
or you can probably set up a filter to get rid of the copy the list
sends you.

Okay, forget my prior message then, didn’t thought of gmail.

If you’re using gmail, yes.

Hello Matz,

I am a member of Mysql, Ubuntu and other mailing lists. None of them
show
this behavior.
When I send an email I don’t get any emails echoed back. When I send
replies
I get just one copy of myself.

In ruby-talk everything sent by me has an extra copy. I think something
is
broken. Possibly at the ruby-talk end since I am OK with other mailing
lists.

By the way, thanks for a great language!
-Alex

someone pointed already you can set in gmail some filter to now show
message from your mail that was send to ruby-talk etc.

Which would render them rather bad lists. Seriously, I want to see
what I wrote without using some weird gmail features :slight_smile:

Or you could hit news:comp.lang.ruby , and apply Post-Here-Read-Here.
