    If you don't want them in your inbox, perhaps you can set up a filter in
    Gmail to automatically send your own messages to trash.
    Many mailing lists have an "echo" setting to choose whether or not you
    receive your own messages. I prefer to see mine. Then I can reply if I
    notice something wrong or not explained clearly in the original.

    My Thunderbird email program has the same feature and I now have the
    same problem as Marcel. When the threading feature works right, a thread
    can be expanded with one click to show all the messages, or collapsed to
    a single line. This is excellent if one wishes to keep a large thread in
    the inbox until the discussion is over.
    Actually, Thunderbird relies primarily on the In-Reply-To header to sort
    messages into threads. If In-Reply-To is missing, it sorts by Subject.
    This is not as good, since any trivial difference, such as "Re:" twice,
    starts a new thread.
    Two years ago we had In-Reply-To headers in NavList messages:
    Unfortunately, they disappeared quite a while ago. I haven't complained
    since the messages still show up. They're just not as well organized as
    those from other discussion groups.
    (Incidentally, the second of my two messages above mentions the Reply-To
    header. I should have said In-Reply-To. There really is a Reply-To
    header, but its function is to supply the address when you reply to an
    I filter out messages with attachments or HTML.
