Administrative requests to the mail server relevant to XML Daily Newslink:
- Help. For help and a description of available commands, send a (blank) email message to email@example.com.
- Subscribe. To subscribe to the list, send a (blank) email message to firstname.lastname@example.org. The mail server will send an email response asking you to confirm your subscription request.
- Unsubscribe. To remove your address from the list, just send a (blank) email message to the address in the 'List-Unsubscribe' header of the list message, which should be email@example.com. If you have changed addresses since subscribing, or have arranged for the use of email aliases, you may need to send an 'unsubscribe' command containing the actual email address of record. This action is explained in the mail system 'Help' message returned to you when you request Help. Briefly: if your (real) subscriber email address of record is firstname.lastname@example.org, you would need to send an 'unsubscribe' command like this, substituting your own email userID [for 'john.doe'] and domain [for 'example.com'] in the proper slot: email@example.com
- Confirm. A security/authenticity transaction. For address addition (subscription) or removal (unsubscribe), the mail server will send a confirmation message to your address. When you receive it, simply reply to the confirmation request to complete the transaction. Usually this means "hit reply"; if asked whether you wish to return mail to the "Reply-to:" address rather than to the Sender, say 'yes'.
- Contact a human. If you need to get in touch with the human owner of this list, please send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
