In the body of the message, say Subscribe hash-l Paul Flying Booger Woodford (use your own name, dummy).

This should normally be the last message you'll receive from email@example.com. From this point on, you will receive all messages posted to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can post your own messages to same. To post, just send mail to email@example.com. Please do use the subject line on messages to hash-l! You may get as many as 50 hash-l messages daily. If the high volume of messages posted to hash-l is too much for you, you can switch to digest mode. In digest mode, you'll get one long message daily containing all the individual posts to hash-l. To switch to digest mode, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again, you do not need to enter anything in the subject line. In the body of the message, say set hash-l mail digest. Here are a couple of other useful subscriber commands (remember, subscriber command messages go to email@example.com, not firstname.lastname@example.org: - To find out who is currently subscribed to hash-l: review hash-l. - To unsubscribe: unsubscribe hash-l. - To switch back from digest mode to normal mode: set hash-l mail.
