Thanks.  Our webmaster set me straight on the mailing lists vs. newsgroups 
bits, and your right, we do use a news server.

I'm using Eudora to filter the mailman mail to its own mailbox, and then 
within the mailbox I can sort the "letters" by subject.  This gives me all 
the discussions on a topic.  I have to refresh the sort every day, but 
that's ok.  It looks fine, I just had to get used to it.

I do like you're idea of using a different account -- it makes things much
