whether or not your site restricts access to this option to users

users to hold the XMNET security key and you don't hold that key,
you won't be able to use this option.

MailMan gives you two possible entries for this field:
* No Local Delivery (default) - If you have a FORWARDING ADDRESS and you
do not want your messages delivered locally, set the LOCAL DELIVERY
FLAG field to 'Off' (i.e., '0'). Your messages will only be delivered
to your remote addresses.
* Local Delivery On - If you have a FORWARDING ADDRESS and you want your
messages delivered locally as well as remotely, set the LOCAL DELIVERY
FLAG field to 'On' (i.e., '1'). Your messages will be delivered to
both your local and remote addresses.
Also, if you've set the LOCAL DELIVERY FLAG field to continue to receive
mail locally, you may want to choose another MailMan user to act as your
