Your  subscription  to  the  ITU-SG16  list  (Mailing  list  for  parties
associated with ITU-T Study Group 16) has been accepted.

Please save this message for future  reference, especially if this is the
first time you subscribe to an  electronic mailing list. If you ever need
to  leave the  list,  you  will find  the  necessary instructions  below.
Perhaps  more importantly,  saving a  copy of  this message  (and of  all
future subscription notices  from other mailing lists) in  a special mail
folder will give you instant access to the list of mailing lists that you
are subscribed  to. This may  prove very useful the  next time you  go on
vacation and  need to leave  the lists temporarily so  as not to  fill up
your  mailbox while  you  are away!  You should  also  save the  "welcome
messages" from the  list owners that you will  occasionally receive after
subscribing to a new list.

To send  a message to  all the people  currently subscribed to  the list,
just  send mail  to ITU-SG16 at MAILBAG.INTEL.COM.  This is  called "sending
mail to the list", because you send mail to a single address and LISTSERV
makes  copies  for all  the  people  who  have subscribed.  This  address
(ITU-SG16 at MAILBAG.INTEL.COM) is also called  the "list address". You must
never try to send any command to that address, as it would be distributed
to all the people  who have subscribed. All commands must  be sent to the
"LISTSERV address",  LISTSERV at MAILBAG.INTEL.COM. It is very  important to
understand  the difference  between the  two, but  fortunately it  is not
complicated. The LISTSERV address is like  a FAX number that connects you
to  a machine,  whereas the  list  address is  like a  normal voice  line
connecting you to a person. If you make a mistake and dial the FAX number
when you wanted to talk to someone on the phone, you will quickly realize
that you  used the wrong  number and call again.  No harm will  have been
done. If on the other hand  you accidentally make your FAX call someone's
voice  line,  the  person  receiving the  call  will  be  inconvenienced,
especially if your FAX then re-dials  every 5 minutes. The fact that most
people will eventually connect the FAX machine to the voice line to allow
the FAX  to go through  and make  the calls stop  does not mean  that you
should continue to send FAXes to  the voice number. People would just get
mad at you.  It works pretty much  the same way with  mailing lists, with
the difference  that you are calling  hundreds or thousands of  people at
the same  time, and consequently  you can expect a  lot of people  to get
upset if you consistently send commands to the list address.

You  may leave  the list  at  any time  by sending  a "SIGNOFF  ITU-SG16"
command to LISTSERV at MAILBAG.INTEL.COM. You can also tell LISTSERV how you
want it to confirm  the receipt of messages you send to  the list. If you
do not trust the system, send a "SET ITU-SG16 REPRO" command and LISTSERV
will send you a  copy of your own messages, so that you  can see that the
message was distributed and did not get damaged on the way. After a while
you  may find  that this  is getting  annoying, especially  if your  mail
program does not  tell you that the  message is from you  when it informs
you that new mail has arrived from  ITU-SG16. If you send a "SET ITU-SG16
ACK  NOREPRO" command,  LISTSERV will  mail you  a short  acknowledgement
instead, which will  look different in your mailbox  directory. With most
mail programs you  will know immediately that this  is an acknowledgement
you can read later. Finally, you can turn off acknowledgements completely

Following  instructions from  the list  owner, your  subscription options
have been  set to "REPRO MIME"  rather than the usual  LISTSERV defaults.
For more information about subscription  options, send a "QUERY ITU-SG16"

Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can get a
list  of the  available  archive  files by  sending  an "INDEX  ITU-SG16"
command  to LISTSERV at MAILBAG.INTEL.COM.  You can  then order  these files
with  a "GET  ITU-SG16  LOGxxxx" command,  or  using LISTSERV's  database
search facilities. Send  an "INFO DATABASE" command  for more information
on the latter.

This  list is  available  in digest  form.  If you  wish  to receive  the
digested  version of  the  postings,  just issue  a  SET ITU-SG16  DIGEST

More  information on  LISTSERV  commands  can be  found  in the  LISTSERV
reference  card, which  you can  retrieve  by sending  an "INFO  REFCARD"
