[EP-tech] Mailing list problems

Hi all,

My colleagues and I have been sorting out some issues with mail getting 
stuck on the mailing list application server.  My colleague thinks this 
is now fixed this with some hacking around to get a working version of 
YP (NIS) [1] running on this server. The whole problem is due to the 
mailing list application server relying on legacy servers that are 
gradually being retired. However, the pile of spaghetti that is the 
interdependencies between these servers means that there have been two 
or three situations recently where mailing list email has been delayed 
for several days.  Hopefully, this should not happen again.
