Thus said Bob Carragher on Fri, 24 Apr 2015 04:32:38 -0700:

I'm not actually replying directly to Robert's message.
Rather, I'm noting that I never received the copy from the
mailing list; only the one sent directly to me, and after a
33-hour delay between Oz and GMail:

Gmail will not allow you to receive both the message from the
mailing list *AND* the mailing list sent directly to you.
Because you received the email sent directly to you, Gmail
either discarded, or is hiding, the other email.

I hadn't noticed that before with NMH ML postings (though, very
few of them are directly addressed to me as well as the ML).
Most likely because there hadn't been such a huge delay in
delivery previously.

(Andy's email reached the GMail servers without any real delay.)

Is it really GMail that's doing this?  Or is it the list server,
seeing that one of the list's email addresses is in the header,
deciding not to send a (duplicate) copy to it?  I can't imagine
Google deciding that it's a good idea to look for "duplicates"
and discarding or hiding them (in a way that I cannot see).

(I did see others' replies to it, that were sent to the
mailing list, and was waiting to see if I'd ever get a copy.)

Didn't you say you received a copy that was sent directly to
you?  Perhaps I've missed something... is the concern that you
received 0 copies of the message in question, or that you
received just 1 copy (the one sent directly to you)?

Sorry, I was unclear.

I'm okay with only receiving the copy routed directly to me
(rather than via the ML).  My concern is that my copy took 33
hours to reach me.  (One consequence of that delay was that I
saw others' replies to the copy that was sent via the ML.  In
other words, I saw replies to a mailing list posting that, until
yesterday, I'd never seen.)
