Hi! This is the ezmlm program. I'm managing the
email@example.com mailing list.
To confirm that you would like
added to the binutils mailing list, please send
an empty reply to this address:
Usually, this happens when you just hit the "reply" button.
If this does not work, simply copy the address and paste it into
the "To:" field of a new message.
This confirmation serves two purposes. First, it verifies that I am able
to get mail through to you. Second, it protects you in case someone
forges a subscription request in your name.
Some mail programs are broken and cannot handle long addresses. If you
cannot reply to this request, instead send a message to
<firstname.lastname@example.org> and put the
entire address listed above into the "Subject:" line.
--- Administrative commands for the binutils list ---
I can handle administrative requests automatically. Please
DO NOT SEND THEM TO THE LIST ADDRESS! If you do, I will not
see them and other subscribers will be annoyed. Instead, send
your message to the correct command address:
To subscribe to the list, send a message to:
To remove your address from the list, send a message to:
Send mail to the following for info and FAQ for this list:
Similar addresses exist for the digest list:
To get messages 123 through 145 (a maximum of 100 per request), mail:
To get an index with subject and author for messages 123-456 , mail:
They are always returned as sets of 100, max 2000 per request,
so you'll actually get 100-499.
To receive all messages with the same subject as message 12345,
send an empty message to:
The messages do not really need to be empty, but I will ignore
their content. Only the ADDRESS you send to is important.
You can start a subscription for an alternate address,
for example "email@example.com", just add a hyphen and your
address (with '=' instead of '@') after the command word:
To stop subscription for this address, mail:
In both cases, I'll send a confirmation message to that address. When
you receive it, simply reply to it to complete your subscription.
If despite following these instructions, you do not get the
desired results, please contact my owner at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be patient, my owner is a
lot slower than I am ;-)
