A different way around that prickly mulberry tree that gmail is, is to 
subscribe using 2 different names, then post exclusively to one  name, 
and accept for reading, the other name.  The problem is its a cast iron 
bitch to remember to do the posting only via the first name subbed.  The 
echo coming back from a mailing list is seen as a duplicate by gmail and 
is deleted.

Kmail 1.9 can do that theoretically if you set the sending account with a 
sticky bit, but that gets blown away entirely too easily.
So trust but verify before you hit send, or clean house until you only 
have one send profile.

I had a long talk with the google folks about that several years ago and 
found it was not even open for discussion. Some time later they decided 
my tls was not up to their specs, and I have now been using my isp's 
mail server since. I can't say as I miss gmail a bit.  Life at 84 is 
sweet.
