If you want to know the advantages of ListProc; you're probably on the
This is the Mailman mailinglist. Mailman is just another flavour of a
mailinglist manager; just as majordomo and listproc are. AFAIR ListProc is
commercial, where Majordomo and Mailman are under GNU/Public Domain.

All of these are Unix/Linux related mailinglist servers/programs... if you
want to run Mailman (or Listproc, or Majordomo) you most probably need a
computer running one of the many Unix falvours. And yes... it needs to be on

I personally don't think that your PC will wear out quicker because starting
up and getting at a normal temprature can be pretty hard on your components.
