OK, EMike rang a bell :-) The list won't duplicate messages. The settings
assumed you already received the message with your BCC. Try it without the
BCC on your next message and you should see your messages shortly afterward.
There is a Mailman setting for NODUP for all subscribers.

The timing of the message actually appearing for you also depends on local
settings. I use MS-Office Outlook for my primary e-mail. My Outlook settings
are to check for new mail every 300 seconds (5 minutes). So a message
actually arriving would be sometime in that 5 minute window depending on the
time in the receive window when I sent the message.

I use Gmail on my Android tablet and it usually receives messages sooner
mostly because it is not likely waiting for the 5 minute receive window as
in my Outlook settings.
