How to stop the ML sending my mails back to me?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Felipe Contreras, May 11, 2007.

  1. I don't want to receive the messages I send, it screws my Gmail display.

    I have searched everywhere for a way to do that with no luck. I even
    tried to send a message to ruby-talk-ctl with the #msg command, but I
    got no reply.

    Any hints?

    Yeah, that's what I thought.

    I have seen that mailman has that option, so I can configure it. But
    not with this ML manager.

    I like the ping back option, in fact I wanted to enable it in my
    mailman subscriptions, but not after I saw how Gmail handles it.

    I see two emails, one appears as a reply of the one before, and all
    the text is compressed in a kind of ugly way.

    Unfortunately my Gmail requests for features seem to always go to the trash.

    Hopefully someone can implement this option in the ruby-talk ML manager.
