I'm setting up a Google Group for use as an open-source mailing-list. In Mailman, as a user I can choose to receive copies of all messages by email (even ones that I send and ones that are cc:ed to me). Can I do the same as a Google Groups user? Being set to "Send me an email for every new message" doesn't seem to be enough.

Ditto for messages I approve as a moderator: the first one I approved, I did not receive by email, even it appeared in the group and I have received other e-mails from this group.

Could you explain your use case a little more? Why do you want to receive copies of your own messages? – Vidar S. Ramdal Mar 1 '13 at 9:58
For miscellaneous reasons that didn't fit in this margin so I blogged them: idupree.dreamwidth.org/3454.html – idupree Mar 1 '13 at 12:33
