This is the command help for version 2.0.11 of the "Mailman" list program. The following describes commands you can send to get information about and control your subscription to Mailman lists at this site. A command can be in the subject line or in the body of the message.
List specific commands (subscribe, who, etc) should be sent to the *-request address for the particular list, e.g. for the 'mg_discussion' list, use 'mg_discussion-request@...'.
About the descriptions - words between "//"s signify REQUIRED items and words in "" denote OPTIONAL items. Do not include the "//"s or ""s when you use the commands.
The following commands are valid:
subscribe [password] [digest-option] [address=/address/]
Subscribe to the mailing list. Your password must be given to unsubscribe or change your options. When you subscribe to the list, you'll be reminded of your password periodically. 'digest-option' may be either: 'nodigest' or 'digest' (no quotes!) If you wish to subscribe an address other than the address you send this request from, you may specify "address=/email address/" (no brackets around the email address, no quotes!)
unsubscribe /password/ [address]
Unsubscribe from the mailing list. Your password must match the one you gave when you subscribed. If you are trying to unsubscribe from a different address than the one you subscribed from, you may specify it in the 'address' field.
See everyone who is on this mailing list.
View the introductory information for this list.
See what mailing lists are run by this Mailman server.
set /option/ /on|off/ /password/
Turn on or off list options. Valid options are:
Turn this on to receive acknowledgement mail when you send mail to the list.
Receive mail from the list bundled together instead of one post at a time.
Get plain-text, not MIME-compliant, digests (only if digest is set)
Stop delivering mail. Useful if you plan on taking a short vacation.
Turn this on to NOT receive posts you send to the list. Does not work if digest is set.
Conceals your address when people look at who is on this list.
Show the current values of your list options.
password /oldpassword/ /newpassword/
Change your list password.
end or --
Stop processing commands (good to do if your mailer automatically adds a signature file - it'll save you from a lot of cruft).
Commands should be sent to *-email@example.com (e.g. for the mediaglyphs-discussion list use mediaglyphs-discussion-request@...)
Questions and concerns for the attention of a person should be sent to
*-firstname.lastname@example.org (e.g. for the mediaglyphs-discussion list use mediaglyphs-discussion-owner@...)
