I may have asked this before, but if so I can't find it in my archives.

Is there a way to send a test message to a list without it being sent out to the entire list? Something like a ping that only replies to you?

I have a list I host for a friend that is very sporadic. When active it can get 100 posts a day, but those days come infrequently.

Sometimes he's concerned that posts are getting lost (it's happened in the past that some configuration muckup has borked the list) and he'd like to be able to check that the list is ok.

years ago we knew it was a globe. Today we know it is flat and round
carried through space on the back of a turtle. Don't you wonder what
shape it will turn out to be tomorrow?" [Lord Vetinari]  --The Truth
