[EdLUG] Hello from a lurker and why is the list configured this way?

We did in the past have the archive created by Monharc (sp?) which did an infinitely better job of munging addresses
than pipermail, using local_part at as the address in the mail headers. Sadly the person who configured the set
up doesn't have much to do with edlug anymore and the few of us who have put eyes onto the code struggled to make it
work. We think it's because Monharc expects the web server software and the mail server software to be on the same
machine. If anyone has experience of this or knows of another way of setting it up to work over two separate servers
we'd be grateful for the help.
