Black cow ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 21 May 1994 05:06:45 CDT From: Natalie Maynor 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. 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 person. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]ra.msstate.edu)
