I don't know, I had a hard time following your scenario. Here's one
of my own, to make sure we're on the same wavelength:
I post to xemacs-beta with Gnus and Cc my wife.
Michelle isn't subscribed to xemacs-beta.
Because I have my Gnus configured to recognise that xemacs-beta is
a mailing list two magical things happen:
1) Mail-Copies-To: never is set
2) Mail-Followups-To: xemacs-beta(a)xemacs.org,
michelle(a)her.email.com is set
You come along and want to reply to the list, Michelle, and to
me. All you do is hit 'F' in the summary buffer and low and
behold you are editing a draft with:
Cc: michelle(a)her.email.com (that Cc might be in the To field
but that doesn't matter)
I get to read it because I'm subscribed to the mailing list.
Michelle gets to read it because of the MFT header. Everyone's
You decide to reply to just Michelle and I and _not_ the mailing
list. All you do is hit 'R'.
All you need to remember is:
- Use 'R' to reply
- Use 'F' to followup
- You "reply" to private mail, and "followup" to list mail
I think the most appropriate part of the manual would be:
(Info-goto-node "(gnus)Group Parameters")
And amongst lots of other things, you might want:
| (setq message-subscribed-address-functions
Has that been helpful? Don't hesitate to ask if you need any further

Only to you, because I know how much it annoys you. :-P
