where ‘me’ is your user name and ‘host’ the host your list is on.
Now, you are the owner, remote administrator, and subscriber of both ‘list@host’ and the accompanying digest list ‘list-digest@host’. Only subscribers are allowed to access the archive and to post. To post to the list, mail to ‘list@host’. For a user to subscribe, s/he should mail to ‘list-subscribe@host’ and for help to ‘list-help@host’.
When a non-subscriber posts, you will be asked to approve, reject, or ignore the request. If you want to subscriber ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, mail ‘list-subscribe-joe=joehost.dom@host’.
Digests are generated about every two days, when 30 messages have arrived since the last digest, or when more than 64 kbytes of message body has arrived. To manage the digest list, use the same commands as the main list, but replace ‘list’ with ‘list-digest’.
The sender restriction on posting used in this setup works, but is not secure. For more info, read the man pages (start with ezmlm(5) and ezmlm-make(1)), this FAQ (FAQ in the distribution), README, INSTALL, and UPGRADE.
