Hi, I have just started converting the lists I host from SmartList
to Minimalist. I'm running it all under Linux and have been very pleased
with the ease, speed and flexibility of Minimalist as compared to
SmartList and Majordomo.<br><br><i>Joe Klemmer</i>
<p><p>Incredible. Simple, powerful and reliable, this Minimalist keeps
up de *NIX style. I used to hold several mail list with Mailman (5MB
source) but this 30Kb source Minimalist gives me the same service.<br><br>
Great!<br><br><i>muhandix</i>

<p><font size=3><b><u>What is this?</u></b></font>
<p><font size=2>Minimalist stands for <i>Minimalistic Mailing Lists Manager</i>. Although
it is declared as minimalistic, it has many features as his eldest brosers,
such as Majordomo and so on, but in contrast to them it is very small, fast,
simple for setup and maintenance. Also it has very clean internal structure and
if you are familiar with Perl, you can add as many additional features, as you
need.

<p>Supported features are:<ul>
<li>subscribe/unsubscribe users by request<ul>
    <li> including write-only option of subscription</ul>
<li>several levels of security
<li>read-only/closed/mandatory lists
<li>information about list; users, subscribed to list; lists, to which user subscribed
<li>per-user options:<ul>
    <li>read-only (for open lists)
    <li>write allow (for read-only lists)
    <li>maximum message size</ul>
<li>susped/resume subscription
<li>archiving lists (internal and external), with configurable maximum size of archived message
<li>multilanguage support
<li>process MIME-encoded messages<ul>
    <li>including support for local charset (for reports and footer)</ul>
<li>external delivery of processed message
<li>blacklist
<li>logging activity
</ul>

<p>Minimalist doesn't support digests and author isn't even going to make this
support available.

<p>Basic language of Minimalist is English, additional languages can be found
   in <a href="languages/">languages area</a>.

<p>You may look into <a href="minimalist.conf-sample">example of configuration file</a>.

<p>Installation and maintenance instruction <a href="README">is available</a>.

<p><font size=3><b><u>Where to download?</u></b></font>
<p>Latest <b>stable</b> version of Minimalist is 2.5(3), changes reflected <a
href="CHANGES.txt">here</a><br>
<p>You can download this piece of software here:
<a href="minimalist.tar.gz">MINIMALIST.tar.gz</a>.<br>

<!--<p><font size=3><b><u>Is author reachable?</u></b></font>
<p>Yes, of course, I'm reachable via e-mail as
<a href="mailto:doka@ua">Vladimir Litovka &lt;doka@ua&gt;</a>.
Bug reports, feature requests, encourages and so on are very welcome :-) But I
need to say, that usually I don't have many free time and can't quickly respond to your
mails. I you are afraid, that I've missed or forgotten your mail, don't
hesitate to send it next time, with word 'MINIMALIST' in subject - this helps
me more effectively filter messages. Thank you.
