Re: I want out!
There must be some entrenched attitudes here. I don't see why
people want to punish others for not understanding the syntax
of a command that most people never use.
I must admit that the neatest trick I've seen is that used by egroups:
sending *anything* to the address
would unsubscribe from debian-user. I would add an extension: sending
*anything* to the address
would unsubscribe from all Debian lists.
Quoting USM Bish (email@example.com):
> mail -s unsubscribe firstname.lastname@example.org < /dev/null
> mail ................ the program used to send mail
> -s ................ send switch for mail
Well, strictly, this is wrong. -s indicates that the next
argument is the subject line for the email.
> unsubscribe ......... subject
BTW I read this list on Vaxmail and then Pine for W3.1 for about a year.
