Hello all,

I am in the process of building another host to handle our mailing lists, 
because the current machine is way to slow when precessing membership 
functions.  wwwwaaayyy  ttttoooo   ssslllloooowwwww - if you know what I 

Firstly, should I create the new mailing list and import existing members 
into the mailing list on the new host, or can I get away with copying the 
list directory?   The old machine is FreeBSD and the new host is under RH 
This is using Mailman 1.1 .

Secondly, will there be magnitudes of speed improvement when going to 
Mailman 2, in terms of membership functions (add/delete/user 
unsubscribe/etc)?  It takes a good 20 secs to show the Membership 
Management interface, but 3 secs to lists members, in a list with 52487 

Thanks for yout time,  Stuart.
