LISTSERV debuts

From the Web site of L-Soft, the company that sells commercial LISTSERV: "The story of LISTSERV began in Paris, France, when a young engineering student, Eric Thomas, wrote the first version of LISTSERV. … Before its invention, all email lists had to be administered manually. Mail templates were added to LISTSERV, allowing list owners to create automatic responses to specific commands and to customize administrative messages."
