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.

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.
