Date: 20 Jun 1998 18:40:14 -0000 From: Julian Assange <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: AUcrypto mailing list With things starting to heat up here in Australia (DoD/DSD has recently taken to making some exceptionally nasty noises about prosecuting Eric Young, Tim Hudson and the rest of the Australian CryptoMozilla team). I'd like to remind everyone who's interested in aussie/nz crypto issues of the aucrypto mailing list. _ _ _ ____ ______ ______ _____ ___ / \ | | | |/ ___| _ \ \ / / _ \_ _/ _ \ / _ \| | | | | | |_) \ V /| |_) || || | | | / ___ \ |_| | |___| _ < | | | __/ | || |_| | /_/ \_\___/ \____|_| \_\|_| |_| |_| \___/ Australasian & Pacific Cryptography mail the word "subscribe" to email@example.com or mail the word "subscribe" to firstname.lastname@example.org (AUCRYPTO weekly digest) WHEN YOU HAVE SUBSCRIBED ------------------------ Send in a brief synopsis of who you are and why you are interested in AUCRYPTO as your first message to the list (this helps to stimulate discussion and debate as well as provide a sense of the AUCRYPTO community). As a [small] example: "Hello AUCRYPTO! My name is Sara Harding. I'm a technical services officer working at the AFP (Australian Federal Police), specialising in cryptogrpahic issues." SUBSCRIBING ----------- Send mail to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (AUCRYPTO digest) with the subject or body of: subscribe UN-SUBSCRIBING ------------- Send mail to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (AUCRYPTO digest) with the subject or body of: unsubscribe aucrypto POSTING ------- To send a message to the list, address it to: email@example.com Messages under 700 bytes in size will not be accepted. Send your one-liners to firstname.lastname@example.org. REPLYING -------- If you are replying to a message already on the AUCRYPTO list using your mail programs reply facility you may have to change the reply address to email@example.com. This is because the AUCRYPTO 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 aucrypto since January 96 are available from: ftp://suburbia.net/pub/mailinglists/aucrypto 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 aucrypto 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 <firstname.lastname@example.org> with some minor extensions by Julian Assange <email@example.com>.
