	With GMail, you will see your message in the Sent folder, but what 
GMail seems to do is recognize that the message coming back from 
Ubuntu-Users is from you and is already in your mailstore (Sent); so 
then it doesn't give you what it considers a duplicate.

	From what I've read, GMail's email system eliminates any duplicate 
messages (de-duplication of sorts). Bascially, what it really does is 
put all of your mail into one folder "All Mail"; then simply "tags" each 
message with the name of the folder it should appear in. So, when you 
'copy' a message to another folder, in reality you are simply only 
adding a tag to it...
