HHUC List-Serv

What Is a List-Serv?

A forum for announcements (relating to HHUC) sent directly to your e-mail account.

How Do I Join?

All you need to do is send an e-mail to: listserv@listserv.utoronto.ca.

In the BODY of the message type a command of the form:
subscribe HHUC-L yourfirstname yourlastname
EXAMPLE: subscribe HHUC-L John Doe

You MUST subscribe from YOUR OWN e-mail account. The LISTSERV software extracts your e-mail address from the e-mail message you send then uses this address to distribute mail to you. If you subscribe using someone else's e-mail system, the other person, not you, will be added to the list. List names are not case sensitive so you can type the name in upper or lower case.

How Do I Quit?

You MUST quit a list using the same e-mail you used to subscribe to the list. The LISTSERV software extracts the e-mail address from the message you send. If you quit using someone else's system, the other person, not you, will be removed from the list.

To quit the list, send a message to: listserv@listserv.utoronto.ca

In the BODY of the message type a command of the form:
signoff HHUC-L@listserv.utoronto.ca

Other Useful Information

Setting Digest Mode

You can request to have your messages sent in digest mode for a particular list. In digest mode, individual messages that would normally be sent throughout the day are combined into a single message and sent out just once. This is convenient if the list is a busy one, or if you just want to print all the daily messages and read them offline.

To set digest mode, send a message to: listserv@listserv.utoronto.ca

In the body of the message type:
set HHUC-L digest


Turning Off Mail Temporarily

You can temporarily suspend delivery of e-mail from a particular list if you will not be accessing your e-mail for a while (e.g., vacation, illness) and you don't want your e-mail inbox filled with many messages.

To turn off mail temporarily, send a message to: listserv@listserv.utoronto.ca

In the body of the message type:
set HHUC-L nomail


Resuming Delivery

When you know you will be checking your e-mail regularly again, you will want to resume delivery.
To resume delivery, send a message to: listserv@listserv.utoronto.ca

In the body of the message type:
set HHUC-L mail
