[Mailman-Users] How to stop sendmail from spewing messages one it starts?

I just ran into 2 problems.
1). A user added a large number of subscribers by uploading
an Excel spreadsheet. Mailman accepted the file and
addresses appeared reasonable when viewed with IE but
not so good with mozilla (each alpha char was followed by
a box). I was able to remove the names using the
remove_members command by removing all members.
It seems that it might be a good check when importing a
list of users, for mailman to make sure it is a text file
so users don't mess things up inadvertantly.
2). The second problem that developed is that the user has
set notification on subscribing to yes and so she and
her boss bere getting several thousand emails.
I finally had to completely delete the list.
Is there a better way to tell mailman to stop sending email
from a specific list? If that is possible, I have not
bumped into an explanation how mailman works so I would
be able to stop it sending emails.
Thanks in advance.
