Hi Omar and Ian,
Thanks for the pointers. Can either of you give me the specifics?
I'm new to Perl and in spite of having read all those nifty instructions
in the config file and list owners file, I haven't the foggiest how to
hack, smack, or thwack whatever. I did try hammering the screen with
figs, but nothing happens except that it gets sticky and I have to wipe it
off. My ISP guy agreed to hack out the Welcome, but he just moved to a
new office, so I can't reasonably expect him to coddle me through my
learning curve until a month or so. How about you guys? Pretty please?
You can join my list if you do.
Meanwhile I have configged welcome to no, and instructed new users to
send a separate intro command after they subscribe, in order to get the
intro file that I wrote for them. A brilliant temporary solution on my
part, but ultimately unwieldly for my subscribers, who are touchy-feely
