Thank you all for your suggestions. I have set up VERP via Mailman in
mm_cfg.py. I logged in to the list admin and followed guidelines about
enabling Personalization. I referred to this:


I may be missing something, but I don't see anything under 'Non-digest
options' for enabling Personalization. Does it just refer to custom
headers, footers, etc? It seems that you can do that anyways without the
setting allowing Personalization in mm_cfg.py. Also, when enabling
something in mm_cfg.py, the guidelines say to use 1=true/yes, but then I
see it looking something like the following. Maybe this is part of the
problem. I would appreciate some clarification. Thank you.
