[Mailman-Users] Announcement\ Digest options

Can you give me examples of the command-line commands to keep the lists in
sync or direct me to where I can find that information.

Also when you say a parallel list, I am assuming that I establish another
mailing list which is just used for blasting. Is there no way to turn on and
off this feature within mailman?

Set the list up as Digest only, then run a parallel list that you can simply
blast to.  You can use the command-line commands to keep the lists in sync
with each other.

You can also use the command-line tools to simply dump out a text file with
all the email addresses and then send you blast directly using the emails in
that file.

I think the Beta has a feature that works for doing this.  Alas the current
production does not.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
