For those of you who feel as there is too much mail on the list..try this
novel approach. Have your CuSeeMe mail come to you in Digest form. Then
instead of getting 20 messages through out the day, you get one message a
day with all 20 included. Here are some simple instructions:

Pretty simple.....!

Still too much to read? Only want to know when there is an event or a
software upgrade... try switching to the ANNOUNCE list......:

You will find the digest command works with most mailing lists. Just insert
the appropriate list name that you want to set to digest, eg..Set
CU-SeeMe-L MAIL DIGEST becomes
Set radardish-L MAIL DIGEST to set the mailinglist radardish to the digest
format.

Hope this helps all those with too much mail. Just think of all those
isolated people who never get any mail, or the Bosnians who don't even get
dinner. Having too much seems to be a small problem for most of the
world....
