Sorry for Repeat

I believe this is happening because somehow the address that is used to
subscribe to the list is subscribed as a list member.  Therefore each 
post will also be sent to the subscribe address until that address is 

One possible rationale for doing this would be to ensure that all 
incoming posts are posted to the list, even if the person posting is not
yet subscribed.  I recall that previously (before this started 
happening) my posts were being rejected if I submitted them with the 
wrong  return address.  After this started happening, all my posts have 
been successful.  I just delete the "Subscribe Failed" message.  But I 
also get duplicate messages from the list because two of my e-mail 
addresses are each subscribed.

I decided that I don't mind receiving two copies of each post in case I 
accidentally delete one.  It gives me a backup copy of each post to b-greek.
