>From memory - there was a minor discussion a while back on
replacing the IUCr listserv software (which is incredibly woeful
to use and manage - just my opinion) to something more modern.

One possibility used at Birkbeck College is the freeware GPL'd
Mailman program:

Example of Mailman in action is at:

Mailman homepage:
  
  http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/

-------------

If this looked kosher - what timeframe would be possible
to change over to a program like Mailman?

An advantage of this would be that the owner of the 
individual mailing lists would have much more intuitive
control to administer things via the web.

Cheers,

Lachlan.
