They are showing up in gmail's Inbox but they are not downloading -
everything else is - no filters in place !

Because the client considers them already downloaded.

What Are you accessing Gmail with (what client)
Are you Pop (if so, why on earth would you) or imap
Are you simply filtering to inbox, or a sub-folder (which google calls
a label)

The "OT" list emails are not coming through either !

When you write an email in Thunderbird (for example), a copy of that is
placed on the "Sent" folder, which can be local or remote.

If it is local, you will see another copy on the Gmail server, which
typically can be downloaded from the Inbox.

Or it can be stored remotely on the Gmail "Sent" folder (seen from
imap). You can use filters to place it somewhere else - but the post
remains the same, a "local" copy of sent email.

Gmail then tries to send that email to opensuse.

If opensuse accepts it, it will send a copy to all subscribers. Gmail
will get yours and immediately delete it.

On the other hand, if opensuse does not accept that email, or is down,
it will of course not be sent to anybody.

In any case, you will never know if your post was accepted or not, till
you get replies (if there are any).

You can of course, see the Sent email copy, sorted inside the opensuse
mail list folder. It helps you, seeing the post at the start of the thread.

On the other hand, people using a standard ISP mail, will see both
emails, the Sent copy, and the email sent by the list server. They are
very similar, but not totally the same, like the unsubscribe lines, and
the "received" headers.
