Hope it works for you. I did all this for the same reason - be sure that my 
messages are making to the lists.

  Hi Negoslav,

    (glad that I got your name spelled correctly(! Smile! 

    I will try too what you say. 

    Never worried too much re not getting messages in to my inbox with gMail 
but on reflection it is good to know that messages  have arrived on a list. 

    There can sometimes of course be a lag between sendinng messages 
occasionally to lists and so on so that is good your fix! 

    Thanks too,

    I see you are using OE. Here some instructions:
    1. Make sure you're in the main OE window. 
    2. Press alt t, followed by the letter a to bring up the accounts dialogue 
    3. Select the GMail account, then press alt p. The selected account's 
properties dialogue box will appear. 
    4. Control tab to the servers page. 
    5. Tab to the account name edit field, press home to move to the beginning, 
and type "recent:", without quotes or a space after the colon. 
    6. Press enter on the apply button. 
    7. Tab to the OK button and press enter. 

    This is right from gmail help site. It's the original idea standing behind 
all this "recent" thing.

    What is 'recent mode?'

    If you're accessing Gmail on multiple clients through POP, Gmail's 'recent 
mode' makes sure that all messages are made available to each client, rather
    than only to the first client to access new mail.

    Recent mode fetches the last 30 days of mail, regardless of whether it's 
been sent to another POP client already.

    Setting up 'recent mode'

    In your POP client settings, replace 'username@xxxxxxxxx' in the 'Username' 
or 'Email' field with 'recent:username@xxxxxxxxx'

    Once you enable recent mode, please be sure to configure your POP client to 
leave messages on the server according to the instructions below:

    list of 3 items
    . Outlook or Outlook Express: on the Advanced tab, check the box next to 
'Leave a copy of messages on the server.'
    . Apple Mail: on the Advanced tab, remove the check next to 'Remove copy 
from server after retrieving a message.'
    . Thunderbird: on the Server Settings tab, check the box next to 'Leave 
messages on server.'
    list end
