mailbox which gets seen
more often.  List mailboxes may not get seen for weeks
and sometimes large numbers of messages are skipped over when
I get back to them.  It depends on how much extra time I have.
When busy, such a system enables me to prioritize communications.

Which (reply to sender) is STILL the list default, I believe. (After all
these years).

But making a habit of that that will get you several nastygrams from people
insisting they
want only the list copy, and you have to remember each person's preference.

I add a filter to my MUA on the body of message, if it mentions my name, then
it flags the message.

I have a filter on Thunderbird to Watch a thread where I participated.
It is quite difficult to miss a response sooner or later.
