The major complaint I have heard about the school-IT list is that
searching archives is hard. So I think that step one in moving to a
new platform would be to first move the archives into something where
searching is easier, and then move the users. If the information is
there, the users will follow, yes?
I have to admit that the name LISTSERV itself sounds to me like
something from the OS/360 era, but I'm quite comfortable with how it
all works via email.
