Your  subscription to  the PICLIST  list (pic  microcontroller discussion
list) has been accepted.

Please save this message for future  reference, especially if you are not
familiar with LISTSERV.  This might look like a waste  of disk space now,
but in  6 months  you will be  glad you saved  this information  when you
realize that  you cannot remember what  are the lists you  are subscribed
to, or  what is the command  to leave the  list to avoid filling  up your
mailbox while you are on vacations. In fact, you should create a new mail
folder for subscription confirmation messages  like this one, and for the
"welcome  messages"  from the  list  owners  that you  will  occasionally
receive after subscribing to a new list.

To send  a message to  all the people  currently subscribed to  the list,
just send mail to spam_OUTPICLISTTakeThisOuTspamMITVMA.MIT.EDU. This is called "sending mail to
the list", because  you send mail to a single  address and LISTSERV makes
copies   for  all   the  people   who  have   subscribed.  This   address
(.....PICLISTKILLspamspam@spam@MITVMA.MIT.EDU)  is also  called  the "list  address". You  must
never try to send any command to that address, as it would be distributed
to all the people  who have subscribed. All commands must  be sent to the
It is  very important to understand  the difference between the  two, but
fortunately it  is not complicated.  The LISTSERV  address is like  a FAX
number,  and  the list  address  is  like a  normal  phone  line. If  you
accidentally  make  your  FAX  call  someone's  voice  line,  the  person
receiving the  call will be annoyed.  If you do this  regularly, however,
your  victim will  probably  get seriously  upset and  send  you a  nasty
complaint. It  is the same with  mailing lists, with the  difference that
you are calling  hundreds or thousands of  people at the same  time, so a
lot more people get annoyed if you use the wrong number.

Bryan Hord ( quoted a page of text from the
"Welcome to the PICLIST" message, but left out the only sentence
that Daniel Bernando was interested in.  Here it is:
