LISTSERV TIPS LISTSERV TIPS is a document with the formal title "List Management Tips for LISTSERV Postmasters and List Owners". It was compiled in 1991 by Lisa Covi. LISTSERV TIPS can be retrieved from the LISTSERV hosts at SEARN and UBVM (among others) with the usual GET command. The basic document has never been updated and is very BITNET-oriented, but is still quite useful as a basic information source on running a list. To view LISTSERV TIPS on the World Wide Web, see Holly Stowe’s LISTSERV FAQ at

FSV GUIDE FSV GUIDE (formal title: "Setting Up the LISTSERV File Server -- A Beginner's Guide") is really aimed at LISTSERV maintainers, but it is a handy guide for list owners who have filelists on VM systems as well. Ben Chi (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the author of this fine document about the "traditional" VM LISTSERV file server system. It is no longer hosted at Albany but can be retrieved from L-Soft's web site at ftp://ftp.lsoft.com/documents/FSV.GUIDE , or from LISTSERV@LISTSERV.NET with the command GET FSV GUIDE .
