This variable presents a set of checkboxes which control the defaults for some of the member options. Conceal the member's address specifies whether or not the address is displayed in the list roster. Acknowledge the member's posting controls whether or not Mailman sends an acknowledgement to a member when they post a message to the list. Do not send a copy of a member's own post specifies whether a member posting to the list will get a copy of their own posting. Filter out duplicate messages to list members (if possible) specifies whether members who are explicitly listed as a recipient of a message (e.g. via the Cc: header) will also get a copy from Mailman.
Of course, members can always override these defaults by making changes on their membership options page.
