I am experimenting with an Access database in which I will have all my listers
and the lists to which they are subscribed. I am also including sub and unsub
dates along with a "Notes" section for needed details (placed on reject list,

I will be glad to send the database shell to anyone who contacts me OFF-List.
It's pretty simple. The hardest part is getting all the data put in to start
with. Keeping it updated is simply a matter of entering data as people sub and
unsub. Obviously, I have all sub and unsub notices sent to me.

Someone who has more technical expertise than I might even be able to tell us
how to do a direct download from the Tools Pages. I am sending X-Commands
messages to get the latest information for entry into the database.
