The primary purpose of the site list is to provide the address from
which password reminders are sent. However, the site list is also
exposed on both the listinfo and admin overview web pages as an
address to write to for help.

It is recognized that the generic defaults are not appropriate for the
site list. Thus, a config_list input file is provided in
data/sitelist.cfg to configure the list more appropriately although it
still may not be appropriate for all uses.

See section 8 of the installation manual
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/site-list.html> which discusses
configuring the site list.
