       ml, mlmgr, mlowner -  unmoderated mailing lists

       upas/mlmgr -c listname

       upas/ml [ -r replyto-address ] addressfile listname

       upas/mlowner addressfile listname

       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 beginā€
       ning with an exclamation point (!)  are removals.  All other lines  are

       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:

	      subscribe - add my From: address to the list

	      remove - remove my From: address from the list

	      unsubscribe - remove my From: address from the list

       Addition	 and  removal events cause notification messages to be sent to
       the added/removed address.   In	the  case  of  addition,  the  message
       describes how to be removed.

       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.

       Ml's -r option sets the Reply-to: field in the mail sent out by ml.
