Hi Mark
  I'm glad that to hear that it should be doing the sensible thing.  The
subject prefix for each list is
[list1] and [list2]
It's mailman version 2.1.5
Unfortunately I am a list owner but not a sys admin for the machine running
mailman so I don't have any access to check the mailman installation for the
.py file, is there a way to get that info from mailman?
