Hi Reinis,

I've looked into this a number of times and never found a proper solution.
For me, and most people it works fine and they get copies of their
messages. I actually think it is a gmail problem rather than a mailman
issue. We have almost 1000 people subscribed with gmail accounts and
Google's spam filter tends to way overzealous. If I set mailman to deliver
to each account individually for each message packet then it appears to
work fine but it then takes almost 90 minutes to send a complete message
(and google gets upset after about 25 messages and tells the server to
come back in 10 minutes :-( ) to all subscribers and things very rapidly
spiral out of control as new messages come in.

The problem is two fold. Firstly gmail can greylist things so message
delivery for gmail accounts can often be substantially delayed and second
gmail is I believe hiding your own copy of the message from you since it
is trying to be too smart for it's own good and detecting the same message
already in your sent items.

Simple solution is to use a non-gmail account which would actually be
better for everyone on the list. People should not be using 'anonymous'
accounts to post to what is a scientific discussion list. I am tempted to
enforce a rule that everyone posting either has an account where we can
identify who they are OR signs their email with a signature identifying
their full name, institution and affiliation.

A more complex solution would be to check your gmail settings and see if
there is a way to prevent this sort of thing happening but I don't know of
a solution. If you find one please let me know and I can add it to the
list subscription instructions.

All the best
