Tim,
Below is a copy of the message sent to me uponb my subscription to Architron:


"Your subscription to the ARCITRON list (Architronic: The Electronic Journal of
Architecture) has been accepted.

Please save this message for future reference, especially if you are not
familiar with LISTSERV. This might look like a waste of disk space now, but in
6 months you will be glad you saved this information when you realize that you
cannot remember what are the lists you are subscribed to, or what is the
command to leave the list to avoid filling up your mailbox while you are on
vacations. In fact, you should create a new mail folder for subscription
confirmation messages like this one, and for the "welcome messages" from the
list owners that you are will occasionally receive after subscribing to a new
list.

To send a message to all the people currently subscribed to the list, just send
mail to [email protected] This is called "sending mail to the list",
because you send mail to a single address and LISTSERV makes copies for all the
people who have subscribed. This address ([email protected]) is also
called the "list address". You must never try to send any command to that
address, as it would be distributed to all the people who have subscribed. All
commands must be sent to the "LISTSERV address", [email protected] (or
[email protected]). It is very important to understand the difference
between the two, but fortunately it is not complicated. The LISTSERV address is
like a FAX number, and the list address is like a normal phone line. If you
make your FAX call someone's regular phone number by mistake, it will be an
unpleasant experience for him but you will probably be excused the first time.
If you do it regularly, however, he will probably get upset and send you a
nasty complaint. It is the same with mailing lists, with the difference that
you are calling hundreds or thousands of people at the same time, so a lot more
people get annoyed if you use the wrong number.

You may leave the list at any time by sending a "SIGNOFF ARCITRON" command to
[email protected] (or [email protected]). You can also tell
LISTSERV how you want it to confirm the receipt of messages you send to the
list. If you do not trust the system, send a "SET ARCITRON REPRO" command and
LISTSERV will send you a copy of your own messages, so that you can see that
the message was distributed and did not get damaged on the way. After a while
you may find that this is getting annoying, especially if your mail program
does not tell you that the message is from you when it informs you that new
mail has arrived from ARCITRON. If you send a "SET ARCITRON ACK NOREPRO"
command, LISTSERV will mail you a short acknowledgement instead, which will
look different in your mailbox directory. With most mail programs you will know
immediately that this is an acknowledgement you can read later. Finally, you
can turn off acknowledgements completely with "SET ARCITRON NOACK NOREPRO".

Following instructions from the list owner, your subscription options have been
set to "Invalid subscription option - "NONE"." rather than the usual LISTSERV
defaults. For more information about subscription options, send a "QUERY
ARCITRON" command to [email protected] (or [email protected]).

Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can get a list
of the available archive files by sending an "INDEX ARCITRON" command to
[email protected] (or [email protected]). You can then order these
files with a "GET ARCITRON LOGxxxx" command, or using LISTSERV's database
search facilities. Send an "INFO DATABASE" command for more information on the
latter.

More information on LISTSERV commands can be found in the LISTSERV reference
card, which you can retrieve by sending an "INFO REFCARD" command to
[email protected] (or [email protected]).



To subscribe send the following comand to [email protected]:
