Ahh...that would definitely explain it....and I guess as long as it
shows my address as the from address it does that, even if it actually
came from the list server.

Also, the filter I have now to set my mythtv-users label is based on
having [mythtv-users] in the subject, as things appear coming from the
list.  I guess I have to add another for anything sent to the list as
well.  That'll at least add my posts to my label if not the inbox.

Thanks!

Tom
