Yes what you are wanting to do can be done. I believe Stephen has
already answered as to the "How".
However I would recommend that /not/ configure your mailing list so that
""parents (subscribers) reply back to them selves. Rather I would
strongly suggest that you send replies back to a public positional
address (info@ / parents@ / pta@ / etc.) that is used for general
contact at the school. That way ""parents (subscribers) can
conveniently reply and have their replies directed somewhere that is
capable of correctly handling their reply. I have found this to be a
good P.R. move for the clients that I have set it up for.
