Another question.  Most of the time VirginRunner is at max CPU,
sending address removal notifications.  I have already set the lists
to zero bounce notifications.  Is there a separate config item for
"you have been removed" messages?

One propety of these lists is that there is a high incidence of bad
addresses - the developer of the web front end refuses to do any kind
of validation before they are added to the mailman backend.

So most of the removals are destined for non-existent addresses and
should not be notified.
