Gee i feel like i have a new sirname "pobox.com" ;)

| In the Apache srm.conf file, I needed to have the following:
| <Directory /home/mailman/archives/public>
| Options FollowSymLinks
| order allow,deny
| allow from all
| </Directory>

the extra little "order allow,deny...allow from all" is necessary if
their are auth restrictions in a higher level directory preventing
access access to the public.

Maybe this should go in the docs somewhere.

do you mean the list admin password, or creating a separate listwide
password that will work for everybody for everything except admin
