Projects / eSquire


eSquire is a majordomo replacement that provides a web frontend to most list manager functions. Subscribe / Unsubscribe functions use the majordomo style so users don't necessarily notice that it's not majordomo.

      Project continued ?
      Is this project still maintained ? because there were no updates anymore since 3 years ago.

      Anyone got in touch with the author lately?

      web access to archives
      eSquire supports MHonArc and Hypermail mail to HTML web archives. These are in addition to the berkeley style archives that it maintains (if the archive flag is on)

      I've not yet decided how to forward the "welcome" messages for manually added users, but yes.. I'm working on it.

      There is an HTML snippet and associated CGI that users can add to their web sites for web based signup to the list.

      admin_template.htm is the snippet which invokes

      Very clean interface, I like it. But are the archives web accessible? Also, it would be nice to make an option so that when you add a user, you have the ability to send them the welcome message even though you're subscribing them manually. Also, can the user administer their own options via the web including the ability to subscribe themselves from a web page? I run mailman for that exact reason.

      Online Demo will now give you a glimpse of how
      eSquire works. It is still in progress, but it gives you a fair idea.

      An online demo would sure be nice...
