All of the list and server defaults are in the Defaults.py file but 
DO NOT change that one. It gets overwritten when Mailman is upgraded.

You can put the settings you want in the mm_cfg.py file, this file is 
used to override defaults and set other options like msg_footer etc. 
at list creation. The settings you want have to be in that file when 
you create the list or they won't be set.
