FAQ
Thanks Mark, I came to the same conclusion and have made a hack that
might do the job (emphasis on "hack", not so much on the "might do the
job"!) Members would sign up via a php form that later uses their
username and password to set delivery off after they've confirmed. A
little weird and maybe risky, but it's the easiest thing that came to
mind.

Regards,

Hello -- I imagine this is a strange request, but I'm wondering if it is
possible to set the options of a new member with default of "set delivery
off"?

No, there is no way to default delivery to 'off'.

E.g., if they are subscribing by email, would something like the following
be possible:

To: list-request at domain.com
From: myemail at address.com
Subject:
subscribe
set delivery off

Actually, I think it might work, but only if the list allows fully open
(no confirmation/no approval) subscribes because in order to set
delivery off, you have to be a member and authenticate, so you might do

To: list-request at domain.com
From: myemail at address.com
Subject:

subscribe <password>
set authenticate <password>
set delivery off

but if the subscribe is waiting confirmation or approval, the set
commands will fail. Also, you have to provide the password for the
subscribe so you know what it is for the set authenticate.
