[Mailman-Users] What did I do wrong?

Thank you for your help!  And I'm currently running mm2.0.7 and looking 
forward to 2.1

Modifying my mm_cfg.py fixed the problem.  Oddly, I had tried this before 
with poor luck, must have just keyed something wrong the first 
time.  Oddly, I could not locate the install log, possibly because I didn't 
"build" mailman but uncompressed a tarball.

Second (different) question.  My list has lots of attachments, which the 
archive stores, but in an odd format.  How can I teach people how to pull 
the attachment out of the archive?  Is there pre-written instructions on 
this somewhere?

Third question - because of the number of attachments, combined with large 
messages, is there a limit on the size of the digest?  I have only one 
digest user, and he said he had a digest that would not open.  I plan to do 
some testing with this, but thought I'd ask.
