                       ListManager Release 3
                       =====================


ListManager is a mailing list tool for the Universal Message System
(UMS). It does not only easy handling of subscribed mailing lists
(client mode) but also can serve them (server mode). In both cases
ListManager works as an news-mail gateway, too.

In client mode ListManager sorts mails from incoming mailing lists
into local newsgroups (import mode) or sends posting in this
newsgroups to the corresponding mailinglist (export mode).

In server mode - well - ListManager serves mailing lists. In this case
it sends all messages received to the subscribers of the mailing
list, too. Messages are forwarded both from the lists mail account
and the newsgroup corresponding to the mailing list.


ListManager Release 3 is a complete re-write of ListManager.rexx, the
well know UMS-tool.  The re-write has been performed in Oberon-2 to
ensure further maintainability, since ListManager.rexx has grown to
complex for a ARexx-script.

IMPORTANT: Some config stuff has been changed, see below for more
           information!

ListManager Release 3 should work the same way as ListManager.rexx
did, with some enhancements:

- Help and descriptions are now sent as seperate mails.
- should run much faster
- Some variables are now parsed via ReadArgs(), see below.

- Access for (un)subcribtion is now checked via UMSMatchPattern(), so
  you can use UMS' mulit-line patterns here. The format of the string
  to be tested has been changed, too (see below).
- ListManager locks ListManager.Mailinglists so act like a semaphore.
- please have a look at ListManager.todo for the topics still open
  for this version.
- group prefix for client mode may be defined in
  ListManager.GroupPrefix
- ListManger.Server may contain several aliases, see the docs for
  details
- all messages send by Listmanager will be put into specific folders

! Some configuration stuff has been changed to ease usage. Thus you
! MUST addapt your configuration! UpdateLMConfig.rexx helps you on
! this task. Option Test/S will show you the changed to be done,
! without actually performing them.

- The config variables Listmanager.Owner and ListManager.<list>.Owner
  have been renamed to Listmanager.Admin and
  ListManager.<list>.Admins.

- The following config variables are now parsed via ReadArgs():
  ListManager.Mailinglist
  ListManager.<list>.Status
  ListManager.<list>.Users
  ListManager.<list>.Admin  (was ListManager.<list>.Owner)
  UpdateLMConfig will update your configuration automatically.

- ListManger.Access is now tested with 'name <addr>' (without
  quotes), so you have to change you pattern. This is a non-trivial
  task for a programm, thus UpdateLMConfig does not even try this
  convertion.


Changes since V 3.26
- fixed: some bugs in case NoDeamonAccount
