Thanks for the report, no it doesn't, are you replying to a mailing list or to a normal users? Please try it with another new user configured in your system, there's probably something broken there.

I am replying to a normal email distribution with several users listed.
I replied to this email with "reply all". As you can see it added my
email address to the CC field.

I think I figured out what's be going on though. Exchange gives you two
email addresses. One uses your full name and one uses an abbreviated
form (chamilto in my case). I have my email address entered in the
exchange preferences using the abbreviated form. The CC field on
reply-all contains the long form. If I change the exchange preference to
the long form it clears up the problem.

the issue is a configuration one and not a bug, the email is not added to the Cc if that's the sender one

This bug has affected me for years through at least two different versions of Evolution. I am currently on version 3.4.4 (the previous version was whatever came with Ubuntu 10.04). I can supply step-by-step screenshots if required. This is what happens:

1. I receive an email addressed to me (and possibly other people as well -- makes no difference)
2. I hit 'Reply to all'
3. My own email address appears in the 'To' field of the new email

Extremely annoying bug and looks unprofessional to those who see that I've CC'd myself.

More info:

Evolution checks against the email address of the account and doesn't include this. However, I have two addresses being sent to one account. Is it possible to take this scenario into consideration? May not be a bug, but very annoying.
