Who the List Serves: Those who provide assistance to the business community and individuals in Region 8 including state and local governmental agencies, educational institutions, non-profits, tribal agencies, and county extension agents.
Purpose of the List: to stimulate discussion about regionally interesting and pertinent pollution prevention related topics and facilitate partnerships among agencies undertaking similar efforts.
What is a ListServe?
A list serve acts as message redirector for a group of subscribers. A message posted by any member automatically transmits to every other subscriber. The service is free but you must subscribe.
How to Subscribe
Subscription is a one-time task and is accomplished by sending an e-mail message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The message must contain the following text on the first two lines:
The subject line is ignored by the list server. Please note that listserv is spelled with no final "e".
The subscriber will receive a message confirming that the subscription has been processed. The message will contain instructions for posting to the list and signing off the list.
Only subscribers may post messages to the list. To post to the list, send an e-mail message to: Region8P2@listserv.montana.edu . Upon receipt of the message the list server will resend it to all subscribers of the list. Note: If you reply to a message posted on the list, it will go only to sender of the original message. If you would like your reply to go to the whole list, you must choose "reply to all" within your email program.
The following commands can be e-mailed to email@example.com:
unsubscribe Region8P2 - to remove yourself from the list
set Region8P2 nomail - to remain on the list but stop mail delivery
set Region8P2 mail - to resume mail delivery
The commands must be entered in the body of the mail message starting at the first line. The commands must be followed by the word quit on the next line of the message so that any additional text in the message body, like a signature, will be ignored.
If the list serve is experiencing some problem, do not send messages to the list. This may increase the problem. If you are not sure if the list administrator is aware of the problem, send an email to one of these two addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or owner-Region8P2@listserv.montana.edu
Only subscribers may post messages to the list. If you are a
subscriber and your message is being rejected, this may be because the e-mail address from which you are posting is different
than the address from which you initially subscribed. You may run into the same problem if you use a POP-mail client such as Eudora or Netscape. In such cases, when you set up the mail client, you specify the name and address by which the list server identifies you as a subscriber. Each POP-mail client refers to the return address in different terms. Somewhere in the setup, preferences, or options screen of each of these clients is a field in which you specify the address that the recipients of your messages see as your return address. If you
try to post a message with an e-mail address other than the one the list server saw when you
subscribed, your posting will be rejected.
If you receive an error message in response to a posting attempt, take the following steps to resolve the problem:
To unsubscribe from this list, use the email address you were originally subscribed with and send the following message to Region8P2@listserv.montana.edu:
