256 colors with SCO Open Server 5.0 & Compaq Prosignia

I want to run a mailing list on my SCO system ver. 5.0, but I don't know
where I could get a program which would distribute messages and do
all the necessary things like adding new user to list, removing user,
sending help message to user and so on.
If someone knows where I could get a free listserver program easy to
configure, I would be very happy.
Please send your reply to my private address, not to the list.
Thank you

Check Compaq's web site for specs on the PS500 to see what it says about

think that the address; ought to be) to ask.

It may well be that the driver does not support the function.  Been known
to happen.  I can't imagine that Compaq's built-in video would not support
256 colors on 1024x768.

1. 256 colors for my 16 color X server?

Does anyone know if there is a way to get my 16 color VGA
X-Server to do 256 "pseudo-colors"?  My Linux box is on
a network and I'm trying to use an application that is not
very nice with respect to color:( It tries to alloc
unavailable colors and results in the dreaded "technicolor
effect")... (aside from getting better video hardware)

I realize that dithering doesn't look as nice as having
the available colors, but in this case it would be better
than the alternative.
