Re: [Evolution] Reply for list messages should go back to the list

Even if they are subscribed (and looking in that folder) there may also

For example, it took 22 minutes for this message to come back via the
list -- this isn't just a hypothetical issue:

For some conversations (and at some times of day) a half-hour delay in
receiving a message doesn't matter as much -- but in many cases it
*does* matter, and the conversation can have moved on a *lot* in that
time. Dropping a participant from Cc is *bad*.

If they *have* the message, they always have the option of deleting or
ignoring it. If they *don't* have the message, they're screwed.
