will deliver an email to everyone on a list. It validates email
addresses and domains. However you still need a database to maintain
the email addresses. I do this for my customers using DOS-Abundance
applications. This might the sort of thing that Access is useful for.

This might well do it -- I'll check it out. Thanks!
By the way, I called up L-Soft (the Listserv people), and thought
I could use their product (even though it's not Java)... they have
this weird pricing structure, where you "rent" the product for
$650/year, or buy it for $5300! Ridiculous!

I just read the documentation, but it's not quite what I need.
See my next posting...

What I need is this:

1. Java-based product

2. Product runs as a server

3. Uses *Web Based* client

4. Can use ANY database that's JDBC-compliant to keep the
mailing list (and maintainer can determine format of
database -- Java source will be available for modification
so fields the list server product doesn't need are ignored).

Anything out there like that? Basically, a java-based server product
that's an email-list management web application.

For those kind of "rents" I could easily custom write you the whole
thing.

You want a database. End users can modify their own records.

What information do you keep? Just the fact they are on the email
list? This might be handled with a web transaction with an email
confirmation.
You also probably want the ability to get off the list via email
transaction as well.

Have you done a google on ListServ?

Yeah, I've done a million google searches with varying parameters.
Lots of listserv software packages, not much in the way of Java & server-based
ones with web-interfaces and your own database... you know, a typical
java server based solution.
