I am in a bind and need help. A uses tried the "set <listname> unique
<email> and it seemed to stop the duplicates. Now upper management wants to
know if it can be used by all members. BUT (there is always a BUT..) they
need to know about the following and I cant seem to figure it out...
1.) after the user issues the command, where is it stored? ( I have
searched and searched but can not locate where it was recorded in a file so
it will still be in effect after the reboot)
2.) Is the behavior different if the command is issued by the list owner
instead of just a user?
3.) When the message is received at the user, can they tell what other lists
it was posted in and then post to the same group where the multiple postings
4.) If the owner of the list changes, does this effect the unique setting?
5.) Where in the code is this defined and how does it work???? If I know
where this is recorded, I might be able to do it automatically for all of
Sorry about the long question, it is just that I have been working on this
for a couple of days and have to give the answer Monday morning. (CST USA).
Thanks in advance for any help.
“set <listname> unique <e-mail address”
What does it do?
What program uses it?
Where is it stored?
Is it persistent?
How do you turn it off?
Who can issue the command? Owner/subscriber?
What lists does it affect? Owned? Subscribed?
Would it apply to new lists? ( created or joined?)
Who does it apply to? (all users, new users, old users)?
Does it have to be issued for each list?
