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 _________________________________________________________________ No-fee Providers Coollist Email Contact: admin@coollist.com Web Contact: http://www.coollist.com/ Software: ?

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.
