  I don't think that the author of the following will mind me reposting
it here.  There is a new listserv group for phycologists that replaced a
fairly new e-newsletter called Algal News.  Algal News had >180 subscribers,
if I remember correctly, even though it was new within the last year.

Dear Colleague:

Some people have experienced difficulties signing on to ALGAE-L, the public
list that replaced Algal News and which will in future distribute messages of
common interest to phycologists who subscribe.  Please note that I cannot
subscribe on you behalf and that you must follow this procedure:


Send a mail message to  LISTSERV at IRLEARN.UCD.IE  [please note that it is NOT
"LISTSERVER" but "LISTSERV"] with no subject heading and the single line:
SUB ALGAE-L followed, on the same line by your first name and your second name
[please note that it is NOT "ALGAL-L"].


Send a mail message to  LISTSERV at IRLEARN.UCD.IE  [please note that it is NOT
"LISTSERVER" but "LISTSERV"] with no subject heading and the single line:


This will result in your being sent a list of all the current members that have
subscribed to ALGAE-L.


To send a message to all the people currently subscribed to the list, just send
your mail message to ALGAE-L at IRLEARN.UCD.IE.  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. Be sure to include your e-mail
address at the end of any such message. Try not to send frivolous messages as
people will rapidly signoff the list and its effect will be diminished.

Please contact me directly if you have any further difficulties.
