Posts about sendmail would go on the sendmail list, postfix on that list. Exim 
has a list, everyone has a list. The DKIM thread went out of control when 
anger and hurt feelings came into play. It started OK with opinions on whether 
DKIM is necessary or not, and crashed and burned soon after.

If the message said something like, "I'm having trouble installing dkim-milter 
on CentOS", that would be answered after some requests for information.

When you ask opinions on a mailing list, you will probably get a different one 
with every response.

If you are having mail issues, it is mostly related to your MTA and would go 
on their list. If you are using a binding software like Mailscanner or Amavis, 
you would start on their list.

If you want one place to get all your answers, you will probably have to pay 
for a support contract somewhere.

A list just for mail issues would still probably get ignored because there 
will be many less members. The ones that would join would be the people in 
trouble. It will look like the Ubuntu lists... many unanswered pleas for help, 
or answers from others that hacked their way through it and now think they are 

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
