How do I subscribe people automatically?

If you would like a simple method for subscribing people automatically, via some program, to your Lyris lists, the easiest way to do this is to send a message on their behalf to subscribe-listname@…

On Unix, you do this by using sendmail.

On Windows, you can use the "Blat" command line program to send an email message. Blat is available at: http://gepasi.dbs.aber.ac.uk/softw/Blat.html

The command to send an email message to Lyris to subscribe someone on NT is:

    echo subscribe | blat - -server 207.105.6.126 -f john@somewhere.com -t sub-nt-list

You will need to change the john@shelby.com to be the subscribee, and the TCP/IP address to be the IP address for your Lyris server
