You Are Now Subscribed Message:

As soon as your "Subscribe" command has been accepted and confirmed, you will get the following message from the server:

Your subscription to the SCOUTS-L list (SCOUTS-L - Youth Groups Discussion List) has been accepted.

Here is some important information about your new subscription, which we recommend that you preserve for future reference. Having this information available will make it easier to recognize all the lists to which you are subscribed and in case you want to unsubscribe or temporary disable mail delivery.

Perhaps more importantly, saving a copy of this message (and of all future subscription notices from other mailing lists) in a special mail folder will give you instant access to the list of mailing lists that you are subscribed to. This may prove very useful the next time you go on vacation and need to leave the lists temporarily so as not to fill up your mailbox while you are away! You should also save the "welcome messages" from the list owners that you will occasionally receive after subscribing to a new list.

  • The name of the list: SCOUTS-L
  • Thee LISTSERV host name: SCOUTS-L.COM
  • Your subscribed address: "yourname" <youraddress>

The following email addresses are used for the specified purposes:

The following URLs may also be useful:


If you do not already have a password for the SCOUTS-L.COM server, we recommend that you set one now. A LISTSERV password is linked to your subscribed address ("yourname" ) and is valid for all lists to which you are subscribed on the SCOUTS-L.COM server. The same password can be used for email commands as well as for access to the web interface for the lists to which you are subscribed.

To set your password for this server, visit:


Subscription settings and preferences can be set using LISTSERV's web interface. Once you have set a server password as explained above, you may log in and set your preferences at:

Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can access the list archives at:

You may need to log in to view the archives.


You may leave the list at any time by sending a SIGNOFF SCOUTS-L command to: LISTSERV@SCOUTS-L.COM, or by sending a blank email to: SCOUTS-L-signoff-request@SCOUTS-L.COM.

You can also tell LISTSERV how you want it to confirm the receipt of messages that you send to the list. To send yourself a copy of your own messages, send a SET SCOUTS-L REPRO command.

Alternatively, to have LISTSERV send you a short acknowledgement instead of the entire message, send a SET SCOUTS-L ACK NOREPRO command. Finally, you can turn off acknowledgements completely with the SET SCOUTS-L NOACK NOREPRO command.

This list is available in digest form. If you wish to receive the digested version of the postings, then issue a SET SCOUTS-L DIGEST command.

You can also set the digest delivery option on the list subscription page at:

Following instructions from the list owner, your subscription options have been set to "NOACK NOFILES REVIEW REPRO" rather than the usual LISTSERV defaults. For more information about subscription options, send a QUERY SCOUTS-L command to LISTSERV@SCOUTS-L.COM.

You may also check your current settings on the list subscription page at:

More information on the tools and options available for list subscribers may be found in the official L-Soft online documentation at:

This message will be followed almost immediately by the Welcome to Scouts-L letter.
