[Mailman-Users] Difficulties with mailman 2.1.5

I am the administrator of an E-list run by mailman at
my ISP, PatriotNet, and as admin I'm experiencing difficulties.
(PatriotNet has installed v 2.1.5)
These difficulties are, in ascending order of importance:
1. It often takes two or more repetitions to log on to the
administrative page. I am always careful about typing my
2. When I go to the Membership Management/mass subscription
page to subscribe a new member, this subscription often does
not "take". I get a nice screen saying "X is successfully
subscribed", and I get E-mail saying that "X has been subscribed",
but when I check it turns out that X is not in the list of
members. I find it remarkable that confirmation messages are
sent out, without the file of list members having been successfully
3. Worst of all: I want messages sent by our members to be
sent also to the member that sent them. This is not at present
occurring. I have _not_ checked the button in
General Options -- Additional Settings -- Do not send a
copy of a member's own post
Also, in the Membership list, the entry "not metoo" has _not_
been checked. I can find no other place where this behavior
can be changed.
I am cc-ing the support staff at patriot.net, since they will be
interested in any replies I get. PatriotNet is a Linux shop, but
I do not know what python version they are running. I myself
have programming experience, but no acquaintance with python.
Many thanks for anticipated help.
