 Announcing Mosquito-L, the mosquito mailing list
==================================================

This electronic mailing list is provided for the discussion of topics
related to mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae). The goal is to support open
communication among persons interested in mosquitoes by providing an
easily accessible means of information exchange. Anyone with internet
access can subscribe.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

behavior                     bionomics
ecology                      control
general biology              legislative/regulatory issues
mosquito-borne diseases      physiology
pathogens                    sampling methods
systematics

The number and kinds of topics will largely be determined by the list's
subscribers.

The list owner of Mosquito-L is John VanDyk of Iowa State University
<e-mail: jvandyk at iastate.edu>;  <world-wide web: 
http://www.public.iastate.edu/~jvandyk>. Mosquito-L uses Majordomo
software.

HOW DO I SUBSCRIBE TO MOSQUITO-L?
---------------------------------
Send an e-mail message to MOSQUITO-L-REQUEST at IASTATE.EDU with the word
SUBSCRIBE in the body of the message. The subject field will be ignored.
If your e-mail program automatically adds your signature to the end of
your message, put the word END on a separate line after the word
SUBSCRIBE.

HOW DOES AN ELECTRONIC MAILING LIST WORK?
-----------------------------------------
Basically, the heart of an electronic mailing list is a computer that
knows who is on the list. When the computer receives a message, it sends
the message to everyone on the list. For example, a message sent to the
address <Mosquito-L at iastate.edu> will be sent to everyone who is currently
subscribed to the Mosquito-L mailing list.

DOES IT COST ANYTHING?
----------------------
There are no charges associated with Mosquito-L. Subscribing to Mosquito-L
simply puts your name on the list of people who will receive messages sent
to the list. 

DOES IT MATTER IF I USE UPPERCASE OR LOWERCASE?
-----------------------------------------------
No. Mosquito-L, mosquito-l and MOSQUITO-L all look the same to the computer.

HOW DO I POST A MESSAGE TO MOSQUITO-L?
--------------------------------------
Once you are subscribed to Mosquito-L, sending a message to
MOSQUITO-L at IASTATE.EDU will send your message to all the subscribers on
Mosquito-L.

I CAN'T SEEM TO SUBSCRIBE TO MOSQUITO-L!
----------------------------------------
If your SUBSCRIBE message to Mosquito-L-request at iastate.edu is returned,
check to make sure that you have the address spelled right. If it is
spelled right, wait a day or so and try again -- it is possible that we
might be experiencing network problems. If, after repeated attempts, you
cannot subscribe, send e-mail to John VanDyk (jvandyk at iastate.edu) and we
will try to solve the problem.
