Moderated list - Report for February 1999

Microbiology List micro-moderator at LIPID.SALK.EDU
Sun Mar 7 12:56:59 EST 1999


Dear Listers,

I am pleased to tell you that the moderated Microbiology List, a 
spam-free mirror of the BIONET.MICROBIOLOGY newsgroup, was a great 
success. For the past three weeks, about 100 messages were sent to 
BIONET.MICROBIOLOGY. Thirty or so messages were unrelated, and all 
were successfully filtered out. As of today, we have 17 subscribers 
already, and I hope that we can improve on the numbers here.

Best wishes,

Martin Latterich, Ph.D.
BIONET.MICROBIOLOGY Discussion Leader


-----------------

We have established a moderated mailing list that will mirror all 
appropriate postings from the BIONET.MICROBIOLOGY newsgroup. I 
suggest that everybody who is disturbed by SPAM or irrelevant 
messages should subscribe to this list instead of the BIONET mailing 
list. The moderators and I will forward all relevant messages at 
least twice a day. If you want to reply to the messages you 
receive,your reply will also appear on the BIONET.MICROBIOLOGY 
newsgroup.

To subscribe to this mailing list, please send an e-mail from your 
regular e-mail account to

subscribe at lipid.salk.edu

with

subscribe micro-list

in the body of the e-mail message. It is important you mail this 
message from the account you wish to receive the mailing-list 
messages from. If you wish to cancel your subscription, please send 
an e-mail from the same e-mail account to

subscribe at lipid.salk.edu

with

unsubscribe micro-list

You can also subscribe in digest mode. You have to FIRST subscribe to 
the list (see above), and THEN send the command

SET micro-list DIGEST

in the body of your message to the list-processor at

subscribe at lipid.salk.edu

Please note that while we will make any effort to filter out 
inappropriate messages, we cannot guarantee that this list will 
always be spam free. We also take no responsibility for any newsgroup 
postings to be lost in the moderation process, although we will do 
everything possible to avoid this.

If you rather want to receive all messages, we encourage you to 
remain subscribed to the bionet.microbiology newsgroup or obtain your 
news with a news-reader client.
