Sorry: they were supposed to be examples, based on what I'm running.

You should be able to use any e-mail client, not just mutt.

Postfix isn't really relevant at all: I use the traditional "local MTA"
for various reasons. If your ISP has a reasonable smarthost (= "SMTP
server"), you could just send your list e-mail out through that.

The main point is that the way you send e-mails to the list (or
elsewhere) need not have anything much to do with the way you receive

Hope this helps,
