Hi All --
I am brand new to using mailman. I'm trying to set it up for an

Currently I have two separate databases. One has the names and emails
(from Yahoo groups) and the other in postgres has first/last
name,email, company, title, phone, etc.

email fields? While I recognize this would complicate things -- I'd
really like to leverage the great interface, password mailing,
confirmation -- etc. all in a broader membership database.
I'm considering writing in-between cgi wrappers that take online form
submissions and parse the other data into a postgres database -- but
it would be great if there were an easy way to add it into Mailman.

For example, if I do have to store the comapny name for each member in
an external database, is there a way to get it into each email when
