I agree; this is not simple. I also prefer a reply to the list, but most
people don't.

People often use 'Reply to all', so the message goes to the ML *and* to
the sender. But in this  case, I only receive the message without header
(the private copy), so it is not filtered and automatically put it my
PyQt folder.

I think that the robot is configured to only send one copy in such case,
which is a good thing, but is there a way to configure it so I receive
the message to the list, and not the private one?

PyQT is not the only list in this case; I think this is a mailman issue...
