Diskusny server list at
Bezi na systeme BSD & Majordomo

Pokial si pokrocily uzivatel diskusnych serverov pozri si sumarny
popis prikazov uvedeny na konci tohoto mailu.

Majordomo je plne automatizovany system umoznujuci prihlasovanie,
odhlasovanie sa do diskusnych skupin. Mimo to podpruje archivaciu
vsetkych prispevkov zaslanych do diskusnych skupin a ich spatne
zasielanie pomocou emailu.

Komunikacia s Majordomo programom je zabezpecena cez specialny eMail,
vsetko uvedene v tele listu je akceptovane ako prikazy, ktorych vysledok
je automaticky zaslany odosielatelovi. Prikazy uvedene v "subject line"
akceptovane nie su!

Jeden email moze obsahovat samozrejme viac prikazov, ktore musia byt
uvedene na separatnych riadkoch.

Pokial pouzivas podpis a vlozis ho do emailu pre list at
bude chapany ako sekvencia prikazov. Viac menej to cele vyprodukuje
maximalne chybovu hlasku "prikaz neznamy" i ked Murphy by povedal nieco
uplne ine... Aby to vsetko nebolo take cierne, aj tomuto sa da zabranit
akurat to chce upravu podpisu... prvy riadok podpisu musi zacinat
znakom "-" (pomlcka). Alternativa dva je po sekvencii prikazov zaradit


ktory nasilne ukonci spracovavanie prikazovej sekvencie.
Nasleduje zoznam niekolkych moznosti, vyuzivania Majordomo programu:


To get a list of publicly-available mailing lists on this system, put the
following line in the body of your mail message to list at


Each line will contain the name of a mailing list and a brief description
of the list.

To get more information about a particular list, use the "info" command,
supplying the name of the list.  For example, if the name of the list 
about which you wish information is "demo-list", you would put the line

	info demo-list

in the body of the mail message.


Once you've determined that you wish to subscribe to one or more lists on
this system, you can send commands to Majordomo to have it add you to the
list, so you can begin receiving mailings.

To receive list mail at the address from which you're sending your mail,
simply say "subscribe" followed by the list's name:

	subscribe demo-list

If for some reason you wish to have the mailings go to a different address
(a friend's address, a specific other system on which you have an account,
or an address which is more correct than the one that automatically appears 
in the "From:" header on the mail you send), you would add that address to
the command.  For instance, if you're sending a request from your work
account, but wish to receive "demo-list" mail at your personal account
(for which we will use "jqpublic at" as an example), you'd put
the line

	subscribe demo-list jqpublic at

in the mail message body.

Based on configuration decisions made by the list owners, you may be added 
to the mailing list automatically.  You may also receive notification
that an authorization key is required for subscription.  Another message
will be sent to the address to be subscribed (which may or may not be the
same as yours) containing the key, and directing the user to send a
command found in that message back to list at  (This can be
a bit of extra hassle, but it helps keep you from being swamped in extra
email by someone who forged requests from your address.)  You may also
get a message that your subscription is being forwarded to the list owner
for approval; some lists have waiting lists, or policies about who may
subscribe.  If your request is forwarded for approval, the list owner
should contact you soon after your request.

Upon subscribing, you should receive an introductory message, containing
list policies and features.  Save this message for future reference; it
will also contain exact directions for unsubscribing.  If you lose the
intro mail and would like another copy of the policies, send this message
to list at

	intro demo-list

(substituting, of course, the real name of your list for "demo-list").


Your original intro message contains the exact command which should be
used to remove your address from the list.  However, in most cases, you
may simply send the command "unsubscribe" followed by the list name:

	unsubscribe demo-list

(This command may fail if your provider has changed the way your
address is shown in your mail.)

To remove an address other than the one from which you're sending
the request, give that address in the command:

	unsubscribe demo-list jqpublic at

In either of these cases, you can tell list at to remove
the address in question from all lists on this server by using "*"
in place of the list name:

	unsubscribe *
	unsubscribe * jqpublic at


To find the lists to which your address is subscribed, send this command
in the body of a mail message to list at


You can look for other addresses, or parts of an address, by specifying
the text for which Majordomo should search.  For instance, to find which
users at are subscribed to which lists, you might send the


Note that many list owners completely or fully disable the "which"
command, considering it a privacy violation.


To get a list of the addresses on a particular list, you may use the
"who" command, followed by the name of the list:

	who demo-list

Note that many list owners allow only a list's subscribers to use the
"who" command, or disable it completely, believing it to be a privacy


Many list owners keep archives of files associated with a list.  These
may include:
- back issues of the list
- help files, user profiles, and other documents associated with the list
- daily, monthly, or yearly archives for the list

To find out if a list has any files associated with it, use the "index"

	index demo-list

If you see files in which you're interested, you may retrieve them by
using the "get" command and specifying the list name and archive filename.
For instance, to retrieve the files called "profile.form" (presumably a
form to fill out with your profile) and "demo-list.9611" (presumably the
messages posted to the list in November 1996), you would put the lines

	get demo-list profile.form
	get demo-list demo-list.9611

in your mail to list at


To contact a human site manager, send mail to Majordomo-Owner at
To contact the owner of a specific list, send mail to that list's
approval address, which is formed by adding "-approval" to the user-name
portion of the list's address.  For instance, to contact the list owner
for demo-list at, you would send mail to demo-list-approval at

To get another copy of this help message, send mail to list at
with a line saying


in the message body.

	Stop processing commands (useful if your mailer adds a signature).

Commands should be sent in the body of an email message to
"list at". Multiple commands can be processed provided
each occurs on a separate line.

Commands in the "Subject:" line are NOT processed.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact
"Majordomo-Owner at".
