Subscribing to lists

To subscribe to a list, you can either :

  • Send an email message to sympa@newcastle.ac.uk . In either the Subject: line or in the body of the message (it doesn't matter which), you should type :
    SUBSCRIBE listname yourname
    where listname is the name of the list you wish to subscribe to, and, yourname is your first and last name. If your mail client adds a signature to the end of your messages, you should place a QUIT command at the end of the message. For example :
    From: "Joe Bloggs" <joe.bloggs@newcastle.ac.uk>
    
    To: sympa@newcastle.ac.uk
    Subject: 
        
    SUBSCRIBE newusers Joe Bloggs
    QUIT
        
    will subscribe the e-mail address joe.bloggs@newcastle.ac.uk to the newusers mailing list. You will then be sent a further email asking you to confirm your subscription.
  • Log in to the web interface. Find the list you wish to subscribe to, and click on "subscribe".
