The ASLM Mailing List

ASLM is different from most newsgroups in that we also have a mailing list version of the group. The mailing list was originally started when we began the moderated version of the newsgroup. It took awhile until everyone's Internet provider picked up the new group, so we used the mailing list to make sure that everyone who wants to take part in ASLM can get all the messages.

These days, some women subscribe to the mailing list because their provider's new server misses a lot of the messages. Others use it because they get messages faster via email than they do over Usenet. And a lot of us use the mailing list if the ASLM server is having problems.


So How Do I Get on the Mailing List?

To subscribe, just send an email message to majordomo@lists.panix.com. Don't put anything in the subject line of your message, but put the following in the message body:

subscribe aslm

That's all. You will start getting all of the same messages that appear in the newsgroup.


What If I Don't Want to Get a Jillion Emails per Day?

We also offer a digest version of the mailing list, which sends you a couple dozen messages at a time, one or more times a day. (Usually, there are three or four digests in a day.) To subscribe to the digest, send an email message to majordomo@lists.panix.com. Leave the subject line of your message blank, but put the following in the message body:

subscribe aslm-digest


Ok, I'm Subscibed; Now What?

To post to the mailing list, send your message to:

alt-shoe-lesbians-moderated@panix.com

If you need to leave the mailing list, send a message to:

majordomo@lists.panix.com

Don't put anything in the subject line, but type the following in the message body:

unsubscribe aslm

You will be unsubscribed immediately.

If you have questions about anything related to the ASLM mailing list or the Usenet newsgroup, please get in touch with the moderators at aslm+request@panix.com.
