Majordomo Use - Subscribe
You join a Majordomo list with the subscribe command:
Some lists send you an email after you subscribe asking
you to confirm your subscription to ensure that it is really

you can confirm the subscription by simply replying to the message
and sending it back.
Some lists require the list owner or moderator to approve your subscription.

Once you are subscribed you will receive an introductory
message that you should save for
future reference. If you lose this message you can get a copy with
