[Mailman-Users] Feature request: Emergency Broadcast

1. Mailman aliases not working (like in my case)
2. Unable to access my email, but have access to web (which is common 
for those of us behind corporate firewalls)
3. My email is broken, but my internet it still working

However, even with these reasons, I wouldn't consider it a big deal, 
especially if it's difficult to implement.  After my list is working 
again, I'll probably forget all about it.  :)
