If I wanted to learn all about how I could make automated mailing lists, and other similar things, (such as guestbooks and search facilities for a website), and not only how to make the list, but what prerequisites I needed in terms of knowledge of script languages, cgi-bin directories, etc, who or where could I ask?
At this stage, I envisage number of subscribers at 50-200.
I'm really not sure what facilities I'd need. I'm really trying to find out whether it's possible for me to set up a mailing list where people "subscribe" and automatically have their names added, and can also "unsubscribe" and have their names removed. I know there are lots of places on the web (eg. Matt's Script Archive seems to be a popular one) to get pre-done scripts for this type of thing, but I'm interested in knowing how to do it myself 'from scratch'...

Re: Mailing List
From your original posting in the Lounge, I'm afraid I was thinking you were looking for list-server software to run on your own pc/server - but I now realise you are probably looking for something that would be placed and run on the web.
For mail servers, checkout MDaemon which will give you unlimited lists from the basic package.
A quick search using Google for 'forum software' throws up other possibilities - e.g. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.w-agora.net/>Agora</A> - which appears to be a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> offering of what you are after!
