Re: A list administation query
I don't know the answer to your question, but a feature I'd like for mailing
lists to have in general would be "send only subscriptions".
I think anyone can post to debian-user (not sure), but many lists only allow
subscribers to post, in an effort to keep out spam. What I'd like to do is
subscribe in such a way that I can post but not recieve the list in email.
Instead, I would read the list off a web archive.
Even if I were able to filter out all my spam, I subscribe to so many mailing
lists (over fifty), that I get about 30,000 legitimate emails a month. I have
to read my mail with elm, as that's the only mail reader I've been able to find
that can handle my collosal inbox.
That would be OK if I read every list post, but I only select a few to read from
any given list, based on the message subject. It's a waste that I receive all
the other messages that I don't read.
Happy New Year!
