This part could be tricky. Most list members will "save" (i.e. forget to delete) at least some if not most of the messages they receive. Lots of them will contain quoted material written by other list members. In other words, none of you will have much control over how much of what you say on the list will be available to others later if they get access to list members' mailboxes.

Are these corporate mailboxes you'll be using, or private ones? I've never used it, but you can have regular expression in ban_list to prevent people subscribing with their work addresses.
