I keep reading about maintaining a list and if I'm right that's fine, but
I'm assuming that this list if generated from another location contains the
name of the person sending it wouldn't it be best to have that e-mail
dropped after all the sender should know the content of the mail he or she
is sending. Usually if there is an address in it that's not right it'll fire
back a message to the sender notifying them that that mail did not go
through.  I guess what I'm looking for is if in the header that the domain
of the sender is the same as the receiver then the mail should go through
with the TO and FROM being the same. But if the sender domain is different
and the TO and FROM has the same name and domain then it should be dropped.

I hope this makes sense.

The standard is to use yourself as the to recipient.

Not sure what you mean by properly set up mail server.

For years, I have maintained lists of various groups of people in my address

When I want to send an e-mail to one or more of the groups and sometimes
individuals at the same time, I just BCC each entry. Never had a single
problem with undefined addresses.
