Selected OLAC-L Command Options
NOTE: Send all commands to: LISTSERV@OCLC.ORG
SUBSCRIBE OLAC-L <your name> - To join the discussion list
UNSUBSCRIBE OLAC-L - To unsubscribe from (or signoff of) the discussion list. SIGNOFF OLAC-L does the same thing (N.B.: Do not add your name or e-mail address to the UNSUBSCRIBE or SIGNOFF command -- if you do, your request will be rejected by the LISTSERV software).
|* SET <mail distribution option> Commands:|
|SET OLAC-L MAIL||- to receive individual mail messages as they are posted to the list (default setting).|
|SET OLAC-L NOMAIL||- to stop list mail from being delivered to your address; to resume mail, issue the SET OLAC-L MAIL command.|
|SET OLAC-L DIGEST||- to receive daily digests of all messages posted to the list (1750 line limit).|
|SET OLAC-L INDEX||- to receive daily index summaries of mail posted to the list.|
|* NOTE about SET Options: You can only SET one mail distribution option at a time. You have to choose one option that best suits your needs at a given time. If you were set to DIGEST or INDEX and then set NOMAIL, sending the command SET OLAC-L MAIL will cause your mail distribution to revert to the previous setting.|
QUERY OLAC-L - Displays your mail distribution option settings (i.e., whether or not you are set to "digest", or "nomail", et al.); will also tell you whether or not you are subscribed to the list FROM THE ADDRESS FROM WHICH YOUR COMMAND WAS SENT.
INDEX OLAC-L - Causes LISTSERV to send you a list of all notebooks and other files in the OLAC-L archives.
SET OLAC-L REPRO/NOREPRO - Governs whether or not LISTSERV distributes a copy of each of your own messages to you as part of the OLAC-L distribution. REPRO is the default setting. If you do NOT want to receive copies of your own messages send LISTSERV the SET OLAC-L NOREPRO command.
INFO REFCARD - To retrieve a more complete listing of General User Commands (i.e., the LISTSERV Reference Card) for LISTSERV 1.8c.
** The above commands can be sent by sending the command as a one line message to: LISTSERV@OCLC.ORG. Multiple commands may be sent in a single mail message as long as each command is on a separate line.
Please don't send LISTSERV commands to the OLAC-L address. The LISTSERV address is for issuing COMMANDS, while the OLAC-L address is for messages intended for the distribution to the subscribership.
