Send To: LISTSERV -at- VM1 -dot- UCC -dot- OKSTATE -dot- EDU
Message: SET TECHWR-L NOMAIL

I use this feature all the time and it
works great! Remember to leave the SUBJECT line
blank. (You can also SET TECHWR-L DIGEST in
this manner- from what I understand.) It's
certainly a benefit to be able to control how
much mail comes in!
Half a happy da-ay!
