Thank you both for that info. I am not sure that I have the
knowledge/confidence to go looking into directories that aren't my
home directory. In any case even if I did succeed it could probably
get me into trouble with my hoster.

But this does lead me to think of a few more questions. If I closed 
my mailing list then wouldn't all the Mailman archive files be 
deleted ?

If I did that then I could presumably start the list again. Identical
to the previous list. But with archiving turned "off" from the
beginning ?

Regards, John.
