	Yup, mailman can do the same.

	You can do that.  Or, you can add the staff members to the "white 
list" for the faculty mailing list, and all the specified e-mail 
addresses will be able to post, in addition to the subscribers.

	Of course, nothing will stop someone else from forging an e-mail 
address and posting as someone who is subscribed.
