I definitely had it wrong. Here's what I should have said:
If you set the first pref (Mailing Lists for New Sites) to "No," then set the fourth (List Server) to the same value as the third (Default SMTP Server).
This is because Conversant needs to know where to send the messages. If a site is in "Multi-Subscriber" mode, then you want it to send the messages to the subscribers directly... however, it will always try to send them through the list server. So, for the list server you just give it the value of the SMTP server.
You hve to remember that this is just the default for new sites. Once a new site has been set up, it has its own set of values... you may need to change them if you've decided to switch a site from Multi-Subscriber to Single Subscriber modes.
In that case, you'd go to this URL
(The long way: go to admin, click on conversations, click on David, click on preferences, click on "Email".)
Click on the "Outgoing Mail" tab. The values on that page control where mail is sent, and how. If you have any specific questions, let us know. As I said, I'm already working on docs.
