Subscribing with the listname-request address

The public domain list server "majordomo" uses a "" address, and Lyris supports this convention for backward compatibility.

When sent to the listname-request address, any of the following subscribe syntaxes are acceptable:

    subscribe password
    subscribe your name
    subscribe your name password
    subscribe password your name

All these ways of joining a mailing list equivalent. It is up to you which method you decide to tell your users to use. There is no Best Way, just a way that you are most comfortable with.

The quiet modifier

If you add the word "quiet" to the subscribe command, Lyris will not send a confirming message back, unless the subscription fails for some reason. For instance, for a list called "jazztalk", you could join it with this command:

    subscribe jazztalk quiet
