	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" 
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...

I wouldn't say you're adding a tag to it. From what i gathered gmail 
uses ONE mailbox 'All Mail' and attaches labels  for the others. e.g. I 
filter all mail from 'Inbox' to 'All Mail'. I leave the 'Sent' box as 
it is. Gmail takes some getting used to... i think for mailing lists i 
prefer other providers (like aol which is what i'm using now). Gmail is 
a bit awkward if one wants multiple accounts which is the other reason 
why i changed.
[sorry if i misunderstood your meaning of 'tag']
