Before sending out my last mailing (it's an announce list) I set mailman
to do 'full personalization' so I could find out who was hitting the
spam button. The TOS notifications I got back had this at the top:

ALERT: Your feedback loop is not in ARF (Abuse Reporting Format).
Beginning September 2, 2008, all feedback loops will be converted to ARF.
To learn more about how this will impact you, please read more about how AOL
uses ARF at http://postmaster.aol.com/fbl/arfinfo.html.  Also read the
announcement of our plan to convert all feedback loops to ARF on our blog at
Please make any necessary preparations to accept ARF feedback loops before the
September 2, 2008 conversion.  To change your existing non-ARF loops to ARF,
fill out our online support form at http://postmaster.aol.com/waters/fbl_change_form.html.

What exactly is this telling me? Does mailman or exim need to be changed
or do I need to do something?
