This document contains the information which should be reviewed prior to installing and using ezmlm-idx

This is an addition and patch to ezmlm-0.53 [(c) Dan J. Bernstein]. Ezmlm-idx uses only Dan's libraries and heavily relies on ezmlm-0.53 code. ezmlm-idx does not function without ezmlm-0.53.

ezmlm-0.53 provides basic message distribution, subscriber address handling, message archiving (single quoted message retrieval only), and bounce handling. ezmlm-idx adds multi-message threaded archive retrieval, digests, remote administration, message and subscription moderation, subscriber-only restrictions, message trailer, subject prefix, subscriber name storage, customizable setup, multi-language and MIME support and more. In addition, improved bounce handling, case-insensitive subscriber address storage, and support for distributed lists (main + sublist transparent to the subscriber). In addition, ezmlm-idx can now be compiled with MySQL support for centrally administrated distributed lists with binaries that autosense use of SQL or standard ezmlm databases.

NEWS

The major improvements in ezmlm-idx-0.32 are support for user transparent sublisting and SQL database support including support for monitored and dynamically reconfigurable sublisting. Bounce handling is also optimized to work with very large lists. SQL-enabled lists appear to scale well even beyond 500,000 subscribers. ezmlm-idx-0.321 is a bug-fix of 0.32 (see CHANGES.idx).
