You used the address for the list itself; the address for the listSERVER,
where you'd want to send an "UNSUBSCRIBE techwrl" command, is (converted from the BITNET address,

listserv -at- osuvm1 -dot- BITNET)

However, if you don't still have your old e-mail address and send the
UNSUBSCRIBE message from it, the listserver won't "recognize" you, so in
that case you're better off sending personal mail to the listowner, Eric J.
Ray: (converted likewise)

Note that the "" part of both addresses I gave above is just
*a* BITNET gateway, one I got from The Whole Internet User's Guide and
Catalog by Ed Krol. For list postings you should find out what the nearest
one (nearest = fewest routing hops away from WELL.SF.CA.US) is for you, and
use that for the part after the % in converted BITNET addresses.

For example, the name of my nearest BITNET gateway is
"," so my mail program knows the techwr-l *list* address

techwr-l%osuvm1 -at- ugw -dot- utcc -dot- utoronto -dot- ca

Probably the folks at The Well (where you're mailing from, yes?) can tell
you what your nearest BITNET gateway is. Hope all this has helped.
