Well, I'm using sendmail 8.9.3.  I have many lists running through it with 
mj 1.94.4 with no problems other than its slow.  The problem I am having 
here is that the approval page times out and the mail is never being sent. 
is the cgi script sending the actual mail or just approving so another 
program can send it?

its just seems weird that the cgi would send the mail itself.

i am going to get postfix running this weekend to see if it helps.  let me 
know if you have other suggestions.
