What I really want is: That the list server should not be managed in any
matter by anyone but me. The users should only recieve "special" mails
from the list server if they post someting illigal. I add users by command
line. Passwords should not be something to warry about.

If I use procmail to drop all mail to *-request at my.domain whould that do it?
