Subject:  Re: LIST CHANGES
The four AD&D lists will be changing form during today to an automatic digest
mode for all subscribers.

The lists here at Leicester for AD&D have seen a terrific upsurge in
activity in recent months. This has translated into the following:

DARK-SUN    245
PLANESCAPE  169
SPELLJAMMER 131
RAVENLOFT    54

as the number of messages during January. Taking Dark-Sun as an example, for
163 subscribers, that translates to 39935 messages sent out through our mail
gateway for one "non-University work" list that month.

So the upshot is to reduce that to 1 message a day in the form of an
automatically generated digest.

All subscriptions mail-modes will be changed today from ACK/NOACK to DIGEST
where appropriate.

Please note - to force the digests to be produced means disabling the SET
command for these lists. This means that the following options will be
unavailable:

SET listname ADDRESS
  - you must unsubscribe/resubscribe from your new address
SET listname MAIL ACK
SET listname MAIL NOACK
SET listname MAIL POSTPONE
  - temporarily suspend mail, You must now subscribe/unsubscribe instead.
SET listname PASSWORD
  - passwords are not needed any more
SET listname CONCEAL
  - It is now impossible for NEW users to set themselves concealed unless
they ask a moderator to do it.

If anyone has any questions. Please email me and I will answer them.

Sorry about the short notice.

Alistair.
