Here's an excerpt on LISTSERV from the TERENA (Trans-European Research and 
Education Networking Association) home page (http://www.earn.net/)

"LISTSERV is a distribution list management package. It allows
groups of computer users with a common interest to communicate among 
themselves. It makes it very easy for even a novice user to discover, 
join and participate in these interest group mailing lists. LISTSERV also 
provides facilities for logging and archiving of mail traffic, file 
server functions, and database searches of archives and files."

You could get more info on LISTSERV by sending an e-mail with the 
command HELP or INFO to listserv@listserv.net.

Or you could ftp LISTSERV info at EARN's ftp site: ftp.earn.net in the 
directory /pub/doc/listserv/ to get a user's guide to LISTSERV.
