Math Graduate Student E-mail List

[1] How do I unsubscribe from GradList?

To do so, you must send a command to, Majordomo, the software that serves the list. This is done by sending it an e-mail message. If you are unsubscribing from GradList, send your message to

GradList-request@erdos.math.louisville.edu

Sending your message to the standard list address will do nothing. The only thing to appear in the message should be the single word

unsubscribe

Make sure your mailer does not automatically append anything else to the message, and it's best to send the message as plain text e-mail. The return address on your message must be in the database of subscribers, so send the message from the same account you use to receive mail from the list. You should get an acknowledgement from the Majordomo software a short time after you unsubscribe. If this acknowledgement does not appear, something went wrong. More information about unsubscribe and other commands is available by sending e-mail containing the single word "help" to majordomo@erdos.math.louisville.edu.

If you change your e-mail address, please remember to unsubscribe from your old one and subscribe under your new address.

[2] How do I subscribe to GradList?

GradList-request@erdos.math.louisville.edu

In either case, the only thing to appear in the message should be the single word

subscribe

You should get an acknowledgement from the Majordomo software a short time after you subscribe. If this acknowledgement does not appear, something went wrong. More information about subscribe and other commands is available by sending e-mail containing the single word "help" to majordomo@erdos.math.louisville.edu.

[4] How do I post messages to the list?

To post a message to the discussion lists, just send an ordinary email message to GradList@erdos.math.louisville.edu. This message will be automatically distributed to all subscribers. If the return address on the message is not in the subscriber list, the message will be rejected.

There is no moderation on the list, so be careful what you post. When your message is sent, it will be immediately forwarded to all list subscribers.

There are a few nuances to posting that are sometimes nuisances.

First, the list management software, Majordomo, is set to look for certain key words in the subject of messages to avoid administrative commands being posted to the list. These include words such as subscribe and unsubscribe.

Second, only those subscribed to the list may post to the list. All other messages are rejected. The way Majordomo determines membership is from the sender's e-mail address. So, if you want to post to the list, you should probably send the message from the same account at which you receive mail from the list. (Or set your mail software to have an appropriate return address.) The reason for this requirement is to keep the spammers off the list.
