Hi again,
	Indeed, I knew what you were saying, but the variants of so 
many operating systems makes it nigh on impossible to have things so 
	Like you, I have been struggling with Mailman & trust me, 
once you nail it, you will wonder exactly where you went wrong & why 
when it was so obvious.
	I found the combination of these 3 tutorials the best for my 
system (Mac OSX w/POostfix), but you'll need to substitute your 
system's paths in many places:

	My suggestion is to get the command line way of creating 
lists working firstly, then look at fixing up the web interface - if 
I can help you out, I will try.

	Bye for now, Terry Allen
