Thanks Daniel,

That clears a few things up. This peticular list is an html based 110%
opt-in newsletter list. I plan on creating a text version after i get this
one exactly like I want it.

OK, you should have either a /usr/adm/sm.bin or /etc/smrsh directory
to hold links for programs you want to let run from sendmail /etc/aliases.
This is where you would create the link to the majordomo/wrapper binary
using the command you already mentioned.

If resend already runs fine for plain text mail, smrsh is not your problem. keeps an arhive (downloadable) of each month's list traffic
if you need to replace your majordomo-users mail folder.

If you wish to allow HTML email to go through your list, you can not use
the fronter or footer sections of your listname.config file.  HTML email
is MIME encoded, and majordomo does not decode anything to insert these.

It is actually considered poor netiquette to use anything but plain text
email when corresponding through mailing lists, as not all members of the
list are capable of viewing rich text content anyway.  Only in rare cases
where you know every list member is using Netscape, Eudora, or Outlook as
their mail client (or other webified mail tool) should you allow anything
but plain text in your mailing list.
