Description: Webmasters at popular sites get a tremendous amount of email from people requesting that they add them to their mailing list. This can be very time-consuming, particularly if one does not have a mailing list. SPAM (TM) allows you, the Webmaster, to have a mailing list where people add and subtract themselves automatically. It is not a mailing list in the Listserv sense. You, the administrator, are the only person who can send mail to the list. Users receive mail that appears to have come directly from you. If they reply, it is directly to the email address that you specify.
