	So far as I can tell, this thread is about a problem with 
Defaults.py and the "DEFAULT_URL=" setting, and has nothing to do 
with the hiding of e-mail addresses.  I think maybe you cut-n-pasted 
the wrong URL, or something.

	If you're concerned about privacy issues, I'd encourage you to 
upgrade to version 2.1.5 and perhaps turn off the archive function, 
or at least make sure that people can't download the non anti-spammed 
version of the archives (see 

	Looking at the list of patches for Mailman at 
<http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=103&atid=300103> and the 
list of known bugs at 
<http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=103&atid=100103>, I'm not

<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py> and see if there are any 
other entries which are related to exposing e-mail addresses or 
privacy, and you can search the archives of the mailman-users list 
according to the instructions at 

	If you can find anything that appears to be more specific to your 
problem, we might be able to provide better advice.
