Gotcha, and sorry for incorrectly thinking this was wrong. I've never
seen that before -- if I got an email from X, with Y and Z also on the
email, it's always gone out to X, Y, and Z with reply-all, but then
again, sending to Y doesn't mean that X is also getting it as in the
case of you (X) and the mailing list (Y). Now I understand.

Got it. And now that you say that, *that's* what puzzled me when
sending it out: I got an email back to myself. So *that* I still do
find weird. If I send an email in response to your email on the list,
why would I want it sent directly to myself? Is that just because if
someone then responds to *that* email, it ensures that I get a direct
email as well as the one to the list?

I've not played with these followup headers, so interesting to get a
bit of education about them. Thanks for explaining.
