I'm running mj 1.93 quite happily now, but I have a question about 
setting my archive directories up properly.

I'm using, and it gives me a 
"Invalid archive directory...aborting" message unless I hardwire the
archive directory for each list into the file as follows

> # the safe locations for archive directories. This should be defined as
> # a series of root anchored directory paths as will be used as prefixes
> # to the file names specified to the script.
> @archive_dirs = ( "/usr/local/majordomo/archive/riviera-l",  {cut}
		"/usr/local/majordomo/archive/cwn",          {cut}
		"/usr/spool/archive/firewalls" );

(Note: I've inserted the {cut}'s here for clarity only)

My question is this, is there a way to specify the archive 
directory in the following manner:

@archive_dirs = ( "/usr/local/majordomo/archive/$list", {cut}
		"/usr/spool/archive/firewalls" );
