     Correct.  In fact, none of the suggestions I made are absolutely
necessary.  However, I am finding it increasingly difficult to help each
and every user properly configure whatever plethora of mail clients they
use.  It would be a great deal simpler for me if the MailMan could help by
second-guessing what the user meant occasionally, especailly in the case
of common mistakes. (ex, subscribing with one address but posting from
another).  Surely someone else has run into this issue before...
