This is a LISTSERV Maintainer function, not a List Owner feature.

A FILELIST contains files.
A file is made up of two parts: the FILENAME and the FILETYPE
The GET and PUT commands require: FILENAME FILETYPE FILELIST
This is because there might be the same FILENAME FILETYPE in
a different FILELIST which is not the same.  Think of the FILELIST
as the directory or folder.

Yes, to all of the above with the command: GET list-name (NOLOCK

Don't bother with those.  To send an additional introductory message
add a file called 'your-list-name WELCOME' to your FILELIST.  To tally
signoffs, change the Notify= list header keyword.
