Now for the next question.  What is the status of Mailman 2.1 like? 
 Is it stable enough to use in a production environment?  I am 
unsure as I have not been following this branch recently.

Thanks.  I will look into using it then.  Any suggestion of which 
would be better?  I have used mhonarc before and it works well but 
not sure about Hypermail or their interaction with Mailman.  Which 
set of documentation would I be able to find how to do this in?
Thanks for the help.
