[Mailman-Users] HELP!

I had originally sent an e-mail to Christopher Kolar <ckolar at aurora.edu> as 
he had written the user help info, but aside from indicating that he had 
done it (so it must be possible) and that it would require some change in 
setting, he hasn't responded any further.  Of course, since he's no longer 
with mailman, I think he did very well to respond to me at all.  I then 
tried contacting help at python.org, and they suggested I go back to the 
mailman site and start again.

Can you help me out with something? CHIS has a listserv. I am familiar with 
entering new names, correcting them, and un-subscribing them, but here's 
the problem. I would like to make a couple of sections of the listserv a 
global sub-list. In other words, using a familiar group, I'd like to have 
faculty under one mail address that broadcasts to all. I.e., I'd like to be 
able to pick "Faculty" and be able to limit the group for edits, 
corrections, updates, etc. (in other words, a group cut-n-paste).

I don't know what this is technically called, but I've heard it referred to 
as a global group list and an umbrella subset (the entire listserv is the 
umbrella, and within the umbrella are several sub-sets). I'd appreciate any 
insight you might be able to give me!


Response from our IT:

Sorry Emy, but I haven't heard of anything like that being applicable to 
the Listserv software that we are using. We are currently using "Mailman" 
by www.python.org
