	There's not much documentation on the e-mail interface to 
Mailman.  What documentation there is, unfortunately, it oriented 
towards users (see <http://www.list.org/mailman-member/node10.html>). 
Pretty much all the list manager documentation at 
<http://www.list.org/admins.html> is aimed at people who will be 
using the web interface.

	This issue is addressed in the FAQ.  See
