What do you mean by a "list processor"?  You just want to set up a generic mailing list under Linux, or you want to set up a device by which people can generate mailing lists, or something else entirely?

Hi,

You should look into installing Majordomo.
It is a set of perl scripts doing exactly what you described (among other things).
It comes with a small wrapper (written in C), which you need to compile on your system (don't worry, no big deal). In order to install it, you need to have access to the aliases file,
as each list require certain aliases. If you cannot find the majordomo distribution, I can look ik up for you. I can't remember the URL, but I should be able to find it.
