ListServ and ChatRoom
is a ListServ?
A ListServ is an electronic mailing list. By subscribing to a ListServ,
you will be in touch with others having similar interests. ListServ
provides a forum for discussion.
The Internet provides thousands of discussion groups via e-mail by
allowing users to place themselves on electronic mailing lists.
These mailing lists are maintained by software such as LISTSERV or
Majordomo. The software automatically distributes an e-mail message from
one member of a list to all other members on that list.
When you subscribe to a list, your name and e-mail address is
automatically added to the list. You will receive a standard letter of
welcome (via e-mail) telling you about the list. From that time on, you
will receive all mail (postings) sent to the list by its members. You may
follow the discussions or join in on them. If you respond, you can send
your response to all members of the list or to an individual on the list.
You can signoff (unsubscribe) from a list at any time. You can also get a
listing of all the members of a list and their e-mail addresses.
