PCTechTalk was born with one specific idea in mind.
Helping people get the most out of their computer systems. Our
members can easily ask computer questions or discuss any computer problems
they're having. If you're not already a member, click on the word join
and a blank email message will automatically open. Just click on
your email program's Send button it to start your subscription. Not
only will you learn a ton about how to fix those annoying headaches your
computer likes to share with you, you'll also learn more about about how
to get the most out of the programs you use everyday.
To subscribe or make subsequent changes to your email
settings, just enter your email address, choose the setting in the drop
down box and click on the Go button. You need to already be a member
to use any setting other than Subscribe.
While some members may
experience difficulty getting around the FreeLists web site (it's not as
intuitive as it could be), there are others that simply don't have web
access (such as those using PIMs and cell phones for their email needs).
For this reason, here's how to manually change your PCTT subscription
settings using nothing more than an email message (it's the same concept
as using PCTechTalkfirstname.lastname@example.org
to sub to the old list). Using the email methods below, there's no
need to worry about logins/passwords (one of the benefits of Freelists is
that there is no need to login to make changes to email settings or having
to sort through a list of commands that are not list specific as this has
proven to be too difficult for some).
To receive Both Individual Emails and Digest at the same address: email@example.com
with the subject of "set digest2" (without the quotes)
(handy for those who like to keep digests for reference and be able to
read the individual emails as they are sent)
To set to No Mail/Vacation mode: firstname.lastname@example.org
with the subject of "set vacation" (without the quotes)
Be advised freelists has an automatic vacation return that is set for 14
days after a "set vacation" command is received.
You will get a list of all the flags currently set on your account (your
email settings) as well as recent posting information such as how many
posts you have submitted and list traffic your posts have created.
This is especially useful to verify that subscription changes have taken
Also helpful is:
with a subject of "lists".
A list of lists hosted by the server will be returned to you. This
is very helpful to find other lists you may want to subscribe to.
with a subject of "which".
You will receive a list of Freelists lists to which you are currently subscribed.
