Major Major mailing list

eComStationNews.com - Sun, 20140629 - 20:56 -0600

Version 1.68 of Major Major is now available from
or from
or from Hobbes incoming.

Major Major is a mailing list manager, that lets you create and manage
multiple e-mail discussion lists.

(It is not spamming software, because it allows list members to
unsubscribe. In any case, we retain the right to take retaliatory
measures against anyone who uses it to send unwanted mail.)

The latest version has two significant changes.

1. The ability to break up outgoing mail into small batches, each for a
subset of list members, to deal with deal with mail servers that do not
respect the RFC rules about number of mail recipients. Making the batch
limit small is inefficient, and creates a higher load on mail servers,
but might be needed to deal with hostile servers.

2. An option for DMARC compatibility. DMARC is a "standard" implemented
by spammer-friendly mail providers such as AOL and Yahoo, which has the
side-effect of making life difficult for mailing lists. You might need
this option for lists whose members are unable to receive list mail.
