       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 beginning letter of the email address getting
       subscribed in the <listdir>/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 <listdir>/digesters.d/ directory.

       The nomail version of the list is a list version where people are subscribed  like  usual,
       but  they  won't  receive any postings to the list. This is useful for people who read the
       mailinglist through a news gateway, 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

       If  the  given  address is already subscribed to the list, but to a different version, the
       subscription is switched to that version, and confirmation and moderation are bypassed. If
       the  address  is  already  subscribed  to  the  version  requested,  a mail is sent to the
       subscriber, unless the -s switch is used.

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

       To ensure subscription is silent from the point of view of the  subscriber,  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 already-subscribed addresses by accident.
