New LISTSERV Highlights
HTML Editor: The message posting interface carries an integrated WYSIWYG HTML editor with template, draft and testing capabilities. The system contains sample HTML templates that can be used as is, or customers can create their own, making it possible to send HTML newsletters without expert-level HTML skills.
Content Analysis: The message posting interface offers a content analysis feature for customers with maintenance. The analysis runs the email message through SpamAssassin, highlighting potential problem areas and evaluating the likelihood that the message will be viewed as spam by receiving mail systems.
Improved Attachment Handling: The Attachments list configuration keyword has been expanded with an additional option, which permits users to send attachments to a list but instead of distributing them to subscribers, LISTSERV stores the attachments on the server for download using the automatically generated link.
UTF-8 Support: LISTSERV now supports UTF-8 for subscriber names, list titles and list descriptions, facilitating lists and subscribers that operate in non-English languages, especially when using charsets other than ISO-8859-1.
RSS Previews: The LISTSERV archives now display hovering RSS previews of the message content when moving the mouse over the subject line of a message.
Improved Archive Search: The archive search function has been improved to use more accurate sorting for searches that produce hits spanning several pages.
CSV Reports: List reports, subscriber report and server usage reports can now be downloaded as CSV files and exported to Excel or other external applications.
