Majordomo makes a very strong distinction between managing the list
(what you want) and managing what gets sent to the list (what you
don't want). It does the former and NOT the latter.
The "resend" program that I posted about earlier today will be
included with future Majordomo releases, but it's there for
completeness; it's not required by Majordomo. If you've already got
something that works for managing what gets sent to the list, feel
free to use that instead of "resend".
