+1 to auto-discard after a period of time (I'm ok with >= 30 days; choose as you

aren't going to pay attention to the nagmails.

approved/discarded/rejected/etc by the mailing list admin w/i 2months then
tmpwatch it away?
it, ultimately, makes mailman run better.
As for the four or five lists that I run/co-run, I/we usually don't
even look into those held messages because that will take so much
