Thank you Mark!  I don't really need the password in the message (nice 
to have, but not needed).  I can always deal with that separately if I 
have to.  Since most of the lists on my server only have one admin the 
other limitation shouldn't be an issue and I can always change which 
email address is listed first for the admin.  This will also be handy 
when the admin role for a list changes hands.
