You could write a script that returns further instructions on how to
subscribe to each list (and informing folks of the upgrade to Mailman).

  majordomo: | /usr/local/mailman/md-reply.sh

#! /bin/bash
### md-reply.sh - a script to reply to old majordomo requests
TO=`grep "From:" - |head -1 |cut -f2- -d: `
cat /usr/local/mailman/md-reply.txt |mail -s "Mailing List Help" $TO

You could expand the script to actually look for the "subscribe" command
and then attempt to subscribe the user...

BTW: you might want to use a procmail script instead, but this is a good
base for a lot of other mail oriented command sequences that you may
want to play with (in the future).

Have fun - Jon Carnes
