Can I receive all messages for the day at once?
Yes. This is called a Digest. Set your CALNDR-L subscription to
"Digest" by sending set calndr-l digest to the listserver
address. If you change your mind, send set calndr-l nodigest.
How do I access the CALNDR-L Archives?
All archives are available by email. You may request a
monthly archive and it will be mailed to you immediately.
Some of these are rather large files.
The archives go back to January 1997. To retrieve the archive
for that month, send get calndr-l LOG9701 to the listserver
Archives are also available on the web, here:
https://listserv.ecu.edu/scripts/wa.exe?A0=calndr-l (login required)
Why do I not receive copies of my own posted messages to CALNDR-L?
You probably turned off this function without realizing it.
The repro option of your subscription sends you
a copy of your own posted messages. The
ack option of your subscription sends you an
acknowledgement notice when you post messages to CALNDR-L.
- Send set calndr-l repro to the listserver if you want
to receive copies of your own messages. Reset this function by
sending set calndr-l norepro.
- Send set calndr-l ack to the listserver if you want to receive
an ackowledgement message everytime you post to CALNDR-L. To reset this
function, send set calndr-l noack.
How can I find out what options are set for my subscription?
Send review calndr-l to the listserver.
Why was I removed from CALNDR-L?
The CALNDR-L listowner recieves each of the list's unsuccessful email
deliveries, with a cryptic message explaining the failure. You will
eventually be removed from CALNDR-L by the listowner if it looks like
your email address is permanently invalid. If you were removed from
CALNDR-L by mistake, you need only contact the listowner to be
resubscribed, and to receive an apology.
How do I get my calendar website listed here?
