Public Mailing Lists

Public mailing lists for Pegasus Mail users are run by the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. We offer our grateful thanks to Shane Merritt and the University administration for their help and generosity in making this extremely valuable resource available. Six lists are available: separate lists exist for Official Announcements and for issues related to the Windows version of Pegasus Mail, the MS-DOS version, the Macintosh version, and Mercury. The sixth list, the PMAIL list, receives all the mail sent to each of the first five, and may also contain postings that do not appear in the other five.

Pegasus Mail User's Group discussion list - PMAIL@listserv.ua.edu    This list generates an average of around 75 mail messages every day and has over two thousand subscribers from all around the world. It is the principal place where announcements are made about new versions, fixes, changes and updates and is an excellent source of technical support. This list is also available for browsing and searching at the University of Alabama's Searchable Mailing List Archive. To subscribe to the list, send a message to listserv@listserv.ua.edu with a single-line message body, SUBSCRIBE PMAIL <firstname> <lastname>

Example: Your name is Joe Bloggs; you would send
     SUBSCRIBE PMAIL Joe Bloggs

You can unsubscribe from the list at any time by sending a message containing the single line:

UNSUBSCRIBE PMAIL

to the same address.

For further information, you can send the message body "HELP" to the listserv, and it will return instructions to you.

To send mail to the list, address it to pmail@listserv.ua.edu. You must be a subscriber before you can post anything to this list. REMEMBER!! Subscription and Unsubscription requests must be sent to go to LISTSERV, not to PMAIL!!

Pegasus Mail Announcements list - PM-NEWS@listserv.ua.edu.  If you wish to receive ONLY official release announcements and moderated information about the Pegasus Mail system, you should consider subscribing to the PM-NEWS list, using the same sequence of steps outlined above. Once again, remember that your subscription message should be sent to LISTSERV, not to PM-NEWS. You cannot mail to the PM-NEWS list directly - any mail you send to it will be referred to the list moderators for action. In general, the volume of mail on the PM-NEWS list is only one or two messages a month.

Subsidiary lists

There are also a number of mailing lists operated at the same location which serve specific versions of Pegasus Mail. Mail to these lists is also sent on to the main PMAIL list, so if you are subscribed to PMAIL@UA1VM.UA.EDU then you don't need to subscribe to these lists. Mail volume on these lists is usually markedly lower than on the full PMAIL list, which can get very busy.

Pegasus Mail for Windows discussion list - PM-WIN@listserv.ua.edu.   This list hosts discussions on Pegasus Mail for Windows. Any mail sent to this list is also forwarded automatically to the main PMAIL list, but not vice-versa. If you are only interested in the Windows version, then this is the list for you. Subscribe by sending a message with the body set to

SUBSCRIBE PM-WIN Firstname Lastname

to the address listserv@listserv.ua.edu.

Pegasus Mail for DOS discussion list - PM-DOS@listserv.ua.edu    This list hosts discussions on Pegasus Mail for DOS. Any mail sent to this list is also forwarded automatically to the main PMAIL list, but not vice-versa. If you are only interested in the DOS version, then this is the list for you. Subscribe by sending a message with the body set to:

SUBSCRIBE PM-DOS Firstname Lastname

to the address listserv@listserv.ua.edu.

Pegasus Mail for Macintosh discussion list - PM-MAC@listserv.ua.edu    This list hosts discussions on Pegasus Mail for the Mac. Any mail sent to this list is also forwarded automatically to the main PMAIL list, but not vice-versa. If you are only interested in the Macintosh version, then this is the list for you. Subscribe by sending a message with the body set to:

SUBSCRIBE PM-MAC Firstname Lastname

to the address listserv@listserv.ua.edu.

Mercury discussion list - MERCURY@listserv.ua.edu     This list hosts discussions on the Mercury Mail Transport System. Any mail sent to this list is also forwarded automatically to the main PMAIL list, but not vice-versa. If you are only interested in Mercury (either NLM or Win32 version), then this is the list for you. Subscribe by sending a message with the body set to:

SUBSCRIBE MERCURY Firstname Lastname

to the address listserv@listserv.ua.edu.
