I have noticed that gmail is funky when it comes to discussion lists.
>From what I have observed, gmail puts your message in your sent
folder, but it doesn't show your message that's been delivered by the
list itself. I find this very annoying because like you, I assumed my
messages weren't going through, but after checking the archives I
found that they were.

However, if you reply to a discussion list thread in gmail, it
includes that reply in the conversation thread. Again, though, it's
not the actual mail sent by the list because you don't see the list
headers and footers.
