This poor list has been jammed with pointess messages where the memory
challenged attempt to unsubscribe or ask how to unsubscribe.There have also
been those who feel it incumbent upon themselves to announce to the world
that they *intend* to unsubscribe. There have even been letters of undying love
from one subscriber to another...

I prescribe the following:

The &*#*#&#&#&!!!@@ing Instructions:



You are now a subscriber to the CU-SEEME-L mailing list.

Please save this message for future reference, because it contains
information you will need on managing your list subscription and for
obtaining documentation and assistance.

Your subscription address
Your subscription address for this list has been recorded as:
To be recognized as a valid subscriber, you must send all your
postings and administrative commands from that address.

Posting to the list
To send mail to all other list subscribers, use this address:
Be sure to use this address ***ONLY*** when you want to send mail to
EVERYONE ON THE LIST. Do not use this address to issue administrative
commands, described in the next section.

Submitting administrative commands
You have control over certain aspects of how you get mail from the
list. This control is exercised via the submission of adminstrative
commands directly to the "mailing list server", the machine/program
that implements mailing lists at Cornell. The mailing list server is
known as "listproc", and any administrative request must be sent to
the server at this address:
Please note that mail sent to this address is processed by a machine,
not a person. See the section on "Who to contact with problems"
for information on how to reach a real person.

The section below on "Getting documentation" explains how to obtain a
description of the various administrative commands that may be issued.

Your subscription password
Your password for this list is:

This password applies only to this particular mailing list. You will
need to use this password only when you need to change your
subscription address, or if you wish to remove yourself from all lists
maintained by the Cornell Mailing List server via a single command.

You may change this password, but note that mailing-list passwords are
not secure. You should therefore not select the same password you use
for logins, network identifiers, or other secure systems.

Getting documentation
For details on changing passwords and for a full description of all
features and commands of this mailing-list system, send mail to:
containing this single line of text:

A document tailored specifically for Cornell mailing lists is also
available. It is called "How to Use Mailing Lists" (How To-61), and

A second source of assistance is the Cornell mailing list manager, who
oversees the running of the mailing list server. To reach the
manager, send mail to:

The above material applies to all mailing lists maintained by Cornell.
What follows is additional information provided by the owner(s) of the
CU-SEEME-L list.

You have been added to the CU-SeeMe-L mailing list, whose purpose
is an unrestricted discussion of the CU-SeeMe packet video software
under development by the Cornell CU-SeeMe project and its colloborators.
Mail sent to:

will be redistributed to all list members. The developers and project
management all read the list. Please be sure to send to this address ONLY
when you want your message redistributed. As this list goes to over 500 people
(July 1, 1994), please note that bugs should be reported to

Before you send requests for more info, please ftp to, cd
to pub/video, download any FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) files and read,
cd to the appropriate Mac or PC directory, and download the latest file with
README in its name. You can also get the software from this server.

Also, as this list can have quite a bit of traffic, consider unsubbing (see
and subscribing instead to CU-SEEME-ANNOUNCE-L which will have only announcments
from the developers and a modest ammount of other information. Everything that
goes to ANNOUNCE will go to this general list also; don't subscribe to both! To
change to the announce list, send the following message body:

unsub cu-seeme-L
subscribe cu-seeme-announce-L <first-name> <last-name>

(from the SAME address you used to subscribe to cu-seeme-L.)


This is an automated list; you may perform various list operations (such
as un-subscribing, reviewing list membership, and changing your
distribution options) by typing commands into an e-mail message and
sending that message to

Please note the difference between the address for list commands and the
address for message redistribution. Again:

To send commands about the list, send to:

Users may choose from among certain options regarding how listserv
will interact with them. To change these options, you must send a
command in electronic mail to (once again, NOT to, saying:


where 'option' can be one of:
NOACK -- Do not send me my own postings back
ACK -- Send me my own postings back
DIGEST -- Send me a periodic digest of postings
or POSTPONE -- Do not send me *anything* until I change back to
one of the other three.

For example: SET CU-SEEME-L MAIL DIGEST would cause you to start
getting digests. Note that the word "MAIL" is required.

The default for all lists is NOACK.

To leave the list at any time, send the command

to (DON'T send it to the list itself!)
