- What is the eSquire mailing list manager?
- Why reinvent the wheel?
- What majordomo features are not supported by eSquire?
- What features are new to eSquire?
- Is eSquire Y2K safe?
eSquire is my response to the majordomo mailing list manager. I have been running
a number of majordomo sites in recent years, and have found that remote administration is
painful at best, and wished to create a simple replacement for majordomo with some of the
nice features it supports.
During the development of this, I also decided to include support for autoreponders.
The two projects go together better than you might first think.
Because I'm a geek. No, seriously... Because I have been maintaining a
number of majordomo lists on a handful of sites, and have yet to see it done well.
Part of this may be my own ignorance. Another part is my own arrogance. I
know that if I'm having trouble maintaining lists with majordomo, others are too.
And if I can make it easy to use, it will be a success.

Moderated lists are currently functional. But only just. I will be making
this function simpler to use in an upcoming release.
|WWW based management of lists|
|Integrated support for MHonArc and HyperMail|
|Banned user support|
To the best of my knowledge, eSquire is Y2K safe. eSquire does no date processing
that goes across date boundries. Any time eSquire does do a date function, if uses a
4 digit year format to avoid any ambiguity.
