                                Listserv Lists
                                       
   From: Roger Burns <cfs-news@cais.cais.com>
   
   The most widely used mailing list software is Revised Listserv,
   developed by Eric Thomas of L-Soft. Over 200 sites run Listserv
   mailing list software at no charge to the list-owners, and many may be
   willing to sponsor a list for you if your proposed topic strikes their
   interest.
   
   To find a Listserv sponsor, write up a draft proposal which describes
   the list you'd like to create and mail it to LSTSRV-L@SEARN.SUNET.SE.
   Mention in your message that you don't usually follow those discussion
   groups, so could responses please be mailed to your private address.
   Please only submit your proposal once. If someone is willing to host
   your list, then you will hear back from him or her. Repeated proposals
   for the same topic are only likely to annoy the readers of the list
   and may make them less likely to want to take on new lists. For more
   detailed advice on this process, send the command GET NEW-LIST CREATE
   as an e-mail message to the address LISTSERV@VM1.NODAK.EDU.
   
   For general documents explaining Listserv, send the following commands
   in the body of a message to LISTSERV@SEARN.SUNET.SE:
   
   GET LISTPRES MEMO
   GET LISTSERV REFCARD
   GET LISTSERV MEMO
   
   For documents about running Listserv lists, send the following
   commands to that same address:
   
   GET LISTOWNR MEMO
   GET LISTOWNR REFCARD
   GET LISTSERV TIPS
   GET LISTKEYW MEMO

greenspun.com

   Software: SPAM<TM> an RDBMS-backed Web System
   Status: No Fee Service
   
   A service intended for Web publishers who wish to collect names,
   addresses, and demographic information from readers without the hassle
   of maintaining a relational database themselves. It is not a mailing
   list in the Listserv sense. You, the administrator, are the only
   person who can send mail to the list. Users receive mail that appears
   to have come directly from you. If they reply, it is directly to the
   email address that you specify. Most typically, this service is used
   by Web publishers to apprise readers of new documents. However, via
   Web forms, you can configure SPAM to collect custom information and to
   deliver custom confirmation pages. For example, you could easily use
   the system to collect names of users who register to try out demo
   software and then deliver them a page with downloading instructions.

   upgraded three times since inception and a new version is in the
   works. The service is FREE and we actively FIGHT SPAM. We also host
   lists that we are archiving, and have a dedicated Sun running

   Software: cAML
   Status: for-fee provider
   
   The Carnell Automated Mailing List (or cAML) is an enhancement to any
   web site that offers content that is constantly being updated, like an
   electronic magazine or technical documentation. Visitors to your web
   site fill out a quick and easy form to add themselves to the list.
   From then on, you have easy access to that list. More importantly, the
   list has a built-in utility for sending personalized messages to each
   member, and giving him his private ID (for use in changing his profile
   or removing himself altogether). This frees you from the task of
   relying on external email list servers to monitor the Internet for
   incoming signal messages. When you want to find out who's on your list
   or send mail to everyone, you simply make your way to a special page
   on our site that gives you complete control of your list. In addition,
   cAML software upgrades are automatic and free. cAML is a very low cost
   service. At $5.00 (US) per month (no size limits), we're making cAML
   the best and most popular way to maintain a mailing list.

   Our prices for international services are quoted in Canadian Dollars
   but we can bill in any currency that is freely exchanged by Canadian
   banks. In practice this means that you can pay either in Canadian or

   Stirling. We accept VISA. If VISA is used to settle payment then the
   charge is made in Canadian Dollars and the issuing bank determines the

   Since 1995, Listbox has been providing mailing lists using Majordomo,
   the most popular list management software in existence today.
   Listowners from beginners to experts enjoy Listbox's free custom web
   interface that makes list management a snap. We have custom extensions
   built on top of the basic majordomo package: listowners can forbid
   certain individuals from posting, or even kill outright any messages
   that contain forbidden words. Dedicated email customer support,
   separate digests, and list archiving facilities are included free with
   each list.
   
   We serve hundreds of lists, ranging in size from three subscribers to
   eleven thousand. Making millions of message deliveries every month, we
   still manage to boast some of the fastest delivery times in the
   business -- your messages will reach 95% of your subscriber list
   within 60 seconds. To find out more about Listbox, we invite you to
   check out our website at www.listbox.com, or contact us directly at

   their own mailing list via e-mail commands. You can have either a
   public or private mailing list. The most important aspect of such a
   list is that it is virtually automatic and requires little of your
   valuable time. We can provide broadcast e-mail, auto-responders and
