Sorry, that was quite an oversite on my part.  Obviously you'd need to know
this info....

Right now, I'm just using the ZMailer to manage my mailing lists.  As you
mentioned above, my lists are in $MAILSHARE/lists/.  However, ZMailer isn't
suppressing duplicates on these internal lists....

Sometime in the future, I'll be moving to majordomo for list management;
