Mailing list that posts every email to a webpage?? Can't Post

Greetings all. This is what I want to do. I want to create a closed mailing list(meaning there will be a set number of people on the list) that say, whenever an email is sent to this mailing list, everyone in the list will get the email. I also want every email that is sent to the mailing list to be posted on a webpage. Does this sound possible? I was thinking I might need 2 scripts to pull this one off but what do you guys/gals think? Thanks so much!

You don't say what your setup is, but you can use majordomo for the mailing list and have one of the "subscribers" be an alias that just writes out to disk (ie, 'someone: /saves/to/some.file').

That's assuming you're using sendmail, postfix, qmail or the like, although any mail server worth anything will be able to save email to an arbritrary file.

Alternately (and assuming the same above mail servers), you can pipe the message out to a script for processing with 'someone: "|/path/to/program optional args"'.
