I am getting two copies of all messages to the Fedora list. This is

   I did some simple looking at the Thunderbird mail client and I
have discovered how to do exactly what is being done to me. And it is
dirt simple and all you need is the email address of the victom and
the email address of the list. I have both for most people on this
list. In theory I can do the same for all of you.

Sure, it's easy.  Sure YOU can do it.  But I think you're missing the
issue here.  Anyone with brains can pull this off, but /is anyone
really doing this/?  I know you've been looking at the problem, but
try looking at the big picture.  Is anyone really doing this?  Or are
you blowing this completely out of proportion?

Unless I see honest proof (logs, etc would be very informative) that
this is truly the case, I think this thread needs to simply go away.

Please, feel free to do this to me if you wish.  I can (and probably
SHOULD after this) filter every single email you post to this list.
We don't mind helping you, but there are rules in this list.
Unwritten and  unspoken, sure, but they are still rules.  A lot of
people here are becoming quite unhappy with the fact that you don't
seem to be learning those rules very well, or at all, depending on who
you talk to.

This is a community, and not everyone gets along with everyone else.
People rub each other the wrong way.  It's the nature of things.  But
when protocol is followed, a good portion of that can be ameliorated.

Repeated threats like this isn't going to make you any friends and
even more, make it very unlikely that you'll get any help at all.

I truly doubt someone on this list has the time (or the immaturity) to
setup something like you describe.  But maybe I'm wrong.  Without
evidence of this, I'm not buying.

* Besides, here in the US yesterday was Martin Luther King day, and in
the words of a another King (uh, Rodney), "can't we all just get along?"



   It is obvious that we can not get along and it is not my fault. I
discovered yesterday I was getting 2 copies of every message sent to
this list. It is not nice. When I got it figured out it is someone on
this list who is doing it to ME, I decided to find out, how hard is this
to do? In short order I discovered you can cause this to happen if your
using Thunderbird.

   As for get along I am in favor of that. I only react when I have
been fouled. And many of the so-called experts here get great pleasure
from hurting me.

Gmail filters can also be configured to forward emails to another address.
There is a "Forward to" field in there. A wrongly configured filter could be
a problem.

No not a error. If you look at the header in the proper spot it is:
