Hello Timo!

Deliver is also broken with 1.0rc10 (I didn't try 1.0rc11 yet)
It also needs the mail_location set, default_mail_env doesn't work.
Must be fixed in 1.0rc12, too.

I wondered why I didn't get any mails in my mailinglist folders. They were 
stored in ~ and no in the specified directory :-(
