Also, it seems to use sendmail for its deliveries. This makes it take
10-20 minutes before email reaches me (sometimes more). I wish they would
use qmail instead (for instance). Dont know if they use majordomo but I
have successfully made majordomo use qmail-inject and use qmail for
outgoing list-mail whilst still using sendmail for incoming email (for
flexibility with aliases etc. Makes the transition much easier.
