Hi Al,

We haven't had anyone write in with scenarios like the one you're  
describing. If I understand you correctly, you're looking for a  
client-application that can do a lot of the mailing list  
functionality that is currently handled on the server end?

This would certainly make an interesting plug-in to Chandler,  
although I don't yet have a clear sense of exactly what features  
would be necessary to support all the use cases you're interested in.
