[Mailman-Users] Cookies and IE5

Subsequent to my previous message (below), I've had to do a little fiddling.
What I'm wondering is if anyone else is successfully able to administer
Mailman using Microsoft IE5?  Went in and tested my installation with Lynx
(ugh!) and it shows the cookie warning, accept the cookie and all is well to
admin the page (and "details" works too).  Went back to IE5, doesn't work at
all... went into the IE5 config and switched from "automatically accept
cookies" to "warn before accepting" and somehow when I try to admin mailman
it doesn't even pop up a cookie warning.  Cookies seem to be working ok for
numerous other sites I visited, just not the mailman stuff.  Is it possible
that Mailman is sending cookies that are somehow incompatible with IE5 (not
that microsoft would ever do anything non-standard :-) ?  Just my machine...
thought of that, tried my other 2 windows machines with same result.

Any comments, thoughts, suggestions are appreciated.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Mailman RC2 under Redhat Linux

I know this has probably been repeated dozens of times on this list, but are
there any specific bugs or workarounds that I should be aware of in
installing Mailman 1.0rc2 under Redhat Linux 6.0; or any patches or bugfixes
post-rc2 that I should be applying so I don't go needlessly pulling out
what's left of my hair over problems that have already been addressed by

There are 2 things that I have noticed, which in my mind do not seem
right...  created a new list and went to the administrative page, which
makes me re-enter my password each and every time I go to a different page.
Also, whenever I click on any of the "details" links a 2nd window pops up,
in which I am again asked for my password and then presented with another
copy of the same page I've been on, rather than a helpfile or information
file as I would expect.

Thanks in advance,
