This might very well work.  But speaking only for myself, I would not 
be interested in being on the mailman-help list.

I'm perfectly happy to use the Mailman standard site admin tools to 
create a new list for this function, but other people are going to 
have to be the listowner and/or moderator, as well as the 
knowledgeable people on the list who would be responding back to 
these "help" requests.

If this mechanism works, I think it would help take some of the load 
off mailman-users, since you'd probably get fewer people sending 
e-mail if the list isn't linked directly from that particular place 
on the Mailman web space at list.org & gnu.org.

Beyond that, I'm not sure I have anything useful to add.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006.  If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
