You could even use dovecot with sieve-filters (that's what I do) ;)

It certainly does, although for lists I read regularly anyways, a CC to
me directly annoys me a bit (one more mail to delete manually)...

A pity the Mail-Followup-To: header isn't a standard and therefore only
supported by a few MUAs. It solves this problem very nicely, announcing
to responders where they should direct their followups to.

AFAIK, at least thunderbird, (neo)mutt and gnus support it, probably a
few others as well.
