I'm evaluating Mailman as a replacement for Majordomo, which we currently use
for over 370 lists totalling over 12,000 subscribers. It looks good so far!
A few questions:
1: I notice that the footers of the Web pages relating to the test list I set
up say "Test list run by realusername at my.list.host". Since the list setup
creates aliases of listname-owner and listname-admin, I'd think it would be
better to say "Test list run by Test-admin at my.list.host". That conceals the
list-admin's real address and raises awareness among users that they should use
the alias to contact a human responsible for the list, which is useful if the
list-admin role is assumed by someone else. Can this change be made?
2: Are there conversion tools to easily import a Majordomo list into Mailman,
together with any existing archives it may have?
3: Only a few of our lists currently have archives; with Mailman, I can see
that archives may be more popular. Is there a way of limiting how much space
the archives take up, perhaps by automatically removing those over a certain
