Managing your list subscription, was test

Thanks, Mary Sue. That is exactly what I was trying to do to stem the
deluge. It did stop the flow but, when I attempted to send a message, it did
not show up at the PBS archive until I re-enabled the function that stopped
the flow. I checked the archive simply by looking sequentially instead of
using the titles. That's easy when you know that what you've just posted is
one of the last few messages. 

Anyhow I am back to where I was. Maybe the deluge will let up.

It is always possible to set your subscription to nomail and just look at
messages from the archives. Setting to nomail does not prevent you from
posting. You can do this here:

This is the way you also can stop the list emails from coming when you are
going to be away and then start them again when you come back.

 From this same screen you can click on archive to look at the current posts
and if you find a message you'd like to address, if you click on reply it
will open a message in your email program. You can access this directly

In the recent onslaught of messages people didn't always change the subject
heading when they changed the subject however, so if you just look at the
title in the subject or the thread, it doesn't always fit the message.

This is the new improved archive that David Pilling has spent a lot of time
creating. You can still access the old standard version:
This allows you to download a whole month at a time. Some of the messages
don't display properly in this interface however and you can't search it as
you can in the archive David created just for our list. David is constantly
improving things for us and we are very lucky to have his help.
