We're using Google Apps for our domain's e-mail via IMAP. Whenever mail is sent to a mailing list, copies of the original mail are not received in inboxes. According to Google, this is a "feature."

Is there a way to disable this "feature" so that all mail sent to mailing lists appears in inboxes just like all other e-mail?

Perhaps something along the lines of this method for disabling Google's spam filter??

I would be interested in this as well, the behaviour is disconcerting from my perspective. – dezwart Apr 9 '10 at 3:28
I wasted a lot of time troubleshooting my mailing list because I wasn't seeing any messages at the Gmail account I was testing from before I figured this out. Extremely annoying "feature" My messages weren't going into spam, but I know they were being delivered and accepted by Google mail servers. Look forward to an answer. – dunxd Apr 9 '10 at 21:52

You CAN do this. Made my life much easier after I figured this out.

You need to create a filter looking for all email sent from you, to a list of all groups and separated by pipes (the OR symbol) and then "Never send it to Spam"

This causes email you send to a group to appear in your inbox.

from:( to:(||| Do this: Never send it to Spam
