A month ago, a majordomo list was set up for my college class. Majordomo
1.94.1 is on one of the college's computers.
I concluded that the subscription approval and confirmation processes would
pose a challenge to my esteemed classmates and a burden to me that
overwhelmed the risks of not having those safeguards. So those features
are not activated.
So far, so good. But the list of subscribers returned by the "who" command
is of dubious value because it contains only e-mail addresses and not
classmates' names. The creativity of many e-mail addresses often obscures
the relevant classmate's identity.
I assume that any automated way of including names on the "who" list would
complicate the subscription procedure. Therefore, my preference would be
to edit periodically the file that generates the reply to the "who"
command. My contact at the college either doesn't know about that or is
being a bit cagey. So my questions are:
1. Can that file be edited by a remotely located list owner; and
2. What is the identity of that file?
Thanks and regards,
