'Too many messages? Try the Digest option.'

Dear Pic Programmers,

This post has nothing to do with PIC programming per se, but it
may make your life and your mailer happier.  I hope it is useful.

The list server we are using is very powerful!  Put the following command
on the subject line (for good measure, also put the same command in the
body of the message) and send to the _listserver_ (_not_ the pic list).
You will get a bunch of commands you may use to manage the mail you get
from the list server.  All this is explained in the sign-on message we
all received.  The mail header would look something like:

To: spam_OUTLISTSERVTakeThisOuTspammitvma.mit.edu
From: your reply email address
Subject: INFO  REFCARD
Message: INFO  REFCARD

Admittidly the list received is a little cryptic.  The one command I find most
useful is the 'Digest' command.  What this does is aggregate a full
day's list server messages into a single email.  It also puts a summary
at the top of the aggregate message.  So, instead of 20 or so messages, you
only get one.  To do this, all you have to do is send the following message.

To: .....LISTSERVKILLspamspam@spam@mitvma.mit.edu
From: your reply email address
Subject: SET PICLIST DIG
Message: SET PICLIST DIG
