Some additional info:

When sending to <listname>-request@, I get this message:
"TypeError: not enough arguments; expected 1, got 0"

When sending to <listname>-admin@, I get this:
"AttributeError: recips"

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Sorry for the delay - was losing money in vegas on a vacation...

I haven't done anything that involved, but my quick glance at the code
says you should use a HeadlessDocument instead of a document, then you
can modify the listinfo script to drop in your own head, body, and
closing tags...if your server does ssi, I don't see a reason you couldn't
drop the include directives in there.

wow, we are really stretching my python and mailman knowledge here...so
hope this helps!  (btw, I'm basing all this off 1.1...may be different
in 2...)
