Peti's Amiga ListSERV
Written by Peter Simons <simons@peti.GUN.de>.
ListSERV is a software package to handle and maintain mailing
lists, based on the well-known UNIX LISTSERV tool. With this
daemon, users can easily subscribe or unsubscribe mailing lists,
requests the frequently asked questions (FAQ) or index all mailing
lists available on the machine.
The archive contains all programs required to set a mailing
list up plus a brief description in AmigaGuide and TexInfo style.
Full source and RCS files are provided, too.
- ListSERV's important parts are written in ARexx and thus can be
modified to fit your special requirements.
- ListSERV may add a signature to any article posted to the list.
Each mailing list may have its own signature, so you can state
vital information there.
- ListSERV automatically sets the "Reply-To:" entry in the mail
header to the list's address. Therefore, replies to articles
delivered via the list will be sent back to the list again. Users
can simply reply.

using the Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) package. You can set up
confidential mailing lists that can be used for development of
