We use majordomo with smail-3.1.29 on our SCO systems with various
flavours of perl (4.036, 5.001m, and 5.002) with good results. Here
is a typical set of aliases for a list. Note that the test-list-outxxxx
alias refers to itself as the first alias so that smail-3.? uses its
own list processing using the file in /usr/local/lib/smail/lists
which is a symlink to the /usr/local/lib/mail/lists entry
ln -s /usr/local/lib/mail/lists/test-list \
We process about 20,000 mail messages/day through our main server
which is a Pentium 90 that also handles multiple full news feeds over
a T1 so performance is adequate.
Note that we also alias test-list-request to majordomo rather than
send it to the normal requests script on the hope that if people get
the request right it will do the right thing otherwise it will send
them help info.
