My Name is Chris Wayne. I am an RSA of a small, county government
machine. It is my wish to start a listserv of some sort (at least until the
county decides to install WWW). I've been on this list a couple of weeks now,
but I haven't seen any really useful info. I have no USENET access and I've
seen mention of ftp.greatcircle.com, but we're a poor site, my machine can't
handle domain name resolution - just IP numbers :-).
What I think I'm picking up from this list, is that there are several
different types of listservers out there, but the most common is MajorDomo.
I can't say that I know all there is to know about listservers, except that
they are used to maintain maillists and a way to retrieve files. I am looking
for a listserver that at least does both. If there are other functions of a
listserver, I'd be interested to hear about them.
I run a SysV operating system, so I would need to know where I can get a
listserver for my machine. If you do reply to me, please Email me at:
email@example.com. Please note that addresses coming in and going out
to/from this site get mangled. You can't rely on auto-reply and you'll need to
include your address in your letter or I won't know who you are. I got one of
our system programers working on fixing the problem. He's been telling me
that he'll have it fixed soon, it's been several weeks now :-S
