how to unsubscribe from the echoes list
all subscription matters are handled by an automated subscription server,
"echoserv", which has a mailing address of its own,
separate from the list.
to unsubscribe, you must send an unsubscribe command in the body of a mail
message to "echoserv" and not to the list -- all the latter approach
really does is anger folks.
the proper syntax is:
echoserv will only look for commands inside the body of a message, the
subject does not matter.
so you see, it is normally a simple task to unsubscribe from echoes.
once you done that and mailed it to the server, all you should need to do is
wait for the confirmation by return mail.
should there be some difficulty getting unsubscribed, please drop a
polite note to firstname.lastname@example.org -- the list manager.
please note that while the server is a constantly running automaton which
will speedily attempt to process your commands, the list manager is not
so prompt due to other mundane distractions such as food, sleep, and
your patience is appreciated.
