Send this command to the listserv:
SET TECHWR-L DIGests
this asks for digests rather than getting messages as they are posted.
Also, you can send the command "help" to the list server to get some basic help
"refcard" command to get detailed help. (the SET listname options command came
from the command reference card)

Greetings everyone: I'd like to receive this list as a digest - but I haven't be
en able to
discover the right combination of commands. I haven't even been able to figure o
how to ask the listserver for help.
Any pointers? Thanks for your patience!
