You can access a world of mailing lists, organized
around a specific topic, through the Internet.
How Do mailing lists work?
Each mailing list has two email addresses:
administrative address and list address.
Administrative address is for you to subscribe
(get on the list) and unsubscribe (get off the
list). The List address is for communicating to
the other members of the discussion group.
When you send email to this address, it gets
distributed to everyone else on the list.
How to “get on” a mailing list?
Subscribing to mailing lists is free-
just send an email message to the
“subscription address.” Leave the
subject line of your message blank.
In the message box type:
Ex: Subscribe ENGL-SL Nicole Huang
How to “get off” a mailing list?
If you want to remove yourself from
the list, you will need to
“unsubscribe”. The process varies
from list to list; but generally, you’ll
need to send a message with the
word” unsubscribe” followed by the
name of the list and your email
address to administrative address,
not to the list address.
Ex: Unsubscribe ENGL-SL Nicole
