      **Compared to YahooGroups** it's not well supported.  If you allow 
HTML the digests are a challenge for many e-mail programs.  There is 
apparently no way to strip the html and send plain text digests, and 
selecting plain digest results in not getting some posts at all.  It would 
also be nice to be able to reject some attachments and still allow html.

      None of this is to say I don't like or use Mailman - I'm simply 
trying to give a comparison to Y!G.
