One warning about world: while the opertion is very shaped up, and so you 
should have no problems running your list there, they have a rather 
strange and intrusive [and counter-to-the-RFCs] policy about spam 
blocking that can *prevent* folk from posting to your list.  They'll get 
back a mysterious "550 Wrong!" error in the nastygram with no 
explanation.

As a footnote, same is true if you have an account on world: you'll find 
that some legitimate correspondents *cannot* send you email because it 
gets spam-blocked [e.g., for a while, both AOL and Hotmail were on their 
hitlist and I had one correspondent who could only email me because he 
knew a non-world email address for me] ... even as recently as last week 
I was chatting with a friend whose account is still on world [I moved my 
list when I learned about this!!] who *still* has trouble with some 
correspondents being able to get mail through to him.

Caveat world-user.
