OT: Gmail and reading this list

While this is not an FC4 issue, I wonder if anyone else has this issue, and 
has found the solution. When I use my Gmail subscription, messages I send to 
the list are not sent back to me. I remember finding a page on Gmail 
explaining that this was a 'feature' - for me, it's a pain. I forward my mail 
through Gmail, and actually receive it at my other account. If I don't get 
back my own posts, it disrupts thread reading. I can use Kmail settings to 
preserve my sent messages in the relevant folder, but, that only keeps my 
post on the machine I sent it from. I read my mail on multiple machines. Is 
there a setting somewhere to change this behavior? I can no longer find the 
page on Gmail that describes this behavior, but as near as I can remember, it 
said it would detect my own posts being returned from mail-lists and filter 
them out to reduce traffic or mailbox congestion, or something to that 
effect. It makes using Gmail for lists like this a real pain...
