Although I have not heard of a newbie Circle mailing list, I do have two
constructive comments to make:

1.  With the help of George and Claywar/Faras, I am working on making a
RP-Mud mailing list for discussing more advanced and theoretical mud design

2.  I don't know what program this list uses, but in the AD&D listserv,
people are required (by the moderator) to begin their posts with one of
five or so keywords.  People subscribed to the list can set options,
similar to digest or nomail, that cause the listserv to not send them any
mail under that category.
An AD&D example: [ADND-L] Rules: Stoneskin
A Circle example:  Newbie: How do I...
or:  Code, Snippet: How to make rats explode using 4 lines of code
