	You can run external log processing scripts that will take the 
syslog data generated by your MTA and turn that into a report which 
they might potentially be able to make some sense of.  However, this 
is not integrated into Mailman.

	If you want to see what's possible here, your options will vary 
depending on your MTA.  If you're using postfix, take a look at 
"pflogsumm" (see <http://jimsun.linxnet.com/postfix_contrib.html>). 
One MTA-independant method is to use "lire" from logreport.org.
