Sorry to hear of your husband's death. I understand how overwhelmed
you must feel. My first husband died 22 yrs ago.
When you go to look at your tools pages, they will appear differently
with mailman than they do for smartlist. It will be obvious enough
that you will know your list has migrated to the new software. It
will take about 10 minutes to check your settings and copy back any
customised files you backed up. Longer if you decide to rewrite your
welcome message -- only 1 needed now, not two.
You will receive notice of actions pending your attention, via email.
Also --- with mailman, it allows you to have an assistant. Perhaps one
of your listers would be willing and interested to come forward while
you are dealing with your loss and all the legalities that come when
we are least prepared to deal with them. It may also be possible to
get a list sitter for a bit.
Admin peer support is being offered on the ListOwners list, as always.
You will find the discussion, currently is mostly on the migration.
Good luck to you . Take care.
