   (all list messages for the day in one message) When users set their
   mail mode to "digest", they will receive postings from the list only
   once a day, bundled as one message.  This is great for people who are
   annoyed by a lot of messages or who only check there mail once a day.
   (Includes 'noack' mode i.e. your message is not sent back to you)
SET COHOUSING-L MAIL ACK   Messages you send to the list WILL be sent to you.
SET COHOUSING-L MAIL NOACK Messages you send to the list WONT be sent to you.
   (hold messages) If you are going to be gone for a period of time and don't
   want to have your mailbox filling up with list messages, this feature
   will temporarily suspend mailings to you *until you change MAIL mode again*

SET COHOUSING-L                    (no parmameter, sends back current status)
   This is useful just to check if the address the listserver has for you
   "works".  If everything is ok; you get simply a message informing you what
   the current settings of your subscription are.
   However if there is a problem, you will get a message that starts:
   <address from your msg>: You are not subscribed to cohousing-l [at]
   Only subscribers to COHOUSING-L can post or issue commands to the list.
INDEX COHOUSING-L       Gets list of archive files available.

GET COHOUSING-L   <filename>  Returns file as on email message (up to about 64K)

SEARCH COHOUSING-L <some_string_or_expression>  Get file references to a string.
