       This utility is used to subscribe people	to the specified  mailinglist.
       It  will	 write the email address in a file with	the name of the	begin-
       ning letter of the email	 address  getting  subscribed  in  the	<list-
       dir>/subscribers.d/ directory.

       The  digest  version of the list	is a list version where	people receive
       postings	to the list periodically (e.g. once a day)  or	when  a	 large
       number  of posts	have accumulated. Digest subscribers are in the	<list-
       dir>/digesters.d/ directory.

       The nomail version of the list is a list	version	where people are  sub-
       scribed	like  usual,  but they won't receive any postings to the list.
       This is useful for people who read the mailinglist through a news gate-
       way, but	want to	be able	to post	to the list. Nomail subscribers	are in
       the <listdir>/nomailsubs.d/ directory.

       Unless the -U switch is used it will switch its user id to the user  id
       owning  the  list  directory.  This is done to make sure	that new files
       created are having correct permissions.

       If the given address is already subscribed to the list, but to  a  dif-
       ferent  version,	the subscription is switched to	that version, and con-
       firmation and moderation	are bypassed. If the address is	 already  sub-
       scribed to the version requested, a mail	is sent	to the subscriber, un-
       less the	-s switch is used.

       Subscription may	be moderated (if <listdir>/control/submod exists)  un-
       less  the  -f  switch  is  given. When a	subscription is	permitted by a
       gatekeeper, welcome messages are	sent to	the subscriber as  usual,  re-
       gardless	of options given now.

       To  ensure  subscription	 is  silent from the point of view of the sub-
       scriber,	use -f,	but neither -c nor -C. To inhibit notification of  the
       owner,  use  -q.	 Use of	-s is recommended to ensure you	don't spam al-
       ready-subscribed	addresses by accident.
