If this fails after getting the syntax right, send a message to Cohousing-L-request [at] uci.com for assistance from the sysop. Note: I usually send this message to people who have had trouble unsubscribing rather than doing it for them to help educate net users about how to use mailing lists. Please note that the information in this message was in the Welcome message sent to you as a new subscriber. When you subscribe to any mailing list you should recieve a Welcome message. Please read and save such messages for future in your folder of MAILING LIST WELCOME MESSAGES. If you don't have a folder of MAILING LIST WELCOME MESSAGES or comparable, please start one. ALTERNATIVES TO JUST UNSUBSCRIBING If your reason for unsubscribing is information overload (the most frequent reason...) you may wish to consider one of three strategies other than just dropping your subscription discussed below -- Digest mode, Gopher, WWW. Whatever you decide, thanks for being with us. Fred ***** DIGEST MODE ***** Digest mode reduces mail from the list to one (long) message per day with a distinctive subject line that makes it easy to keep track of (and delete :) ) Use the command: 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. ***** GOPHER ***** An alternate way to read or browse the COHOUSING-L messages -- current and archived -- is via Gopher. If you have a gopher client try Gopher gopher.uci.com. Alternatively from the widely accessible University of Minnesota "Other Gophers" menu here are the links to get to the Cohousing-L Archives Gopher: Other Gophers and Information Servers (U of Minn) International Organizations Institute for Global Communications Progressive Gophers Economic Democracy Information Network Housing, Hunger & Welfare Cohousing Archives If you want to access the Cohousing-L Archives Gopher regularly, you will want to set a "Gopher Bookmark" in your Gopher client which greatly facilitates later access. Check your Gopher client's help for details. Note that at this time the Cohousing-L Gopher does not include a way to post messages. To post to the list you will need to subscribe as above. If you prefer to read messages via gopher you will probably wish to send the command: SET COHOUSING-L MAIL POSTPONE to LISTSERV [at] UCI.COM so the messages are not sent by email. ***** WWW **** The archives can be read via the developing Cohousing World Wide Web site whose URL is : http://everest.cs.ucdavis.edu/~stanifor/cohousing.html -- Fred H.
