Mailing List Help

This is email command help for the Mailman list manager. 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.

Note that much of the following can also be accomplished via the World Wide Web, at:

http://pc-audio.org/mailman/listinfo/pc-audio_pc-audio.org

In particular, you can use the Web site to have your password sent to your delivery address.

List specific commands (help, set, etc) should be sent to the following address:

pc-audio-request@pc-audio.org

About the descriptions - words in "<>"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:

confirm <confirmation-string>
Confirm an action. The confirmation-string is required and should be supplied by a mailback confirmation notice.

end
Stop processing commands. Use this if your mail program automatically adds a signature file.

help
Email a basic help message.

info
Get information about this mailing list.

lists
See a list of the public mailing lists on this GNU Mailman server.

password [<oldpassword> <newpassword>] [address=<address>]
Retrieve or change your password. With no arguments, this returns your current password. With arguments <oldpassword> and <newpassword> you can change your password.

If you're posting from an address other than your membership address, specify your membership address with `address=<address>' (no brackets around the email address, and no quotes!). Note that in this case the response is always sent to the subscribed address.

subscribe [password] [digest|nodigest] [address=<address>]
Subscribe to this mailing list. Your password must be given to unsubscribe or change your options, but if you omit the password, one will be generated for you. You may be periodically reminded of your password.

The next argument may be either: `nodigest' or `digest' (no quotes!). If you wish to subscribe an address other than the address you sent this request from, you may specify `address=<address>' (no brackets around the email address, and no quotes!)

unsubscribe [password] [address=<address>]
Unsubscribe from the mailing list. If given, your password must match your current password. If omitted, a confirmation email will be sent to the unsubscribing address. If you wish to unsubscribe an address other than the address you sent this request from, you may specify `address=<address>' (no brackets around the email address, and no quotes!)

set ...
Set or view your membership options. The following options can be set with this command:

set help
Email these set commands.

set show [address=<address>:]
View your current option settings. If you're posting from an address other than your membership address, specify your membership address with `address=<address>:' (no brackets around the email address, and no quotes!).

set authenticate <password>: [address=<address>:]
To set any of your options, you must include this command first, along with your membership password. If you're posting from an address other than your membership address, specify your membership address with `address=<address>:' (no brackets around the email address, and no quotes!).

set ack on
set ack off
When the `ack' option is turned on, you will receive an acknowledgement message whenever you post a message to the list.

set digest plain
set digest mime
set digest off
When the `digest' option is turned off, you will receive postings immediately when they are posted. Use `set digest plain' if instead you want to receive postings bundled into a plain text digest (i.e. RFC 1153 digest). Use `set digest mime' if instead you want to receive postings bundled together into a MIME digest.

set delivery on
set delivery off
Turn delivery on or off. This does not unsubscribe you, but instead tells Mailman not to deliver messages to you for now. This is useful if you're going on vacation. Be sure to use `set delivery on' when you return from vacation!

set myposts on
set myposts off
Use `set myposts off' to not receive copies of messages you post to the list. This has no effect if you're receiving digests.

set duplicates on
set duplicates off
Use `set duplicates off' if you want Mailman to not send you messages if your address is explicitly mentioned in the To: or Cc: fields of the message. This can reduce the number of duplicate postings you will receive.

Commands should be sent to pc-audio-request@pc-audio.org
