Jay, I've worked with Endymion's MailMan 3 - great setup and very flexible.
You will really like it once you have it in place. Plus, you can even
customize all of the buttons/images, etc. This way, if you don't like that
default layout, in a few minutes, you can have it look any way you want. It
also allows for integration of images into posts, etc. for realistically
handling the common need to include an image or two of whatever is being
discussed (IE: RS6000 board specs/traces, C64 diagram, etc.).
