Send your one-liners to email@example.com. REPLYING -------- If you are replying to a message already on the AES list using your mail programs reply facility you may have to change the reply address to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is because the AES mailing list program is configured to have return replies sent the author in order to avoid receiving the replies of misconfigured "vacation" programs which automatically send email saying "I've gone to the moon for two weeks to hunt rare bits". ARCHIVES -------- Monthly back issues of aes since July 1998 are available from: ftp://suburbia.net/pub/mailinglists/aes You can also instruct the mailing list processor to automatically scan and retrive messages from the archive. It understands the following commands: get filename ... ls directory ... egrep case_insensitive_regular_expression filename ... maxfiles nnn version Aliases for 'get': send, sendme, getme, gimme, retrieve, mail Aliases for 'ls': dir, directory, list, show Aliases for 'egrep': search, grep, fgrep, find Lines starting with a '#' are ignored. Multiple commands per mail are allowed. Setting maxfiles to zero will remove the limit (to protect you against yourself no more than maxfiles files will be returned per request). Egrep supports most common flags. Examples: ls vomume96 (for aes digest) ls latest (the latest directory containes the archived messages) get latest/12 egrep some.word latest/* TECHNICAL --------- The list processor software is based on the excellent Procmail/Smartlist by Stephen R. van den Berg <email@example.com> with some minor extensions by Julian Assange <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
