SignWriting List
April 9, 2010

Once we get the administrative information about the new Listserve Software, then I can show you a way to direct your emails from the SignWriting List into a special folder on your computer, so you do not have to have them coming into your regular email...there are ways to do just what you describe below...for example, there is a command called "No-Mail" in which you receive NO messages from the List in your email box, and then when you want to, on your own leisure time, you can access the web Archives for the List to read all the messages - or you can choose Digest form and only get one email a day, which combines all the emails for one day into one message...

So there are ways to work with ListServe software to get the results you want -

Val ;-)

I prefer to read forum postings for their nice and user-friendly interface than those quoting mishmash in emails :-)
