Yes, ftpmail does queueing, splitting, encoding, etc. It's great for
people who have a slow (or no) Net connection. It also gets through
firewalls where FTP might not.

It's pretty painless to set up. But I don't think you don't really
need to set up ftpmail for testing MD: just set the ftpmail server
address to be your own personal mailbox... then check the messages that
Majordomo sends and see that they're valid ftpmail syntax. There are
at least two different flavors of ftpmail, anyway (the one at decwrl,
and the freely-available version from Lee McLoughlin that O'Reilly's
MIIS book covers), so I'm not sure that testing just one version would
be the best thing?
