[Mailman-Users] max length for email address

I used add_members to load a text file containing a list of email 
addresses.  Who knows what happened!  It looks like most of those over 30 
characters got truncated.  I very well could have just screwed up somewhere...

I'm just going to pump the ones that I think bounced back in and rely on 
the program to catch the duplicates...

While I'm posting... Is there some way to automatically discard posts that 
need to be approved by the admin?  No one will ever be able to post to this 
list who isn't approved...
