[Mailman-Users] Silently discarding non-member posts

The only big piece you seem to be missing is that each install has a
separate owner.  When you run the ./configure command you will include a
switch pointing the "owner" of this particular install, and also to the
home directory for the install.  

The owner for site1 will be something like user mmsite1.  The owner for
site2 will be something like mmsite2, etc... Each of these is a user
with a separate home directory.  Each user has its own cron table as
well. Everything else is just as you described below!

Good Luck, and remember to start out small (get two virtual sites
working), and then grow from there.
