Welcome back from the Cohousing-L vacation

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.

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.

acknowledgement may mean you sent the command to the wrong address.
