Well, I am pretty pleased with the web based interface to the mailing list
management system, but it also has its own quirks, like failing to deliver
mail because of "implicit destination" from a properly subscribed
member... (on the other hand, I have a place to correct that problem from
the web page and let the mail go through. My bitch is that I shouldn't
have had to do that ;-(
