A little observation about this - Spacing doesn't seem to be very important 
in the syntax above.  I am often given a spreadsheet with one column of 
names and one column of email addys.  I insert a column on either side of 
the email addy column, and then populate those columns with either < or > as 
appropriate.  Then I copy the whole mess and paste it into the mass 
subscribe area.  This results in funny looking stuff like:

John Doe  <     johndoe at myemail.com  >
William Barnes Doe     <     billsaddy at email.com        >

But Mailman is fine with that and the subscription works perfectly!

- John (not Doe)...
