[Mailman-Users] A few questions about mailman 2.1.14 install on Dreamhost

I'm considering the move of a longstanding discussion list with 600+ 
members from L-Soft Listserv (hosted at a university) to Mailman on 
Dreamhost (v2.1.14.)

There are a few management features I've really grown to like from 
hosting other lists -- I was hoping if someone can tell me if there's 
any way to enable them in Mailman (assuming one can't hack Dreamhost's 
install . . .?)

1) Mark S helped me get a modification set up to a current mailman list 
I manage that enabled real-time notifications of moderation requests 
(Thanks again!).  Any way to do this here?

2) I suspect there's a fair amount of joining and leaving this list each 
day in its current incarnation, but don't have a way to receive 
notifications; of course Mailman does have the option of having owners 
notified when members join and leave, but I'm afraid this could generate 
too much mail for some moderators.  Is there a way to set this 
preference individually like in Yahoogroups so that a mod who didn't 
want these messages could not get them, while the other mods still would?

3) I may just be tired but is there a was to set the archives to be 
available only when logged in? And/or to munge e-mail addresses like on 

Ugh . . . I think there was a number 4 but maybe it will come back to me.
Clarifying questions welcome if anything's not clear.
