[Mailman-Users] To those looking for help

      I've been off the list for a couple of weeks due to a server crash - 
when I came back I found a LOT of messages that are to vague to be 
answered, have nothing to do with Mailman, are answered in the FAQ, or show 
a lack of needed knowledge to follow an answer.  So, as a public service here:

      This list if for Mailman and issues directly related to it.  General 
questions about Linux, sendmail, or other non Mailman issues will probably 
be ignored.

      If you do not have a basic understanding of Linux, and are 
comfortable working from the command line - forget about installing 
Mailman.  Either pay someone to install it for you, or pay for list service.

      This is a USERS list - it's peer help, not an "official" Mailman 
support system.  No one here is paid to do this, and it's done as we have 
time.  You may not get an answer in an hour, and posting a second time the 
same day reduces the odds you will get an answer.

     Did you check the FAQ (http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py)?  A 
lot of common answers are there.  Did you check the various README files 
that came with MM?  Have you tried the searchable archives 

      Currently we have no mind readers on this list - so you will need to 
give important details like which version of Mailman you are running, what 
the OS is, MTA and so on.  Give a clear description of the problem, and 
include error messages when applicable.
