    I have an existing mailman install of v2.06, it's under heavy daily use,
so downtime isn't really an option. What is the suimplest way to upgrade to
v2.08 with the least amount of time down?   I really want to get past the
bug with the malformed bounce emails, becuase that seems to effect me almost

   Thanks in advance,

            Richard Idalski

  Obtain the software from:

  I recommend that you download v 2.0.8 as this is the current stable
  I also recommend that you install it on a Linux box.  If you use a
standard distribution like Mandrake, you will find that it comes with an
earlier version of Mailman.  Previous versions of Mailman had a bug that
would cause them to stop delivering if they received a malformed bounce
email, so you will want the 2.0.8 version.

  4000 email addresses is not a problem for Mailman - if you run it on a
fairly decent machine with adequate internet access.

  Once you have installed Mailman, and followed all the install directions,
then you will create a list and subscribe your email addresses to that list.
