Hello all,

I am using Mailman 2.1.1 and most of my lists are newsletter distribution type lists, requiring posting by one user and subscribe/unsubscribe by many users. I found the setup for a newsletter list in the FAQ, so I'm set up ok.

My question is which of the 10 alias entries are *required* to support this type of list. I understand that Mailman will generate some of these addresses when creating the headers to support things like bounced message processing. I plan to use the web interface for all admin functions, and so really only want to post, subscribe and unsubscribe. 

Here are my aliases for one list to help with a real-world explaination.

## newsletter-ark mailing list
newsletter-ark:              "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-admin:        "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman admin newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-bounces:      "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-confirm:      "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman confirm newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-join:         "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman join newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-leave:        "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman leave newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-owner:        "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman owner newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-request:      "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman request newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-subscribe:    "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe newsletter-ark"
newsletter-ark-unsubscribe:  "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe newsletter-ark"

Thank you very much!
