Of course, I read it as posting with no subscription, which was totally wrong.

Sorry! Too much spam lately!

Oh and this option is not available under majordomo, only listserv. Well, 
there maybe other mail servers around but they are the ones I see. 
I just went through exactly this rigmarole 2 hours ago with the 
extropians list. They have a seperate list for aliases, as they 
run majordomo and it won't do this. I really like majordomo but 
listserv does have that function.

yeah but they use spoofed addresses don't they? 
Some lists have confirmation steps. Good idea.

But this list has yet to have that problem, I think.
