How do you go about getting .txt files in your /home/mailman/data dir ?
All I see are binary pck files (which one could run dumpdb on, but
was curious to know).  I'm running mailman-2.1.2.  BTW, does deleting
those .pck files have any baring on anything else (is it dangerous) ?
Meaning, are there any adverse affects in doing that (is there a db
that cares or anything) ?

BTW: for those mailman users looking to incorporate spamassassin, do look
     into this site - it would be wonderful if mailman proper included these
     hooks natively in its future releases (or at a min include the info
     on the URL below on list.org or the FAQ).


     One thing this setup is lacking is "learning" - ie. the ability for
     spamassassin to play nicer with mailman (ie. to know what things you
     discarded to build-up a more profound history affecting future action).
