[Mailman-Users] regular_exclude_lists (nondigest) does not work with hosting service

I have several lists under one domain.  I'd like to avoid duplicate 
posts when the same message is sent to multiple lists on the domain.  
GNU Mailman version is 2.1.11 supports this.  The hosting service I used 
just updated to GNU Mailman version 2.1.11.

However, when I change the setting for regular_exclude_lists in the 
admin panel for non-digest options, the new setting has no effect and 
duplicate messages are still received by the list.

I am a list owner but not site administrator.  The hosting service 
administers the site.  I have contacted their technical support, but 
mine is probably their first request related to this feature.  So, they 
are slow getting back to me.

I do know that they have disabled monthly password reminders so that it 
doesn't matter what settings I use in that regard, the setting will just 
be ignored.

Might regular_exclude_lists also have been disabled?

I have created a test site to see if starting from scratch I can get it 
to work, but I am still waiting for the DNS to propagate,
regular_exclude_lists* (nondigest): Other mailing lists on this site 
whose members are excluded from the regular (non-digest) delivery if 
those list addresses appear in a To: or Cc: header.
