you could make it moderated and pre-approve your own postings.
you'd still get approval needed remailings from MD if someone
did attempt posting tho. I guess you could handle that
with "canned-reply" procmail or other mail filter at the
we need something like that but want the return address
"reply-to" to go to list-owner. its also a notice board,
for a group, (mostly meeting notices and other adminitrative
notices and the list-owner alias will point at the responsible
people's address(s). so group members can ask admin type
querys of the list-owner(s) at that alias. we figured a closed
list, restrict_post'd, with all posts reply-to'ed to the list owner
would get us a outgoing only mailing list, only the listowner(s)
would be in the restrict_post list. does that sound right?
