    Just wondering what others are using to import mailing lists, one way, to
    echos

    when i was doing that on my old RA/FD/FE setup, i used GIGO which created PKTs for FE to import... my GIGO had its own FTN address for the purpose...

    these days, though, i'm running sbbs which has that ability builtin... the messages are posted to a message area... if that area is QWK networked, they go
    out that way... if it is FTN'd, they go that way... they can even be
    accessed via NNTP if configured for such ;)

    Yeah I used to use GIGo also. Took me awhile to get used to it. It was one of the Benefits also of BBBS in that mailing lists could go straight to an echo. There was a soup based program, just cannot recall the name of it. I know the source is out there
