I have tried to sign-off but I am still getting messages.

There are a number of possible reasons why you might still be getting mail from the list:

  1. You could be subscribed under a different, but equivalent address. For instance, if your e-mail address as it appears in the ‘From:’ line of messages coming from you has the misfortune of depending on the distance between your workstation and the terminal room door, you were probably subscribed from a different address and, while your mail system knows that the two addresses are equivalent, LISTSERV has no way to know that. In this case the only thing you can do, beyond contacting the list owner, is to send a “REVIEW CQCList” command to find out under what address you are subscribed, and try to duplicate it with the help of your user support people.
  2. If you are a BITNET user, you might be subscribed under your Internet address and sending this command via BITNET, or vice versa. Most BITNET sites have registered their Internet addresses in the BITNET nodes database, BITEARN NODES (the “tag” containing this information is called ‘:internet’ – if you do not understand any of this, just bring a copy of this message to your user support people). Unfortunately, some sites have still not done that, and in such cases LISTSERV has no way to determine that, for instance, BITNET node XYZCOL1 is the same as Internet host VM3.XYZ.EDU. If you suspect this might be your problem, try resending your request via both interactive message (SEND under VMS, TELL under VM) and e-mail.
  3. You might be subscribed under an equivalent yet different address – for instance, one with explicit gatewaying, or an X.400 address with different ordering of the various components, etc. You could send a “REVIEW CQCList” command and inspect the list membership to find out whether this is the case, and ask the list owners to remove that address from the list.
  4. You could be subscribed to the list under another account, from which mail is being automatically forwarded to your account. In that case you should be able to leave the list by resending the signoff request from the account in question.
  5. You could be subscribed to the list indirectly, via a “redistribution” list. That is, one of the subscribers to the LISTSERV list is in fact a mailing list, to which you are yourself subscribed (note that this “sub-list” is not necessarily managed by LISTSERV and, in fact, such lists are often manually maintained, in which case the only way to leave the list is to contact the person who maintains it). Since you are not directly subscribed to CQCList, the only way for you to stop getting the postings is to contact the administrators of this sub-list and ask them to sign you off.

How do I get more information about commands?

Write to listserv@lists.microbiologynetwork.com and, in the text of your message (not the subject line), write: “HELP” or “INFO” (without the quotes). HELP will give you a short help message and INFO a list of the documents you can order. Go to Top of Page
