[1/17/94: version 1.20 of Mercury has been released, including a new version
of MAISER.  According to its author, notable new features in MAISER 1.20
include MIME-format digests, message archiving, and full anonymous mailing.]

David Harris, who writes Pegasus Mail, the great DOS/Windows/Mac mail system,
also writes the Mercury MTA for NetWare servers.  Mercury includes a simple
but functional MLM, "MAISER."  MAISER supports subscribe, unsubscribe, and
review commands for lists (which can be moderated or not, closed or not, with
posting restricted to list members or not), as well as file-archive index and
get commands.  It also supports a finger command to help track down users on
the server's Pegasus Mail system.  MAISER is *not* meant to be a high-end
system, but if you want to run a small MLM and already have a NetWare server
on the Internet, you may like it.

Both Pegasus and Mercury are free software, but they are distributed as
executables only.  David makes his money selling manuals, though decent
on-line documentation is included with everything he distributes.

Get Pegasus and Mercury at <ftp://risc.ua.edu/pub/network/pegasus/>.

The discussion list for both packages is PMAIL@UA1VM.UA.EDU; subscribe by
sending "subscribe PMAIL Your Name" in the body of a message to
LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU.
