Sound great Petr!

I was considering to offer hosting it myself, but my host doesn't have
mailman installed (it has majordomo), and I really like the archive
functionality we currently have as provided by mailman (essentially it's
the only thing that still seems to work reliably).

@Álvaro: the problem for me is not so much that messages are labeled spam
(your solution will solve that); the problem is that from the current host
some messages simply don't arrive at all (so not even in my spam folder).
For instance, I could only read your reply by checking the archive.

@Dave: Yes I understand it requires some maintenance to keep things in
shape, but we are currently in a situation where a substantial part of the
messages never arrive and new people cannot even subscribe to the list (at
least me and Ingo weren't able to register a new address recently). So
unless Michael or one of us takes action this list seems destined to die.

Best,
Erik


PS I BCCed my original message to Michael on both his dvandva and yahoo
address, but so far didn't see a reply. Also on an earlier message I never
got a reaction. Does anyone know if he's ok?
