I see the mistake, mueller6726 should have been mueller6725 .
Moral of the story is that email to the list should not be CC'ed to the list subscriber.
Sending CC to the list subscriber is not normal list practice; it is an idiosyncrasy of FreeBSD and NetBSD lists (not sure about OpenBSD and DragonFlyBSD).
I don't send CC to any list member who is clearly a regular on the list; that would just be redundant.
