	I have apache 1.3.6 (new download) and Mailman 1.0b11.  When I
config the list to replace the From field in mail to be the list, it doesn't
do it.  The From field is still the individual sender.  I'm talking about
individually mailed messages to each member on my test list.  I'm glad it
works for you.  I'm using an SGI, IRIX 6.2.  There may be something very
funky about the SGI supplied sendmail.  It won't even give a version number.
Anyone else run into problems on SGI?

	[Nicholson James D]  I assure you that those commands don't solve
the problem.
	Anything else that you've done custom, for instance, by loading
certan modules which aren't
	loaded by the default configuration?
