As a newbie who has eventually got things up and running very nicely:
I'd suggest a "step by step" approach to the example aliases:
1. Set up a "simple" list (no archive, no digest)
2. Set up an archive of that "simple" list (no digest)
3. Set up a digest of the "simple" list
For each new step, include the previous steps !!! This way you can see the new
additions in context !!
I found that I'd successfully got the simple list and the archive parts
correct, but I followed the documentation too closely for the digest and
screwed things up. When I stepped back and got a bit creative, I got things
But....now I have a proliferation of folders that probably are not necessary.
I'm sure that ths proliferation is unnecessary but it's easier to deal witrh
them that to risk bringing the house of cards down again...:-)
....it must be possible for one of you master perl hackers to come up with a
"create a mailing list" script that automates the setup ?
now i use copy & paste, but a script would be sweet....
