2. Scroll down the page or use index at top to find listserv that you wish to join.
3. Click on the name of the listserv and a screen will open with that Listserv’s Home Page
4. In the Options box in right hand margin, click “Subscribe or Unsubscribe”. You will be taken to this screen. This screen allows you to subscribe or unsubscribe to the list. To confirm your identity and prevent third parties from subscribing you to a list against your will, an email message with a confirmation code will be sent to the address you specify. Simply wait for this message to arrive, then follow the instructions to confirm the operation.
Note you can subscribe as a Regular or Digest subscriber.
With a “regular” subscription, you receive individual postings immediately as they are processed by LISTSERV.
Digest (Traditional), Digest (MIME format), Digest (HTML format)
With a “digest” subscription, you receive larger messages (called “digests”) at once per day. These “digests” are collections of individual list postings. Digests are a good compromise between reading everything as it is posted and feeling like the list is clogging your mailbox with a multitude of individual postings.
There are three digest formats: a “traditional”, text-only format; a MIME format, which (with mail clients that understand MIME digests) “bursts” the individual messages out of the digest so that you can read them separately; and an HTML format, which requires an HTML mail clients.
