Question

The list manager responds with:

No valid command found – sending help.
Successful

Answer

The problem is that the MAILTO command can not be used to send commands directly to a List Manager. It must go via the GMS Mail WWW filter. Have a look at the GMS Mail manual under WWW Filter for details.

Alternatively you can use the MAILTO.EXE program which does need the WWW filter.
