** Ecartis Help File **
By Rachel Blackman, JT Traub and Ryan T. Dean

TO GET A LIST OF LISTS:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "lists".  A list of lists hosted by the server will be returned
        to you.

TO SUBSCRIBE TO A LIST:

        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server (you can just
        reply to this message).  In the subject field, enter "subscribe
        [listname]".  Or, you can send a message to "[listname]-request"
        with a subject of "subscribe".

TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server (you can just
        reply to this message).  Enter "unsubscribe [listname]" in the
        subject field.  You can also send a message to 
        "[listname]-request" with a subject of "unsubscribe".
        While you should NOT send your unsubscribe command to the list
        itself, Ecartis will attempt to trap such erroneous postings and
        forward them to the list administrators for proper handling.

TO GET A DIGEST EVERY DAY:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] digest".  This will turn on digests, and you
        will receive a digest however often the server is configured to
        send them.

TO STOP GETTING A DIGEST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "unset [listname] digest".  This will turn off digest mode, and
        instead you will receive an eMail every time something is posted
        to the list.

TO GET A DIGEST AND NORMAL POSTS:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] digest2".  This will activate digest mode with
        normal posting.  As each message is posted to the list it will be
        sent to you, and you will receive a digest as well.  This flag
        should be used INSTEAD of digest, NOT IN ADDITION TO.
        To stop receiving digests in addition to normal posts, send a
        message to the ecartis account with a subject of "unset [listname]
        digest2".  You will go back to receiving normal posts.

TO FIND OUT WHO IS ON A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "who [listname]".  You will receive a list of people subscribed
        to the list who are not hidden.  Admins will be able to see
        everbody, including those hidden.

TO HIDE ON A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] hidden".  You will no longer appear on WHO
        queries to the listserver.  No one (except Admins) will know you
        are subscribed to the list unless you post to it (in which case
        those people on the list will know you posted if nothing else).

TO STOP HIDING ON A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject 
        of "unset [listname] hidden".  You will then show up on WHO
        queries to the listserver.

TO GO ON VACATION:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] vacation".  You will remain subscribed to the
        list but will not receive any eMail as long as this flag is set.
        To come back from vacation, eMail the ecartis account with a
        subject of "unset [listname] vacation".

TO CHECK ON YOUR OWN STATUS:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "stats [listname]".  You will get a list of all the flags
        currently set on your account.

TO GET A LIST OF FLAGS AVAILABLE:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "flags".  An eMail will be sent to you with the available flags
        that you can set on your account.

TO GET A LIST OF COMMANDS AVAILABLE:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "commands".  An eMail will be sent to you with all the commands
        that the server and any installed modules offer.




 To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to
bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.  To get a list of 
available commands, put the word 'help' by itself in the subject line.
