	You could create an umbrella list, and/or use the patch by Jim 
Tittsler that has recently been mentioned.

	This sort of thing is also an option, and I think Mark has 
explained the syntax.

	However, I'm curious as to whether or not you've considered 
making the lists open to posts from non-members?  That would allow 
what you want without requiring any patches or regular expressions. 
Of course, it would increase the amount of spam that might get 
through to the list, but then intelligent spammers could always 
monitor the output from the list and then spoof one of the subscribed 

	Just a thought.
