Introduction to the WDDM Mailing List, wddm@world-wide-democracy.net

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 wddm@world-wide-democracy.net.

To send a message to the list "owner" only, use the address: wddm-owner@world-wide-democracy.net.

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.
