Besides that ... i forgot in my proposal that it would be a one time
situation, that you have to confirm your post. Once you've done it one
time you will be added to the whitelist and never have to do it again
for that address.

have to wipe the hole mailinglist server and recreate all mailinglists.
Takes some time to collect all data (archives, users etc.)

I hope to get it done this week.
