List-Serv Mail Server

We are looking to add a mail list (list server) to our district in order to save on costs with mailing newsletters and what not. After looking over open and closed source projects we decided to go with list-serv light, the light version was more than enough to support our needs.

Installation was very easy, with the use of their user manual found here:

Also this is a good manual for moderator’s administrators as well":

If you know all of your ip addresses for your mail server and have an idea of how your network setup is a snap. The only issue that I ran into was the “wa.exe” script that is used to run the whole listserv. To save you some time, what you need to do is open the httpd.conf (in the bin directory within the apache folder) and find the line that has “#AddHandler cgi-script .cgi”. This line is commented out (#) delete the # sign and this will add the cgi support which is needed to run the list serv.

Other then the issue with the CGI script, the install was pretty easy.

Any questions feel free to email me:

Till next time
