Basically, no.
We use Gmail at work and it's a huge f'ing problem for me as well.

Subject: [vcf-midatlantic] Aaarrrrggghhhhh - list behavior 

A few weeks ago we changed the hosting of VCFed.org email from our web 
hoster to Google. Problem is, now I don't get copies of my own messages 
to groups (even to non-Google-based groups such as this one). How do I 
fix that?

Search indicates this may be * intended * behavior on Google's part, 
because they would rather you do everything via Gmail in a browser and 
use conversation views. I don't work that way and I don't want to work 
that way. I am using Thunderbird on my desktop and the default Android 
mail client on my phone. This is pissing me off because when viewing 
list messages I like to see all the context in one place. I can probably 
make a filter in Thunderbird to copy all my sent messages to list 
addresses into the relevant inboxes, but I shouldn't have to do that! Is 
there a way around this?
