Re: Male sexual enhancement formula^

There are several solutions that I can see:

1)  Have the mailserver reject the first delivery attempt by a non-list
recipient.  (Or, for that matter, the first delivery attempt of *any*

2)  Require that someone who is not on the list to respond to an
automatic response.

3) Reject non-subscribed senders.

#1 will probably induce an unacceptable load on the mailserver.
#2 will induce some load, but at the listserv level.
#3 will probably have the least load, but will prevent non-subscribers
from asking questions.
