Thankfully, this doesn't happen on a large scale since threw some
money at a new machine for us. Plus we've moved to MailMan and Postfix
instead of MailMan and Sendmail.

All this without wasting our money on a Listserv license. <g>

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
