Thanks Roger. I guess I was expecting to find an automated way of doing
this. With Mailman one can just send automated commands to the list-server,
in the body of the e-mail. E.g.

"set delivery off"

to put the list into no-mail mode. 

I've gotten a list of commands that Majordomo@xxxxxxxx understands, and
it's surprisingly small. They're still running Majordomo 1.94.5. Apparently
"nomail" is a majordomo 2 command and is not supported with 1.94.5

So you have to add each user who wants no-mail/delivery-off mode to a
white-list manually, er? That sucks! Are those folks at seul.org planning
to upgrade majordomo 2 anytime soon?

Sorry, I've never seen your e-mail. My mailbox was total a mess. I set up
all types of filters and deleted a whole bunch of e-mails on the server
without downloading them. But I was keeping an eye on this thread in

So I saw right away when your reply appeared there :)
