[Mailman-Users] Puzzled; Selective no-archive patch.

There is a header you can add to the mail that tells the archives to
skip the message.  It would be simpler for you to write a small handler
that inserts that header into an email that has been marked via the
web-admin as No Archive.

Good luck - Jon Carnes
