I'm forwarding a copy of the instructions I received upon joining the
list (it's been awhile, but as far as I know they are still valid).

***
If you ever need to leave the list, you will find the necessary
instructions below. Perhaps more importantly, saving a copy of this
message (and of all future subscription notices from other mailing
lists) in a special mail folder will give you instant access to the list
of mailing lists that you are subscribed to. This may prove very useful
the next time you go on vacation and need to leave the lists temporarily
so as not to fill up your mailbox while you are away! You should also
save the "welcome messages" from the list owners that you will
occasionally receive after subscribing to a new list.

To send a message to all the people currently subscribed to the list,
just send mail to [log in to unmask] This is called "sending mail
to the list," because you send mail to a single address and LISTSERV
makes copies for all the people who have subscribed. This address
([log in to unmask]) is also called the "list address." You must
never try to send any command to that address, as it would be
distributed to all the people who have subscribed. All commands must be
sent to the "LISTSERV address," [log in to unmask] It is very
important to understand the difference between the two, but fortunately
it is not complicated. The LISTSERV address is like a FAX number that
connects you to a machine, whereas the list address is like a normal
voice line connecting you to a person. If you make a mistake and dial
the FAX number when you wanted to talk to someone on the phone, you will
quickly realize that you used the wrong number and call again. No harm
will have been done. If on the other hand you accidentally make your FAX
call someone's voice line, the person receiving the call will be
inconvenienced, especially if your FAX then re-dials every 5 minutes.
The fact that most people will eventually connect the FAX machine to the
voice line to allow the FAX to go through and make the calls stop does
not mean that you should continue to send FAXes to the voice number.
People would just get mad at you. It works pretty much the same way with
mailing lists, with the difference that you are calling hundreds or
thousands of people at the same time, and consequently you can expect a
lot of people to get upset if you consistently send commands to the list
address.

You may leave the list at any time by sending a "SIGNOFF SCHOOL-IT"
command to [log in to unmask] You can also tell LISTSERV how you
want it to confirm the receipt of messages you send to the list. If you
do not trust the system, send a "SET SCHOOL-IT REPRO" command and
LISTSERV will send you a copy of your own messages, so that you can see
that the message was distributed and did not get damaged on the way.
After a while you may find that this is getting annoying, especially if
your mail program does not tell you that the message is from you when it
informs you that new mail has arrived from SCHOOL-IT. If you send a "SET
SCHOOL-IT ACK NOREPRO" command, LISTSERV will mail you a short
acknowledgement instead, which will look different in your mailbox
directory. With most mail programs you will know immediately that this
is an acknowledgement you can read later. Finally, you can turn off
acknowledgements completely with "SET SCHOOL-IT NOACK NOREPRO".

Following instructions from the list owner, your subscription options
have been set to "REPRO" rather than the usual LISTSERV defaults. For
more information about subscription options, send a "QUERY SCHOOL-IT"
command to [log in to unmask]

Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can get
a list of the available archive files by sending an "INDEX SCHOOL-IT"
command to [log in to unmask] You can then order these files with a
"GET SCHOOL-IT LOGxxxx" command, or using LISTSERV's database search
facilities. Send an "INFO DATABASE" command for more information on the
latter.

This list is available in digest form. If you wish to receive the
digested version of the postings, just issue a SET SCHOOL-IT DIGEST
command.

Please note that it is presently possible for other people to determine
that you are signed up to the list through the use of the "REVIEW"
command, which returns the e-mail address and name of all the
subscribers. If you do not want your name to be visible, just issue a
"SET SCHOOL-IT CONCEAL" command.

More information on LISTSERV commands can be found in the LISTSERV
reference card, which you can retrieve by sending an "INFO REFCARD"
command to [log in to unmask]

I seem to have lost my instructions on how to join and disjoin the
list-serv.



Can anyone forward them?



Thanks,

Paul
