Yes. The way you do it is to subscribe to the list the normal way with=20
the secondary address, then just set that address to nomail.<name of your list>
At the botton of the screen type your email address into "Unsubscribe or =

Edit options".
You will be presented with a login screen. If you forgot your password,=20
press the "Reminder" button.
Then select "Disable Email delivery" and submit. You will now have an=20
address you can use to post to the list, but without receiving duplicate =
