Here is a recipe that will simplify the process of setting up a new list. Any word in capitals, like LIST or PASSWORD, should be replaced with the appropriate name.
Anyone planning to start a number of new lists can avoid taking these steps for every list by configuring the DEFAULT mailing list.
Any line beginning with a "#" is a comment and will be ignored by majordomo.
All majordomo commands should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more details, see the New List Configuration page.
