Thank you. I just started learning python, so I wanted to find out if I am on the right track
first. I have spent 2 hours on these few lines of code, but have not got it to work yet. I tried
to run the listinfo.py file alone to debug and got the following message (either running the
original file that came with the package or what I have modified):
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/var/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/listinfo.py", line 25, in ?
from Mailman import mm_cfg
ImportError: No module named Mailman
What did I miss?

This is a great idea, I will test it out as well.

Tha goal is to avoid clutter and subscription attempts. I think modify the admin.py file as you
suggested might be a better option. Maybe require authentication to access the admin page.
Thanks a lot.
