No, I'm not talking about the server. The mailman I am using resides on 
the UNIX server at which I am hosted. I only mentioned Apple Mac 
because that's what computer I use and I wanted to give all info 

As you say that you can help if it's YOUR installation and tarballs 
(whatever they are), well it IS yours, so I am putting the question 
back to you, please (quoted below).

Thanks in advance
