I have a question. Is it possible to configure this thing so that it
doesn't send out confirmations to the entire list. In fact, I would be
perfectly happy if I never saw a single confirmation of any of my posts. I
don't see why anyone needs a computer to tell them that they sent out a
message. It's just noise.

What do you think? Is this a reasonable request?

One other question. Let's say I wanted to do what you are doing right
now (setting up a listserve mailing list), but maybe for some other
chemical topic like dye-sensitized photovoltaics. What would I do to get
started? Just talk to the campus techies running the university computer?
Personally I'm not a programmer. Is that going to kill me?

Thanks for any info.
