In version 1.0.1.0, the first posted to news.answers, I depended heavily on
the kindness of the various MLMs' authors.  Without their annotations and
corrections it would have been a misleading document.  Two people who were
*very* patient with me were Eric Thomas (author of LISTSERV) and Stephen van
den Berg (author of SmartList).  Especially Stephen :-).  Also, David Barr,
author of the Majordomo FAQ, is the man who suggested I turn this document
into a FAQ in the first place -- I originally intended for it to be just a
few paragraphs in his document, and somehow it ballooned ...

In version 1.1, most changes I made were to correct errors that various
people spotted and pointed out to me.  Specifically:

Bob Bagwill <bagwill@sst.ncsl.nist.gov> pointed out that SmartList's remote
administration by mail requires placement of commands in the message header.

Brent Chapman <Brent@GreatCircle.Com> corrected my misapprehension that he
was the author of Majordomo's link to ftpmail :-) while kindly taking the
time to read over the FAQ as a sort of historical consultant.

Michelle Dick <artemis@netcom.com> has written several messages that changed
my *view* of some issues (this goes back to the first version) -- so I can't
quite point to which section she changed, but her influence is in there.

Joe Sparrow <jsparrow@uwm.uvic.ca> was the first to point out to me that my
discussion of MTA's and MUA's under VM was incorrect, and to give me a clear
view of what the situation really is.

David W. Tamkin <dattier@wwa.com> caught my use of "priority" when I meant
"precedence."

Windigo the Feral <windigo@thepoint.com> sent a very nice description of a
particular type of built-in mailing list support, in DG/UX Sendmail.

Needless to say, I am responsible for all errors that remain.
