For those who want to reduce the number of messages on busy days, there's always the digest option on the listserv software, which is (please correct me if I'm wrong, Fred) user-settable. Send a message to listserv [at] uci.com with the following line in the *body* of the message: set cohousing-l mail digest ======================================================================== Syntax: set <list> [<option> <value>] Without the optional arguments, get a list of all current settings for the specified list. Otherwise change the option to the new value for that list, as follows: option can be: mail value can be: ack, noack, postpone, digest 'set <list>': get the current option settings for the list 'set <list> mail ack': your message is sent back to you 'set <list> mail noack': your message is not sent back to you 'set <list> mail postpone': no messages will be sent to you until you change mode again 'set <list> mail digest': your message is not sent back to you. New messages are not sent to you as they arrive, but are accumulated into digests that are periodically sent to you.
