Not that it particularly matters, my server-side filters already filter

Evolution folder.  Neither of which are ideal.

Well, if your preference is to only receive *one* copy (which I accept
is a valid choice even if it's not *my* choice), then surely you have to
choose one or the other?

Sure, *I* agree that neither is ideal, but isn't that what you *wanted*?

No, not at all.  What I *WANT* is to only receive mailing list message
from the mailing list.  But that's not going to happen because people
will always do "Reply to All" for whatever reason and there's no way
that I can select to stop non-list replies [1].  So I have to go for
non-ideal compromises because of the actions of other people. 

Right, this is totally of topic for this list.  I am not going to
participate any further in this discussion.


[1] actually, perhaps I should put in an MTA rule that rejects mail
containing evolution-list in the headers, but doesn't contain the list
