    I've been experience some trouble lately with Mail. It's more of an annoyance.

    Let's say I'm on an email with 4 people. I'm CC'ed on the email. When I hit Reply All, it puts my email address in the CC tab again. Which means, when I do reply to all, I'll get an email from myself with the reply I just sent to the others.

    I'm confident it shouldn't be this way

    Is this a bug? Any way to turn it off?

    Outlook on Windows works exactly the same way. "Reply All" truly means All.

    Under Preferences>Composing, is "automatically cc myself" checked?

    I just clicked reply all to a group email and I wasn't included in the address field, and I can't recall a time when I ever was.

    No, it doesn't on my end. If I hit "Reply All" on a message where I am CC'd, I am not a recipient.

    Also, Outlook pro-tip which comes in handy for me: If you want to reply to an item you sent so the conversation remains intact, a normal "Reply" will get you an email back to yourself. A "Reply All" will create a reply to recipient only. I love how Gmail works this way by default.

    This isn't standard behavior, it only began for me after upgrading OS X. Anyone have any luck preventing this?

    You're right. If you Reply All, you should not also be a recipient. What's the point of making you a recipient of a message you just typed up? You know what I mean? This is definitely a bug.

    I still haven't found a way to prevent it, it is very annoying to have to manually remove myself from the recipient box. I've tried this on both Gmail (personal) and Outlook Web App (work) and when I hit Reply All, it does NOT list me under recipient.
