Or check out the vast power that is Mailman, our mighty list software.
If you go to the address in every mail signature:

and edit your options, you will find this one here: 

  Avoid duplicate copies of messages?
  When you are listed explicitly in the To: or Cc: headers of a list
  message, you can opt to not receive another copy from the mailing
  list. Select Yes to avoid receiving copies from the mailing list;
  select No to receive copies.
  If the list has member personalized messages enabled, and you elect
  to receive copies, every copy will have a X-Mailman-Copy: yes header
  added to it. 

This should be self-explanatory. There is other cool stuff you can set
there. Mo, messing with the Reply-To is not one of them.
