As you know, we launched MacDev-1 in Mid-May and you’ve been getting some
interesting information on Macintosh Development issues, tools and
announcements. But, we were not expecting the overwhelming success of the
list. With now thousands of people reading MacDev-1, we came within hundreds
(of subscribers) of hard limits on our server.
As a result, We have recently changed the software which hosts the MacDev-1
mailing list. And thanks to the folks at StarNine/QuarterDeck (the makers of
ListSTAR), we’re moving forward again with this growing list.
This changeover affects the commands which are used. We believe we have
successfully migrated all users from the prior package. Below are some answers
to questions we anticipate you may have.
Remember, anyone that you know of interested in news for the Mac OS developer
should subscribe to this list. Tell a friend! Put it on your web site!
Commands for the new MacDev-1 setup
All commands should be sent via e-mail to:
with one of the following commands in the SUBJECT line:
Your address will be added to the list of subscribers. If you are
subscribing to an unmoderated list, you will then be able to send
messages to this list that will be forwarded to all other
subscribe digest MACDEV-1
Your address will be added to the list of subscribers who receive
a digest instead of each forwarded message. If this list is
unmoderated, you will be able to send messages to this list.
You will receive a digest of accumulated messages once a day.
A list of available digests will be returned to you.
Your address will be removed from the list of subscribers.
You will no longer be able to send messages to the members
of the list.
This help message will be returned.
