Commonly used commands for COHOUSING-L are (some details below): SUBSCRIBE COHOUSING-L <your real name> UNSUBSCRIBE COHOUSING-L SET COHOUSING-L MAIL DIGEST \ SET COHOUSING-L MAIL POSTPONE \ Note: Each sub is in one these of 4 SET COHOUSING-L MAIL NOACK / MAIL modes at any time.

SET COHOUSING-L MAIL DIGEST All messages for the day sent 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) When replying to a message in a 'digest', please manually enter the appropriate Subject/Thread -- otherwise your reply will have the subject: "RE: COHOUSING-L digest ##" which isn't very helpful. 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. SET COHOUSING-L MAIL POSTPONE No messages will be sent. 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 with for example SET COHOUSING-L MAIL ACK * SET COHOUSING-L With no parmameter, current status will be sent. 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] uci.com Only subscribers to COHOUSING-L can post or issue commands to the list. INDEX COHOUSING-L Gets list of archive files available. (Alternately try gopher uci.uci.com ) GET COHOUSING-L <filename> Returns file as one or more long email messages. SEARCH COHOUSING-L <some_string_or_expression> Get file references to a string. HELP get information about list server commands ** Please try to avoid sending commands to the wrong address. Successful commands are acknowledged with a return message. Lack of an acknowledgement may mean you sent the command to the wrong address. -- Fred H.
