> Greetings, Team Ada subscribers -

> There is really not that much involved in administering the
> list. In the early days it took a lot of time, but due to
> reduced traffic and better management tools, management now
> mainly consists of deleting filtered spam, approving valid
> postings by non-subscribers, and tracking down an occasional
> bad subscription. List management is mostly automated and
> these tasks take only a few minutes per day. Although there
> is a web interface, management is most convenient when done
> from a POP3 or IMAP mailer (e.g., Mozilla Thunderbird).
> The Team Ada list was started in late 1993 by Dave Weller and

> managing the list for over a year from his ccMail connection,
> Brad gave me the controls. At its peak we had just under 400
