I decided to simply use the moderated function. The owner would simply
have to delete the mail or resend it to the proper list if it's important...
And you are right about the "writeconfig" command which adds the
listname.config comments back into the file.
So I use the "newconfig" command and follow up with the "writeconfig"
command to recreate a complete .config file...
Thanks for the help.
