It doesn't have to be *you*.  127.0.0.1 is how all machines refer to
themselves (like you looking in the mirror, and calling yourself "me" or
"I").  Your mail can go through various machines along its way, or
different processes on the same machine, and they'll each add their own
headers.  Any of them could refer to themselves with their local
loopback address rather than another network address.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
