    I don't know about others, but my filters place messages in different folders,
    EXCEPT when my name is on the cc or to list.
    In that case, the message is left in my inbox for more immediate review and
    possible response.

    The Unicode lists are also slow to send mail so there can be a significant
    delay (an hour or more at times). Having the name on the mail can speed
    responses, although its perhaps unjust to people not named on the to-list.

    There probably isn't a one-size fits all solution, short of those not wanting
    a response changing their reply-to address to "".
