Send subscription requests to <email@example.com>, and
posts to <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The addresses are ready now; the list will be running tonight.
No, it's not that I'm trying to usurp you; it's just that I need such a
list for my own list-owner clients.
As far as documentation is concerned, you've already seen me recommend
Managing Mailing Lists and Managing Internet Information Services, both
published by O'Reilly.
One more thing, do you expect me to let everyone see my support pages, or
just people who buy list-services from me <smile>?

I'm currently working on a draft of "Running eMail Lists"; it might end up
a Dummies book or similar, depending on publisher interest. Unfortunately,
though, it's aimed at Windows users, and written around a copy of Mailtraq
<www.mailtraqna.com> (for Windows) that will most likely be included with
the book. Reason: I'm the western-hemisphere distributor for Mailtraq; I
need all the publicity I can get <smile>. Maybe I should write one for
Majordomo as well???
