you can simple write a cron that sends mail to your list announcing the
birthdays or whatever, but, as Paul Byerly says you can do a script for that
purpose. It will be more usefull for sure.

      Mail man is open source, so you can add anything you like - if you 
know how.  I've been playing with this a bit - I was going to use the edit 
html pages to make it easy for list managers, but so far I've not cracked 
it.  Another option, probably a better one, would be to set up a PHP 
calender program and add links to it on some of the admin 
pages.  Unfortunately learning PHP is still on my to do list.
