[Mailman-Users] A funny thing happened while using mail man.

Thu Mar 31 20:43:58 CEST 2005

I incorrectly set up my newsletter.  Instead of being announce only it  
allowed 400 people to reply to all.  shortly there after people emails were  filled 
with hundred of "please stop sending me email".  If no one had  replied 
there'd be no mess, but that's the funny part.   The not funny  part is I might get 
fired over this. its has been three day and the emails wont  stop.  We 
removed the database, we stopped using mail man, and we prayed a  little that it 
would fade.  However it hasn't yet.
I now know how to set it up as announce only.  I even know how to put  my 
database on with out sending out a thank you for subscribing mail.  How  do I 
stop the continuing replies?
Sorry to bother you about this, it was my own ignorance that put me here,  
but I was hoping that you might be able to suggest sometihng to get me  out.
