Thanks again for your guidance, Mark.

There is one last thing, I tried to subscribe to a mailing list and I
put the Subscription rules as "Confirm only". The problem is there's no
email sent to me after I click the button "Subscribe".

Furthermore, when I send and email to venus at mail.mys.avagotech.net and
put the title as "Testing", there is no email received by all the

Any idea?

Assuming Apache, you may need to add the FollowSymLinks option to the
archives/public/ directory or you may need to add o+x to the
permissions on archives/private/. See the apache error log for
possible additional info.

Without a knowledge of Python and Mailman to create a withlist script,
see 'bin/list_members --help' and 'bin/clone_member --help'.
Basically, you can use bin/list_members to make a list of the members,
edit that to delete all the non xxx at agilent.com addresses then edit
further to create lines like

bin/clone_member -r xxx at agilent.com xxx at avagotech.com

and run that as a shell script.
