I believe the mailing lists were:

  cisco@spot.colorado.edu

  wellfleet-l@nstn.ns.ca

  P4200@DEVVAX.TN.CORNELL.EDU (or PROTEON@UXC.CSO.UIUC.EDU)

Yes?
A winner!

Trivia question: name the mailing list used at the time for each of these platforms. You need to know all 3 in order to win acclaim and fortune :-)
