This assumes that you do not sort mail out into mailboxes by list, as
this rule does:
* ^(X-list: |Sender: owner-|X-BeenThere: |Delivered-To: mailing list |X-(Mailing-)?List: <|X-Loop: )\/[-A-Za-z0-9_+]+
If we combined the two rules (yours and mine), then personal
replies would ONLY ever appear in your high-priority direct-to-me
mailbox, and the list mailbox will have a glaring hole wherever a post
is a reply to one of yours, since the direct-to-you copy will have a
much shorter path to your system.
Thus, your rule is stupid and broken. GTFOML.
This bullshit really ought to be a goddamn FAQ. I keep having
to argue against this msgid.cache bullshit on mailing lists full of
folks who haven't learned mutt's list-reply yet.
Q: Should I include quotations after my reply?
