Well, Mailman 2.1.8 has security issues, so you'll need to make sure 
to update that to 2.1.9.  It would be nice if they'd find out about 
these things and do them for you, or stick with an earlier version 
which may have been minus some of the newer features but also didn't 
have the security holes.

Kinda what I figured.

I guess the bigger issue here is that most people using these kinds 
of systems are unlikely to have the skills necessary to be able to 
upgrade things under the Plesk hood and still keep Plesk working.

Heck, I've worked on these kinds of systems myself, and since I don't 
know how Plesk does a lot of things internally, even I don't know for 
sure if I could do that kind of thing -- with reasonable guarantees 
that it would all keep working correctly.
