Subject: Re: how-to's

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. Since Rutgers has not registered zodiac in the bitnet-internet

equivalency tables, there's no way for LISTSERV to know you're the same
