I can't answer this, but if you do this I would HIGHLY recommend using
sendmail 8.5 (or whatever the latest rev. is) since it handles huge,
huge, huge volumes of mail much better than the stock sendmail that
most Unix's have. You might also consider replacing /bin/mail
with one of the many replacements (procmail is my favorite, but
I haven't tried many)

The one thing that majordomo REALLY needs is a Perl script that
will check permissions on all the files. In $listdir, everything
must be group majordom. The owner should be daemon if majordomo
will be editing the file, otherwise "majordom" should own it.
Then make sure that the directory is "chmod g+s" and all the
files are "chmod 664".

You can have one big archive as the examples have (remember to
touch the file, chmod 664, chown majordom, chgrp majordom).
However, there is no "index" and "get" service like Listserv
has. I believe someone has written something similar.

The latest version of sendmail does.
