Mailing List Help File
If your want to sign up for e-mail distribution of the newsletter, please contact Paul Taylor or Paula George.

Please read the list guidelines (see below) before engaging in discussion. In addition, familiarize yourself with how the list operates, especially if you've never participated in an Internet email discussion group before. It's a good idea to save this information somewhere so you know how to unsubscribe.

When dealing with a listserver, there are two types of messages, namely, COMMANDS and POSTS. Unlike traditional listservers which require the use of numerous email addresses, we have simplified the process by allowing for both COMMANDS and POSTS to be sent to the same address.

These e-mail messages are intended to cause some action to occur, such as subscribing the FROM address to a mailing list. Commands are usually one or two word phrases which should be entered in the SUBJECT field of the message. Any other fields are ignored... it doesn't matter what you put in them.

The following commands are accepted:

Adds your e-mail address to the list of subscribers.
You will then receive all posts.
You are then allowed to post from that address.

Removes your e-mail address from the list of subscribers.
You will no longer receive any posts.
You are no longer allowed to post.

subscribe digest
Switches you to digest mode.
To switch back, send a "subscribe" command.

Returns a list of digests for the past 30 days along with instructions for retrieving them via e-mail.

Returns a list of the subscribers (including digest subscribers).

This message will be returned.

Email messages which don't match any commands are distributed to everyone on the list. Every time you post a message, hundreds of other people on the list receive a copy, just as if you sent it to them personally. As a member of the list, you will receive a copy of every message anyone else sends. Some of the lists on this server require you to subscribe to that list before you are allowed to post messages. Some lists are restricted and only the list moderator(s) is permitted to post messages to those lists.
