Unsubscribing from a Listserv Discussion List

You can either remove yourself permanently from a LISTSERV list or you can temporarily suspend mail from a LISTSERV list. In either case, you need to first log onto the system you used to subscribe to the list.

To permanently remove yourself from a list, send mail to LISTSERV at the nodeid of the list with the following one line as the body of the mail:

signoff listname

The "listname" is the name of the list from which you wish to be removed.

To temporarily suspend mail from a list, send mail to LISTSERV at the nodeid of the list with the following one line as the body of the mail:

set listname nomail

To resume mail, send the same one-line message and change "nomail" to "mail".

Examples (fictitious list and nodeid):

If the name of the list is:

money-l

and the nodeid is:

dolu.cc.cac.edu

You would permanently remove yourself from this list by sending mail to:

listserv@dolu.cc.cac.edu

with the following one line in the body of the mail:

signoff money-l

To temporarily suspend mail from this list, you would send mail to the same address and include the following one line in the body of the mail:

set money-l nomail
