Send a message to listproc at samba.anu.edu.au with the body of 

set samba mail ack

and you will get all mail to the list seperately.

If you mail the above address with the body of 'help set' you will get
the following.

Syntax: set <list> [<option> <arg[s]>]
	Without the optional arguments, get a list of all current settings for
	the specified list. Otherwise change the option to the new value for
	that list, as follows:

        option can be: mail, password, address, conceal
        arg for mail can be: ack, noack, postpone, digest
	args for password have to be: current-password new-password
	args for address have to be: current-password new-address
	args for conceal can be: yes, no

        'set <list>': get the current option settings for the list
        'set <list> mail ack': your message is sent back to you
        'set <list> mail noack': your message is not sent back to you
        'set <list> mail postpone': no messages will be sent to you until you
                change mode again
	'set <list> mail digest': your message is not sent back to you.
		New messages are not sent to you as they arrive, but are
		accumulated into digests that are periodically sent to you.
	'set <list> password <current-password> <new-password>': change your
		password for live access to the system (i.e. for subscriber
		access privileges when telneting to the system).
	'set <list> address <current-password> <new-address>: change the address
		you are subscribed with; may not be available on all lists.
	'set <list> conceal yes': remove yourself from 'recipients' and
		'statistics' listings.
	'set <list> conceal no': opposite of previous mode.
