Thanks, Mark. Apparently the option to provide for limiting postings is a
hard problem. The Sympa people didn't know whether it could be accomplised
with a scenario or not. I will start reading the mailman developers archive
and submit a request for such features in mailman ver. 3.

I hope you're right about that assessment of the difficulty. If it really
is rather easy, I would be willing to pay a python (or Linux) wizard to add
that functionality.

I know that there is a limited free version of LISTSERV that runs on
Gnu/Linux but I don't know if LSMTP can be used in that context.
