Thanks for your thoughts.  I was able to subscribe to the Apache users 
list with my primary email address from my wife's Windows box, which is 
behind a Debian firewall.  No problems, no questions.

Once again, the problem is not my setup.  I can post to every other list 
I'm on, no problems - Debian, Red Hat, Procmail, fvwm, inn, ip-masq, 
(several others I won't bore you with).  The problem is one of 
discrimination against Linux when it's used as a desktop.  As I stated, 
I had no trouble subscribing from my wife's Windows computer.  I went 
through the subscription steps including authenticating my email 
address, and was a member of the list within 2 minutes from when I 
initiated the subscription request.

I have no choice in using several email addresses.  My responsibilities 
require I do so.  I HAVE to be able to respond to queries to 
support@(nazarene.ch|fcwm.org|wesleyan.net) using the respective 
support email address, because replies to my letters to clients are 
forwarded to several other people on the support staff for each 
organization.  If I don't do so, but instead use only my 
username@machine.name, I receive the mail fine, but none of the other 
support staff members do.  That is totally unacceptable.

I would like to sincerely thank the two people who actually answered my 
question and sent me suggestions for other web servers.  I was able to 
without problems subscribe to the AOLserver list.  I'll be testing it 
to see if it does what we need.
