[Mailman-Users] restarting a blocked list

Thanks for the suggestion.  I just find it strange that the seem procedure 
is working with other lists on the same Mailman installation.  Are there 
any other restrictions I should know about concerning the header or 
configurations?  For example, maybe there is a configuration option that is 
controllable about what gets put in the headers, and that is set 
differently on the different lists.  I have tried playing with a few of the 
settings and comparing between lists, but so far have not had any 
luck.  Plus, while I am at it :--), each time the announcements go out, 
there is now a CC: line going to the list address, that all recipients 
receive.  I have played with that as well, but it still shows up, ever 
since we moved to 2.1.2.
