For some of my mail lists I'm subscribed twice, under two different
email addresses.

I send contributions from one email address but never get any ml
traffic sent to that address.

I receive copies of all ml messages to a different address, but never
reply to the list (or make new posts) from that address.

I think I first started doing that with Yahoo lists, when one joined 
Yahoo with a  "Yahoo id", which had nothing to do with an email 
address.  And one could associate several (four?) email addresses
with the Yahoo id.   Then, per mail list, it was possible (and maybe 
still is) to say which address (of the four) one wanted a particular
list's traffic to be sent to.   Contributions to any/all lists could come
from any of the addresses that matched one's Yahoo id.

Jeremy Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
