*grin*   I, too, didn't want to bog down the list, but I gambled that
helping the list as a whole would be worth it.

% Anyway, it doesn't have to plug into the mailman list "management" system
% (ugh, mailman kinda bites), just have procmail deliver to mailman.  In


% your aliases, instead of:
% eepro100: "|/usr/bin/mailman -s eepro100" (or whatever the syntax is)
% do:
% eepro100: "|/usr/bin/procmail"


% and have your procmail recipe pipe to the appropriate list.  It may be
% easier to turn each mailing list into its own mailbox so you can get a
% separate .procmailrc (and thus a separate, per-list pipe).

Sounds like a good idea...
