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 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
The following commands are accepted (send all messages to
adds your e-mail address to the list of subscribers
you will then receive all posts as they are received
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
switches you to digest mode
you will then receive one message per day which lists all posts
to switch back, send a “subscribe” command
returns a list of digests for the past 30 days along with
instructions for retreiving them via e-mail
this message will be returned
Send all messages to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Email messages which don’t
match any commands above are forwarded to a moderator for approval. If
approved, the message is reflected to the entire list. As a member of the
list, you will receive a copy of every message anyone else sends. On this
list, only members of the list can post to it.
