List Commands

Back to GZG Mailing Lists Page

The three main lists support one set of optional commands and the GZG-Computer list (hosted elsewhere) supports a slightly different list of commands. Both are outlined below for your convenience. The examples use GZG-L but remember to insert the correct name for the list you are accessing!

You must send your commands in the body of a mail message. Subject lines in mail messages are ignored. The command must be placed in the body of the e-mail and e-mail signatures should be suppressed or disabled to ensure the list server functions correctly. The commands are case insensitive.

Multiple commands can be processed in the same message, however you must put each command in the correct syntax on its own line.
