I dont use pop3 i use outlook express

I have determined that it is a physical impossibility for one to install mailing list software on Linux. I've tried both MailMain, and Majordomo neither of which I could get working after an hour of tinkering. I'm a smart guy, I know my way around a Linux box, but these pieces of software are the biggest loads of garbage I've ever seen. Whatever happened to the:


./configure
make
make install


There are funky permission issues, and alias issues, and God knows what else thwarting my installation. I can't be the only one out there that realizes that it takes a degree in rocket science to install one of these things. Grrrrrr... They're not even that complicated. I could write one in perl in 10 lines!!!
