To completely remove a list

1. Run the rmlist command.

# bin/rmlist -a list
(NOTE: -a = Removes list archives)

2. Remove entries in the MTA alias file.

3. Make sure rmlist removed the list configuration & archives.  (If told to
do so).
Config is stored in $prefix/list/$listname
Archives stored in $prefix/archives/private/$listname and

If you do not have shell access, then contact the sysadmin to run these
