Use wcListServer to create and administer your own Internet e-mail distribution lists and extend your Wildcat! Interactive Net Server community to e-mail users worldwide.

Messaging on the Internet via e-mail and Newsgroups is a very powerful way to communicate, but it does have some drawbacks. E-mail is private one-to-one messaging so it’s not very good at building a community. Newsgroups are wide-open to anyone on the ‘Net, but they also tend to attract a large number of off-topic messages and it can be difficult and time consuming to wade through all the chaff to participate in a focused discussion.

E-mail list servers combine the best aspects of both. E-mail messages addressed to a list server are distributed to the entire list of list subscribers as e-mail, so it’s perfect for building a community of people to discuss a specific topic. They are also ideal for distributing product update and technical support information to a list of your customers. You could even create a list containing all your relatives with e-mail addresses to provide an inexpensive way for family members to communicate with each other.

Now, with wcListServer you have a powerful and inexpensive tool to create and administer your own Internet e-mail distribution lists. Each list resides on your Wildcat! Interactive Net Server as a message conference, so your users can communicate with list subscribers through the Wildcat! Interactive Net Server interface. And list subscribers can communicate with your users and each other without ever having to log into your Wildcat! Interactive Net Server directly.

wcListServer works with the Wildcat! Interactive Net Server’s built-in SMTP server for those with full-time Internet connections, or via UUCP for system administrators who would rather batch transfer their e-mail and Newsgroups. In SMTP mode, messages are addressed to blocks of 100 list subscribers for best performance and fastest delivery.
