How to Join SOCNET
SOCNET will be sent to the address you used to send the SUBSCRIBE message, so you should send this message from the email address you want to receive SOCNET. If you send it from someone else's address, they will receive SOCNET and you won't.
The LISTSERV software will add your name and email address to the list, and send you back a message confirming your membership. If you do not receive a confirmation message, contact email@example.com.
Changing your SOCNET AddressIf you want to change your address with SOCNET, you must first send a SIGNOFF SOCNET command (see the Leaving SOCNET instructions) from your old address (the one you used to join SOCNET), and then SUBSCRIBE from your new address.
Using SOCNETOnce you are subscribed, to send a message to all SOCNET subscribers, just send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also want to try out the web interface. It allows web surfers to see an up-to-the-minute view of the archives/logs of any list whose archives/logs are "Public" (lists which have "Open" subscriptions typically have "Public" archives/logs).
If you experience any LISTSERV-related problems, please report them via email to: email@example.com.
