Frontier-Central Help File

This is the help message for the Frontier Central mailing list.  The e-mail

address for this list is


Please read the list guidelines (see below) before engaging in discussion.

In addition, familiarize yourself with how the list operates, especially if

you've never participated in an Internet email discussion group before.

It's a good idea to save this message somewhere so you know how to


When dealing with a listserver, there are two types of messages, namely,

COMMANDS and POSTS. Unlike traditional listservers which require the

use of numerous email addresses, we have simplified the process by

allowing for both both COMMANDS and POSTS to be sent to the same address.


These e-mail messages are intended to cause some action to occur, such as

subscribing the FROM address to a mailing list.  Commands are usually one or

two word phrases which should be entered in the SUBJECT field of the message.

Any other fields are ignored... it doesn't matter what you put in them.

The following commands are accepted:


    adds your e-mail address to the list of subscribers

    you will then receive all posts

    you are then allowed to post from that address


    removes your e-mail address from the list of subscribers

    you will no longer receive any posts

    you are no longer allowed to post

subscribe digest

    switches you to digest mode

    you will then receive one message per day which lists all posts

    to switch back, send a "subscribe" command


    returns a list of digests for the past 30 days along with

    instructions for retreiving them via e-mail


    this message will be returned


Email messages which don't match any commands are distributed to everyone on

the list.

Every time you post a message, hundreds of other people on the list receive a

copy, just as if you sent it to them personally.  As a member of the list, you

will receive a copy of every message anyone else sends.  On this list, only

members of the list can post to it.

To correspond directly with a person, write to
