This is long, but here are all the information I got when I subscribed. ..

Your  subscription to  the CALONTIR  list (Historical  Recreation in  the
Kingdom of Calontir) has been accepted.

Please save this message for future  reference, especially if this is the
first time you are subscribing to an electronic mailing list. If you ever
need to  leave the list,  then you  will find the  necessary instructions
below. Perhaps  more importantly, saving a  copy of this message  (and of
all future  subscription notices from  other mailing lists) in  a special
mail folder  will give you  instant access to  the list of  mailing lists
that you are subscribed to. This may  prove very useful the next time you
go on vacation and need to leave  the lists temporarily so as not to fill
up your  mailbox while you  are away! You  should also save  the "welcome
messages" from the list owners that  you may receive after subscribing to
a new list.

To send a message to all of  the people currently subscribed to the list,
just send mail to [log in to unmask]. This is called "sending mail
to  the list"  because  you are  sending  mail to  a  single address  and
LISTSERV makes  copies for all  of the  people who have  subscribed. This
address ([log in to unmask])  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 [log in to unmask],  which is the LISTSERV  address. It is
very important to understand the difference between the two. The LISTSERV
address is like a FAX number that connects you to a machine; whereas, the
list address is like  a normal voice line connecting you  to a person. If
you make  a mistake and dial  the FAX number  when you wanted to  talk to
someone on  the phone, you will  quickly realize that you  used the wrong
number and  call again.  No harm will  have been done.  If, on  the other
hand, you accidentally  make your FAX call to someone's  voice line, then
the person receiving the call  will be inconvenienced, especially if your
FAX  then re-dials  every  5  minutes. The  fact  that  most people  will
eventually connect the FAX machine to the  voice line to allow the FAX to
go through and make the calls stop does not mean that you should continue
to send FAXes to the voice number. It works pretty much the same way with
mailing  lists, with  the difference  that  you are  calling hundreds  or
thousands of people  at the same time, and consequently  you can expect a
lot of people to get upset if  you consistently send commands to the list
address.

You  may leave  the list  at  any time  by sending  a "SIGNOFF  CALONTIR"
command to [log in to unmask]. 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 CALONTIR REPRO" command and LISTSERV
will send you a copy of your own messages so 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  CALONTIR. If  you send  a "SET  CALONTIR ACK
NOREPRO" command,  then 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 the "SET CALONTIR NOACK NOREPRO" command.

Following  instructions from  the list  owner, your  subscription options
have  been set  to  "REPRO  SUBJECTHDR" rather  than  the usual  LISTSERV
defaults. For more information about  subscription options, send a "QUERY
CALONTIR" command to [log in to unmask].

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

This  list is  available  in digest  form.  If you  wish  to receive  the
digested version of  the postings, then just issue a  SET CALONTIR DIGEST
command.

More  information on  LISTSERV  commands  can be  found  in the  LISTSERV
reference  card, which  you can  retrieve  by sending  an "INFO  REFCARD"
command to [log in to unmask].
