Mlmgr creates and updates unmoderated mailing lists. The –c option
creates mail directories for both listname and listname–owner,
each containing a pipeto file. Messages mailed to listname are
sent to all members of the mailing list. Any Reply–to: and Precedence:
fields are removed from the messages
and new ones are added directing replies to listname and specifying
bulk precedence. The envelope address for error replies is set
to /dev/null. |
The mailing list membership is the file /mail/box/listname/address–list. This file is an add/remove log. Each line represents a single address. Lines beginning with a hash (#) are comments. Lines beginning with an exclamation point (!) are removals. All other lines are additions.
Addition and removal entries can be appended using the –a and –r options to mlmgr. However, they are normally appended as a consequence of user requests.
To be added or removed from the list, a user may send a message
to listname–owner containing a key word in the header or body.
The key words are:
Ml and mlowner are the programs that receive messages for listname and listname–owner respectively. Appropriate calls to them are inserted in the pipeto files created by mlmgr.
