  Would you consider adding to your wish list:
	1.) send a  kind of "vacation message" to non-list members
	2.) the ability to reply to both the sender and the list
  The need we have is this: I help maintain a list of 8 volunteers. 
Readers send various questions to our list, and when we answer the mails 
we reply to the reader (who is not a list subscriber) and to the list -- 
so other list members know the question has been answered (and how it 
was answered). Sometimes though no one on the list answers a mail sent 
to us. So it'd be nice that every time a reader sent in a request, they 
got a mail back saying we received your mail and if you don't hear back 
from us in a week, write us again (with a little explanation of how 
group responsibility can allow some things to slip between the 
cracks! :) The second wish is more minor -- sometimes list members 
forget to send their reply to the list so it only makes it to the reader 
(who is our default reply-to).

  Thanks for your consideration, and for building a fantastic product! :)
