We have instituted a new informational service to keep VEMAP users informed of updates to the VEMAP database. Our intent is to use the service as a message board to quickly and easily disseminate pertinent database information. All messages are archived and are available from the listserver using the 'get' command descibed below. The list is called 'vemap_users' and is managed by firstname.lastname@example.org.
The service is a 'moderated' list as opposed to a discussion list. Under a moderated list, only the list owner can send messages to the list subscribers. Under a discussion list any individual subscriber can send messages to the entire list.
This message is an invitation to subscribe to the vemap_users list. I have included a description of commands that the service recognizes. In order to subscribe, send a message to:
Leave the subject blank, then type in the BODY of the letter:
'end' is optional, depending on whether your outgoing email messages include an appended footer (e.g., your name and address appended to the bottom of each message).
In response to this message, you will receive an email reply from email@example.com telling you of your successful subscription. If you wish to unsubscribe at any time, follow the instructions below.
NOTE: COMMANDS IN THE SUBJECT ARE NOT PROCESSED. ALL COMMANDS MUST RESIDE WITHIN THE BODY OF THE MESSAGE.
In the description below items contained in 's are optional.
When providing the item, do not include the 's around it.
