Hi this is a bit of a newbie question so sorry if it has been asked
I'm evaluating various list managers to look after a newsletter mailing
list. The feature I'm specifically after, is the ability to allow users

separate business application on a weekly basis. What I am trying to
achieve is the ability to import that list into the list manager,

I notice that there is a "nomail" feature in the Mailman package. Can I
use this to accomplish what I am after?

to set this, so is it possible with an email based "nomail" command
rather like the "unsubscribe" command.

Is this possible?
