I use mu4e. When I reply-all to an email, my own email appears in CC. I have these lines in my configuration:

(setq mu4e-compose-dont-reply-to-self t)
 message-send-mail-function   'smtpmail-send-it
 user-mail-address "email@domain.com"

I don't have multiple accounts as in this Github issue. The value of the variable mu4e-user-mail-address-list is my username@hostname.domain.tld, where username is my login name and hostname.domain.tld is the hostname of the computer.

When I click Customize this variable, I see that it was changed, but not by me:

INS DEL Address: username@hostname.domain.tld
 State : CHANGED outside Customize.

How can I avoid my email when replying to all?


It seems that mu4e does not pick up your email address from the sendmail settings. The variable mu4e-user-mail-address-list was changed outside of your initialisation file and you can override it with:

(setq mu4e-user-mail-address-list (quote ("email@domain.com")))

Evaluate the region or reload the file, and now mu4e no longer includes your email in reply-all. And when you reply to an email sent from one person to you, it does not ask you whether to reply all or just to the sender.
