How to Change Your Subscription Address

How to Temporarily Stop Receiving Listserv Postings

It is proper listserv etiquette to set your subscription on “nomail” when you will be away from your office for an extended period of time. This prevents other subscribers from receiving your automatic “out-of-office” reply every time they post to the list. Those who want to read the listserv mail they missed while away can do so through the archives.

Send an email message to listserv@lsv.arlisna.org with the subject line blank.

In the body of your message, type ONLY the following (no signature):

SET ARLISNA-MID-ATLANTIC NOMAIL

To reset your subscription follow the same steps substituting the command:

SET ARLISNA-MID-ATLANTIC MAIL
