If you are using Mail Filtering, you may send mail from your normal BBS account but readdress it using the Mail Aliases feature, provided that your account is set up to allow any outgoing address (using an asterix [*] in the Mail Aliases configuration file).
The next stage is to tell OAT to begin converting these messages into a Topic file.
In order to tell OAT about your Mailing List users, you must add lines to the 'Mailing Lists' configuration file, found inside the Configuration Files folder in the OAT folder.
The first item on each line is the user name for your list. The second item (separated by a tab) is the name of the Topic file that should be created.
List Semperfi <tab> Apple Semper Fi List Evangelist <tab> Evangelist List Appledev <tab> Apple Developers List Applescript User <tab> AppleScript UsersNote: there are no no spaces between each item and the tabs, the spaces above are purely aesthetic.
In the above, 'List Semperfi' is the name of the user that has been created in User Manager. The topic file for the 'List Semperfi' will be called 'Apple Semper Fi'.
In order to manage the size of the topic file, you should establish a Mail Server link to it and place a restriction on the number of messages allowed in the file.
An additional extra: if you wish, you can actually deliver messages arriving at the list to any BBS systems that call your system for TFNet email by sharing the topic as you would any other shared topic.
