The Simplest Method for Subscribing

It is often simplest to tell your users to use the Command-Listname address to join a mailing list. For instance, people can join a mailing list called "jazztalk" by sending email to

    jazztalk-join@clio.lyris.net

All the different aliases (sub, suscribe, subscribe, on, signon) can be used, and the Listname-Command@ order can be reversed. For instance, all of the following are equivalent:

    join-jazztalk@clio.lyris.net
    jazztalk-subscribe@clio.lyris.net
    jazztalk-sub@clio.lyris.net
    signon-jazztalk@clio.lyris.net

Lyris will automatically determine, by receiving the email, that the person wants to subscribe to a list called "jazztalk", and Lyris will automatically determine their email address and name.

Note: if your list is password protected, then users cannot use this form of subscribing, and must instead send mail to lyris@yourserver.com or send mail to listname-request@yourserver.com
