       If this is a poll, I like this feature in g-mail - and others;
           for those who wish to see all, use the 'all mail' rather than
the 'inbox'  ;-)

       If this is a poll, I still detest this list's reply feature ...
having to doctor the e-addresses is time-consuming & frustrating; and
causes errors.

       The Pole went to the poll only to find a pole; so he set out to
polish his Polish furniture ...  ;-)

 Hi :)

I think there is some default setting when you apply to these lists that
sets it so you can't see your own posts except through Nabble or GMane.
So, it's not just GMail that is blocking him.

who's the list-manager again?

 Personally i think it's a huge benefit.  I see my own posts in people's
replies and notice all the horrible typos and embarrassments that i didn't
notice while typing.  So, i am quite glad of it.

diff'rent strokes. I'd rather see my own posts than my own face and torso.

 This crazy need for "Reply to" or whatever is a different story.  It's
made it much more difficult to get through the posts and i make a lot more
typing mistakes now too.

it's impossible! I have to type in the correct mailing list address for
every reply.

Tom :)

apologies to Brian: I didn't see his post (it wasn't delivered for some

I wish I could wean myself of gmail.

I notice one cannot see one's own posts; is it possible to switch this

Your problem is not with the LibreOffice list, but with your mail
provider Gmail - which has a bug^H^H^H feature which suppresses copies
distributed to you of your own messages to the list.

Google says:

When you send mail to any group or mailing list you subscribe to, Gmail
automatically skips your inbox and archives the message to save you time
and prevent clutter. The message will appear in your inbox if someone
responds to it or if there is an error delivering the message. If you'd
like to view your message, you can find it in Sent Mail or All Mail.

It can be argued that this practice is unhelpful.

I trust this helps.
