I'm sorry, Hank, didn't mean to send it directly to you.  And thank you for your help.

Hello Tim:

You may not be aware of it, but your response was mailed to me, and
not to the mailman-user's list.  

The questions you are asking are questions I shouldn't try to answer.
My primary platforms are Sun Solaris, and I run a locally-modified
version of Mailman.  Setting the distro Mailman up on a Solaris system is
fairly easy, but the intentions of the developers in the installation
manual have to be interpreted for Solaris.

I'm not at all familiar with details of any Linux implementation, so
answers to your questions would have to come from the mail list.
