POST A MESSAGE
Send it to
- MAIL versus NOMAIL -- if you're going away for a short time, you can
choose to _NOT_ receive any messages from the list (soccer &
video-rental) while you are away.
- MIME versus NOMIME -- that "language from outer-space" is
actually "MIME-encoded" text, which facilities the sending
of E-mail containing "binary" files (and Chinese encodings).
- FULLHDR versus SHORTHDR -- LISTSERV can remove many of the
'Received:' lines, so that the size of the E-mail is smaller.
If your computer has "MIME-decoding" capabilities, you can
change your subscription-options:
1. Send E-mail to 'LISTSERV@UVVM.UVIC.CA'.
2. Put something into the 'Subject:' line -- LISTSERV will ignore it.
3. Put the command: SET CSSAVC-L FULLHDR MIME into the "body"
of the E-mail.
4. Try to *NOT* automatically include a "signature" file.
5. Send the E-mail. LISTSERV should respond, within 60 seconds, to say
that your subscription- options have been updated. Then, the next
MIME-encoded message(s) you receive will automatically be decoded, by
your E-mail program.
