The listserv is back up to stay hopefully after being down for about ten days due to vacations (it was was up briefly during that time) There have been two changes of note: The listserv now handles addresses in normal format (with the "@") rather than in "bang" format (with the "!" ). The messages distributed by the listserv now have headers with: The latter change may be helpful in sorting your mail. Also note that the prefered way to address the Cohousing-L gopher archives is at gopher.uci.com . During the 'vacation' the listserv generally did not respond or bounce commands sent to it. They should be handled now that it's back up. If not try again or send me a note. A few messages that have been sent to Cohousing-L have been "rejected" due to address problems. I'll get those sorted out soon. If after a few days you don't see your message posted, send me a note. Below is a a summary of the listserv commands. Fred Fred H. Olson fholson [at] uci.com Amateur radio: WB0YQM 1221 Russell Av N, Minneapolis, MN 55411 voice: (612) 588-9532 Sysop of COHOUSING-L listserv & gopherspace (gopher: gopher.uci.com) Helpful COHOUSING-L list commands Everyone, PLEASE, make sure you have recorded these addresses somewhere and use as indicated : Send list related COMMANDS (see below) to: .. listserv [at] uci.com Post messages ABOUT COHOUSING ONLY to: ...... cohousing-l [at] uci.com Send for help etc. from sysop to: ........... fholson [at] uci.com Send list commands as first line of body of message to listserv [at] uci.com. 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 ACK / To undo one, use another. SET COHOUSING-L (no parmameter, sends back current status) INDEX COHOUSING-L GET COHOUSING-L <filename> SEARCH COHOUSING-L <some_string_or_expression> REVIEW COHOUSING-L (get list of subscribers) HELP SUBSCRIBE COHOUSING-L <your real name> UNSUBSCRIBE COHOUSING-L Note that no name or argument is allowed! 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. 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.
