Ok, I figured out the parameters. Is there a utility that will configure my 
aliases file for my users when setting up lists? If not, I'll surely have to 
use another list manager...it pretty much makes it so i have to babysit my 
site users and i'd rather not do that. I was told that this is a very mature 
product by many others, if so, are there third party script resources 
available for this type of functionality? Should I put in an RFE for 
this?...I can't really believe that everyone is doing this manually for every 
list on their server.
