Introduction to the WDDM Mailing List, firstname.lastname@example.org
Important: Mailing List Rules
The list is e-mail based only, all the interaction with the list is done by means of ordinary e-mail.
To post a new message to the whole list, send it to email@example.com.
To send a message to the list "owner" only, use the address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The list posts are archived on the server.
In all the other communication with the mailing list server, only the Address matters. The Subject and the Body of the message are completely ignored - they can be blank or arbitrary. The address begins with the string 'wddm-' followed by the request specification (a command to the server).
All archived messages posted to the list can be retrieved by their number or subject thread. It is recommended to first send out the request for the list of Subjects and Authors of up to 100 archived messages at a time using the 'index' command, and then to request the whole messages using the 'get' command.
Here is a list of the command addresses supported:
To subscribe (apply for WDDM membership) or unsubscribe from a list, send a message to: <email@example.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get the FAQ for a list, send mail to: <email@example.com> For help and a description of available commands, send a message to: <firstname.lastname@example.org> To subscribe or unsubscribe from the WDDM digest list: <email@example.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get an index with Subject and Author for messages 123 through 456, mail: <email@example.com> To get messages 123 through 145 (a maximum of 100 per request), mail: <firstname.lastname@example.org> To receive all messages with the same subject as message 12345, send an empty message to: <email@example.com> You can start a subscription for an alternate address, for example "firstname.lastname@example.org", just add a hyphen and your address (with '=' instead of '@') after the command word: <email@example.com> To stop subscription for this address, mail: <firstname.lastname@example.org> For addition or removal of addresses, a confirmation message to that address is sent. When you receive it, simply reply to it to complete the transaction.
