I do too. But the list echo never comes back TO THAT ADDRESS@SERVER.  So 
you must maintain the sub to the other address or on a 2nd server.  Most 
just turn off delivery back to the server they post thru.  Mailfilters 
duplicate nuking doesn't prevent the duplicates in the two server or 2 
addresses situation, each with the same message coming back in, which 
may, or more likely is not the case during that invocation.  I've has as 
much as a 16 hour difference in incoming duplicates doing that.  The 
best solution was to stop using gmail.  And its like an Excedrin 
headache in that you've just removed the need for the headache powders.

So I miss it like I'd miss a broken leg, or a poke in the eye with a 
sharp stick. :)

For you maybe, but gmail has always been a broken solution in search of a 
problem to me.  So it was just a shrug when they started denying my 
fetchmail access to port 995 a year ago.  Problem solved by 6 # 
characters in the .fetchmailrc file.
