yes.. but this would be a config your MTA.

when you are answering emails with reply-all
then you'll get a Cc to your own addresse
simply because neomutt does NOT know
that this email belongs to you.

so you should tell neomutt about it with this:

    alternates my.other at email.address

now for the test:
add this to your config and use
reply-all on such an email again.
do you still see yourself in Cc?

mind you, you can also set multiple addresses
with "alternates" and with patterns, too, eg:

    alternates (sven|guckes)@guckes.net *@guckes.net

if you still see yourself there
then explicitly set this, too:

    unset metoo

however, this should be the default.

does this solve your problem?
any feedback appreciated.
bith here on the list as well as on
our #neomutt channel on Freenode.
