OK. I've created 2 discussion lists, but I had to alter my original names for them. In the first, I had a hyphen (e.g., fred-talk). The list wouldn't create until I took the hyphen out.
OK, makes sense, I guess. But then I tried to create another discussion list with a number in it (e.g., den3). That wouldn't work either until I took the number out of the name.
So my question is, am I right in guessing here that some characters are not allowed in the name when you create a discussion list? If so, should I add that note to the support wiki?
