Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Using the DIGEST option
Using the DIGEST option
Thu, 11 Feb 1999 15:48:34 -0500
I've come across several postings on this list where individuals are upset
about getting "50 or 60" messages per day. Yes, this can seem a little
overwhelming... For those people, you may want to consider setting your
list options to DIGEST the messages. What it will do is "typically" save
all the messages that were sent to the list that day and send them to you
in one neat and manageable message. To set this option: Send a message to
"LISTSERV@LISTSERV.TCU.EDU" and send the command "SET SCOUTS-L DIGEST" in
the first line of the message body. Please keep in mind though, this will
hold the individual emails, so if you're more interested in getting the
mail immediately, this option would not be for you.
If you're interested in more information regarding LISTSERV commands, take
a look at the online user's manual.
I hope this was somewhat helpful. Let me take this opportunity to tell
everyone how great I think this list is. I look forward to opening my mail
everyday. Keep it up.
