How Invalid Commands are Handled

When Lyris sees an invalid command, it takes note, and moves to the next line. If more than ten lines in an email message are invalid, the message processing stops.

For example, if a subscribe request is sent to Lyris, but the subscriber leaves their "signature footer" on the message, Lyris will recognize and correctly process the subscribe command, and then take note that the signature footer does not make up valid Lyris commands. In such a case, the person will be subscribed to the mailing list, and an email message will be sent to the person indicating which commands were successfully processed, and which lines in the email message did not appear to be Lyris commands.
