The majordomo and mailman were a bit more than what I was looking for.  The 
minimalist port does look like it does exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm 
having an issue getting it configured.

My minimalist port seems to have been installed in 
'/usr/local/share/minimalist' and the config file appears to be in 
'/usr/local/etc/minimalist.conf'.  All files are under the '/usr/local/share' 
folder except the minimalist.conf in '/usr/local/etc'

I have set the directory directive to '/usr/local/share/minimalist' in the 
'/usr/local/etc/minimalist.conf' and created my list directories under there, 
but I am not able to see it when I send 'info' message to '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'.

reply from server for email with 'info' as subject:
These are the mailing lists available at email.domain.com:

Sincerely, the Minimalist

under /usr/local/share/minimalist:

My list.lst file has:
farm        The Farm mailing list.
south        Mailing list for Southern area.

I have the farm and south directories with a very short list file:

my /usr/local/etc/minimalist.conf (only non-commented lines)
directory = /usr/local/share/minimalist
password = 12345
auth = mailfrom [EMAIL PROTECTED]:@/usr/local/etc/mml.trusted

Any ideas where I might be going wrong?  The mechanism seems to be working, as 
I can send messages to 'minimalist' and get info, but its not seeing my lists.
