At the risk of being growled at for a "me too" message..... :)
yeah, me too! I miss being able to post to a group or all of my lists
at one time, when there is need/occassion to.
BCC was not necessary to an Admin prior to MailMan. Now if we do not
want to expose a list of lists we admin, we are pretty much forced to
send a painful one message at a time, rinse, repeat, til done.
Admin for over 60 Clans lists... and more.
