Apparently the Windows installer mentions asking for help on Python List.

If accessing Python List directly via email it is necessary to subscribe first -- perhaps that could be mentioned? 
Bonus Python Points for mentioning the other methods that do not require subscribing.  :)

Rejection text sent to non-subscribers follows:
"Hello!  I see you want to post a message to the Python List.  We
would be happy to help, but you must subscribe first:


After you have subscribed, please send your message again.

Alternatively, this list is mirrored both ways with the
comp.lang.python newsgroup (news:comp.lang.python).

Some people find it easier to follow this and other lists via gmane
(http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.general), a service which
offers a newsgroup interface to many online mailing lists.
