SET csgnet DIGEST
WHAT IS THIS?
iF WE’RE VOTING, WHY CHANGE?
I’ll resend. Just changed my subscriber options to
“standard (direct reception)” from “not receiving
your own posts” which appears to be the default. This way this

Alice, I meant to follow Matti’s suggestion for how to set my CSGnet mail
from the server to Digests. For that email address. Should have put it in
the subject line, though.
I have long had two subscriptions, one for Digests
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and one for individual messages
That way I generate two archives, one where I occasionally delete a post
that is mistaken, duplicate or totally irrelevant as when we were

options, such as Subscribe.
So subscribing is easy indeed.
I have notes about my password, but the server insisted that I set a new
one. I took the opportunity to change the firstname.lastname@example.org address
to another that will not get mixed up with our translation mailboxes any
I happen to be one of the (five?) owners from way, way back. Once I have
logged in, I have options to administer CSGnet. I have toyed with the
idea of sending individual test messages (from a personal email account)
to all subscribers in order to determine how many subscribers have
non-existent addresses or such. Invalid addresses would bounce back to me
with error messages. There are about 20 who have set “no mail”.
These are likely long gone.
I agree with Matti’s arguments in favor of staying with the current
Hope this is helpful. Golden wedding anniversary party now history. We
had guests here for two weeks. See
Best to all,
