We have mailing lists for users, and the lists are in directory
$MAILSHARE/lists, for example all faculty members are in
$MAILSHARE/lists/fac, where "fac" is a file contains all faculty
memebers' login name.  The permission on $MAILSHARE/lists/fac is 640,
owned by "root", group "other".  The problem is that we only want this
$MAILSHARE/lists/fac mailing list to be used by our faculty members,
not by all users (i.e. the students, and guests).  Right now anyone can
send a mail the mailing list fac.  So is there a way the restrict the
access to $MAILSHARE/lists/fac.
