The sad bit is that if/when my old Mailman service gets rolled into the
University's main mailing lists service, they run Majordomo (no, I'm not
kidding, nor about them running Majorcool either!).
So if/when that happens, I'll have to move the ZendTo list elsewhere.
I've got the other half of a physical server (It runs 2 VMs for me) in
Ireland that can do it. I haven't used that half since the MailScanner
list got moved off it, so there'll be some rust removal to do first.
Thanks for the warning.
