Discussion of All Aspects of Traditional and Modern Judo
|SUBSCRIBING TO JudoList||
Welcome to the JudoList, an email list for the discussion of all aspects of traditional and modern Judo. JudoList uses Majordomo as a list engine and is hosted on an OLM web hosting server. Some of the features are open and some are closed to the list members only, and are discussed below for each case. Please send any questions to the JudoList Administrator.
Majordomo is an automated system which allows users to subscribe and unsubscribe to mailing lists, and to retrieve files from list archives. You can interact with the Majordomo software by sending it commands in the body of mail messages addressed to Majordomo@chas-ma.com. Please do not put your commands on the subject line because Majordomo does not process commands in the subject line. You may put multiple Majordomo commands in the same mail message by putting each command on a line by itself.
If you use a "signature block" at the end of your mail, Majordomo may mistakenly believe each line of your message is a command; you will then receive spurious error messages. To keep this from happening, put a line with just the word “end” after the last command line. This will stop the Majordomo software from processing your signature or other sords in your email as bad commands.Common features are listed on the left, with examples.
Once you've determined that you wish to subscribe to one or more lists on this system, you can send an email to the list server (Majordomo) to be added to the list. The email "To" address for server commands is always "Majordomo@chas-ma.com". The subject is left blank, and the commands are placed in the body where the text goes, one command per line, with the last line being the single word "end".
To receive list mail at the address from which you're sending your mail, configure your email as follows:
If you want to sign up with a different address other than the one that you are sending from, you would add that address to the command. For example, this would look as follows:
You will receive email notification that a request to subscribe has been received, and an acknowledgement is required. If you are registering a different address, both the originator's and the applicant's addresses will receive a message containing the request for acknowledgement. This is done to greatly reduce spam applications trying to use the JudoList for advertising. If you get an approval message you are not expecting, please contact the JudoList Administrator. The notification message will direct you to return a command line back to Majordomo@chas-ma.com. Please respond by replying to the message, making sure the "To:" address is "Majordomo@chas-ma.com". Delete all text except the command line you are to return, and place a new line after the command line with the single word "end". An example of your email will be as follows:
The XXXXXXX will be the unique key for your acknowledgement request.
When your approval email is received and processed, you should receive an introductory message containing list policies and features. Save this message for future reference; it will also contain exact directions for unsubscribing. If you lose this email, send this message to Majordomo@chas-ma.com:
Remember the message you saved for future reference? Now is the time to use it. If you lost it, there is no problem. You can get a new welcome message as described above. The intro message contains the exact command which should be used to remove your address from the list. However, you can just send the below email to Majordomo@chas-ma.com with the command "unsubscribe" followed by the list name:
To remove an address other than the one from which you're sending the request, give that address in the command:
You will receive email notification that a request to unsubscribe has been received, and an acknowledgement is required. If you are unsubscribing from a different address, both the originator's and the applicant's addresses will receive a message containing the request.
Note: This feature is currently not available. It is a version 2.0 feature, and Judolist is currently running version 1.9+.
If you will be unable to read your email and you don't want your mailbox to be filled with messages, then you can use the following command to temporarily stop receiving mail the JudoList. Send the following command line back to Majordomo@chas-ma.com:
If you are subscribed with an email address other than the one from which you are sending this email, then you can use:
When you wish to begin receiving list mail again, then sent the following command in the message body to Majordomo@chas-ma.com:
If you are subscribed with a different email address other than the one from which you are sending email, you can use the following command:
A digest version of a list is a way to reduce the number of messages sent from JudoList to subscribers. With a digest, several messages are collected into one message. Although this does not reduce the total size too much, the main purpose is to reduce the number of separate messages. This actually helps the mail systems at both ends, and may help subscribers reduce clutter in their mailboxes. The digest of JudoList is actually a separate mailing list.called JudoList-Digest. People subscribe independently to JudoList and JudoList-Digest, keeping in mind the content is the same. Although some may want to subscribe to both lists, if you want a digest version of JudoList, you must follow the directions above for judolist, but substitute "judolist" with "judolist-digest". For example, to unsubscribe from JudoList and subscribe to JudoList-Digest, configure your email as follows:
JudoList-Digest is currently being configured to be sent once per day.
Many list owners keep archives of files associated with a list. These may include: - back issues of the list - help files, user profiles, and other documents associated with the list - daily, monthly, or yearly archives for the list
To find out if a list has any files associated with it, use the "index" command:
If you see files in which you're interested, you may retrieve them by using the "get" command and specifying the list name and archive filename. For instance, to retrieve the files called "archive_name" , you would send an email to Majordomo@chas-ma.com as follows:
You can get more than one archive by placing each "get" command on a separate line, as follows:
To get another copy of the help message, send mail to Majordomo@chas-ma.com with a line saying "help" in the message body as follows:
