A trick with gmail could be to subscribe two addresses, and use the 2nd
to post for the 1st (needs registering). I haven't tried.

Or use gmail via IMAP in Thunderbird.

No, that does not help with this particular issue.

To clarify: gmail intentionally deletes mails that it thinks are
duplicates. Thus, for instance, you never receive a copy from mail you
send yourself to a mail list. Or, if you get both a direct reply and an
onlist copy, you never get the onlist copy.

This "feature" of gmail breaks somewhat mail list experience.

One could subscribe with address 'one', and nomail with address 'two'.
Then intentionally reply and post with address 'two'. This way you get
all onlist replies on 'one' and direct on 'two'.
