Oops. I used the reply command to Tom Stephens's query about how to set
digest and was going to use the ~h command to change the 'to' line to send
the reply just to him instead of to the list. Then I remembered that the
VM system I'm telnetting through to get back to my Unix system isn't going
to let me do that and also won't let me abort a note after starting it.
I'll rationalize my forgetting that by thinking that maybe somebody else
will someday need this kind of information.
Tom: The reason LISTSERV told you you're not a subscriber is that you
presumably sent the command from the same address you sent that message
to the list from -- which is not the address you're subscribed from. (You
can send mail to the list from any address since ADS-L is set as "send=
public".) You sent it from [AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]zodiac.bitnet -- you're subscribed from [AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]zodiac.
rutgers.edu. Since Rutgers has not registered zodiac in the bitnet-internet
equivalency tables, there's no way for LISTSERV to know you're the same
