Thanks. I looked at the archives, but so far I'm not seeing anything
particularly useful. Does anyone know what exactly is being passed to
my handler? does anyone know where msg, mlist and msgdata are defined
(or the appropriate variables) ? Not even sure I'm making sense.

I'll keep digging and if I find anything I'll post.

Thanks again Brad.

You're looking for a custom handler. Unfortunately, there don't
appear to be any FAQs addressing this issue, but I do know that this
subject has been discussed many times on the mailman-users and
mailman-developers lists, so you should search the archives.

When you find posts that provide the information you need, please
feel free to create a suitable entry for the subject in the
community-supported FAQ Wizard.
