Well, the problem is that there aren't just a few lists which should not be
showed to me, but several lists from other customers using the same
server (there are about 10-20 people per server I think) ... so if all their
lists would be set to "noadvertise", only I would be able to use MC.

Is there any software outside there which supports such multi-user-configs?
