If you have them send their mail to:
firstname.lastname@example.org (or whatever)
they will subscribe directly to the list. For example, I have a military literature discussion list here at the Academy. I have two different config files - one is military-lit-digest.config and one is military-lit.config. Duplicate files for everything, with just the -digest added. Has its own directory under digests, etc. That way, users can subscribe to this list by sending mail to:
or to the digest by sending mail to
or to either one by sending mail to email@example.com
subscribe military-lit-digest firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope that helps!
