Speaking of virtual hosts...


When the automated, monthly reminder goes out, the text uses a host name
that might not apply to all the mailing lists in the combined

I got a number of emails on January 1 when people received their mailing
list reminder for harleydavidson.com (I run a mailing list for that
domain). People couldn't quite see how the Python2C Announcement list
should be hosted on harleydavidson.com :-)

The combined report is cool and all :-), but I would recommend that it
only combines reports for lists on the same virtual host!
