[school-discuss] Re: [school-core] Announcing: Mailman 2.0.13 gets eVoting

Another way to explain this is like this:  mailman is simply a processor
for a mailing list address.  It is highly configurable, allowing the
list to be moderated (requiring list administrator approval for a
message to be sent) or unmoderated (an open discussion group).  When
someone sends a message to the list, the mailman software simply sends
the message to everyone who is subscribed to the list.  The subscribers
are hidden from the other users.  Since mailman sends the message to the
subscribers pop email account, they do not need to be on-line when the
message is send. =20

The server running the mailman service does need to be on-line at all
times in order to process the incoming messages.  Hope this was not=20
more confusing.
