L-Soft to Demonstrate E-Mail List Technology at IBM Share

LISTSERV® Developer Will Discuss Experiences with IBM Community


Landover, MD (July 18 , 2001) – L-Soft, creators of the original LISTSERV® technology, announced plans to exhibit at IBM's annual SHARE summer event held July 22-27 in Minneapolis. A pioneer in e-mail communication, L-Soft will demonstrate its high-performance mailing list software that is available on multiple platforms. L-Soft's flexible and scalable solutions provide organizations such as IBM, AT&T and Bell Canada with an effective means of distributing useful, relevant and up-to-date information to large numbers of customers, employees and interest groups via e-mail.

Attendees visiting Booth #109 July 23-25 may meet with L-Soft's technical team for a demonstration of available technology, including:

  • LISTSERV®, L-Soft's mailing list program designed for managing e-mail lists, including discussion groups and newsletters. LISTSERV is available on VM, OpenVMS, multiple Windows operating systems, and various unix platforms including AIX and Linux.
  • LSMTP®, L-Soft's lightning-fast e-mail delivery solution that enables a single server to deliver more than one million messages per hour.
  • ListPlex®, L-Soft's high-end hosting service, allowing customers to outsource their e-mail lists or personalized e-mail services under a virtual domain name for seamless integration with the rest of their Internet presence.

Working together, LISTSERV and LSMTP are capable of performing a "mail-merge" function. Mail-merge allows users to target customized e-mail messages with the help of a database back-end. Upcoming versions of LISTSERV will support IBM's DB2 database.

While at L-Soft's booth, attendees are encouraged to complete a survey aimed at determining the need for LISTSERV's availability on alternative platforms. Those who fill out the survey will receive a gift for their participation.

Eric Thomas, who originally programmed LISTSERV in 1986 for an IBM mainframe running VM/CMS, will deliver New Frontiers in E-mail Communication: LISTSERV & Beyond at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 25 in Room 210A at the Minneapolis Convention Center. With his years of experience as both a programmer and corporate CEO, Mr. Thomas offers a unique perspective geared to technically oriented individuals as well as managerial and senior-level IT professionals.
