Gmail does something similar, except not time-limited; it won't even re-send you a copy of a mail you send to a mailing list. This is apparently

Not always true. I get both, every time, and the sent message sometimes I get
twice :)

Hmm. Maybe they changed something after all; the last time I looked at this was
at least two years ago, but at the time they seemed to consider the behavior a
feature rather than a bug, despite the number of people requesting the ability
to disable it. Given their track record with such things (or at least my
impression thereof), I didn't expect them to have changed that.

If they *have* introduced the ability to configure this, I'd like to know how...
another thing to look into, I suppose.

Every time you let somebody set a limit they start moving it.
