The goblinbox.com listserve uses version 1.94.4 of Majordomo. If you’re familiar with mail servers, an advanced user’s summary of Majordomo’s commands appears at the end of this post.
Majordomo is an automated system which allows users to subscribe and unsubscribe to mailing lists, and to retrieve files from list archives.
You can interact with the Majordomo software by sending it commands in the body of mail messages addressed to “Majordomo@www.goblinbox.com”. Please do not put your commands on the subject line; Majordomo does not process commands in the subject line.
You may put multiple Majordomo commands in the same mail message. Put each command on a line by itself.
