No, they will probably only get one email, because the list software removes 
the duplicates. And they will only get the "private" email which is without 
the real list-headers. And thus the filters will not work!

And if they do their part by changing the "remove duplicates"-setting, they 
will get the mail two times, one filtered to the correct place and one 
poluting the inbox...
