Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 7:35 AM (in response to pieceolease)I don't see that as strange behavior. When I click "reply to all" I expect I am included... as I am a part of "all".
This is even true when I use my Outlook at work. Regardless where my email is on the original (CC or TO), if I hit REPLY TO ALL, I get a message.
A work-around: Setup a rule that auto-deletes any emails sent TO you FROM you. Then at least you wont have to do it yourself.Dual 1.8GHz G5 | iMac 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 20 | iMac G4 17 |, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 5G iPod 80GB | (2) AirPort Extreme | (2) AEX
Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 8:19 AM (in response to pieceolease)Do you have more than one email address? If so it could be that the sender is sending to both your addresses, and so when you reply to "All" from one it automatically sends to the other...MacBook 2.4 White, iMac Intel 2.16 20", PowerMac G4 MDD, Macintosh Plus, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

I am struggling to see how a sender can be classed as a recipient.

I have a solution to this. It is not as simple or as obvious as taking yourself off the CC to list. I've posted this elsewhere but thought best to put it up here as it's an issue seen with gmail accounts and a lot of Mac and iPhone users...
The answer to this is...
Make sure your email address that is registered in Mac's Mail program under Preferences, Accounts, is exactly the same as the account's version of the address.
Here's my example:
firstname.lastname@example.org was the name used in Mac's Mail program and on my iPhone. This works fine and is acceptable because @gmail.com is a replacement for @googlemail.com
The account when I set it up was @googlemail.com.
You must ALSO change the outgoing mail server information to smtp.googlemail.com to make this function. It still works with gmail on the incoming mail server but changing that to googlemail is recommended.
This is due to the mail programs not recognising the alias automatically and therefore not pruning the address when required. This is an issue that Apple needs to solve if it can be done without breaking other rules that are obviously there for a reason.
If you don't use googlemail and your mail account doesn't have the replacement option like gmail, you'll still have to find a solution.

This was very helpful - I suddenly started having this problem when I got a new machine (Lion), did migration assistant from a Snow Leopard machine, and had to set up my mail accounts.
When I implemented the solution as stated by relativitydrive, I stopped getting myself copied when I did reply all. However, there was a predictable bad side effect: my email now seems to others like it comes from my gmail account, rather than the account I was formerly using in Preferences (which is also setup in Gmail imap settings to be the "reply from" email address).
Here's the strange thing: when I switched the account email address listed in Mail Preferences back from the gmail address to the original address (the very address I started off with in Mail Preferences), the problem did not occur again - when I hit reply-all, Mail does not copy me!
Why this happened I don't know, but perhaps this will be useful to somewhere out there in googleland.

Ahh i figured it out...
goto outlook 2011 preferences
then goto accounts
and make sure your email address matches what people are emailing you.
i recently changed it to a different alias email that still comes to the same email address but everyone still emails me to my old alias.

i also had good luck with this problem today. go to Mac Mail Preferences. Open Accounts. Ensure that the Email Address field is exactly the same as the User Name field. Wallah!

I have same problem as originally described by pieceolease; however in this case it is in Outlook 2011. So, "fixes" described here that relate to Mac Mail do not work.
It only started occurring after company moved our mail system to a new Exchange Server; think it was also happening on Windows version of Outlook, but I moved off that to Mac version (Outlook 2011) a while back so cannot test that right now.
Any thoughts ?
