There is also an extremely detailed account of how to do this under
Mailman on the FAQ. Which had the OP read, he would have needed to
post frequently answered questions to this mailing list.

Mailman is not suffering from 'feature bloat', if you don't like it -
*use* *something* *else*. It's called choice. Go away and exercise it.
The tone of your message is rude and unnecessary in the extreme. Did you
even think about expressing your 'opinions' on the MLM3 mailing list?
Obviously not!

I run an announcements only list and find Mailman to be a breath of fresh
air to use. If you don't, find another MLM to use, or code your own, and
stop flaming Mailman.

Oh, and typically it's best to quote the relevant bits of text from the
post you are replying to with a character such as >, |, etc. it makes it
easier for everyone else to read.
