Listserv offers many options for managing the behavior of the lists to which you are subscribed. One of the most popular settings is Digest Mode. When it is activated for your subscription, Listserv collects all the messages sent to that list and sends them to you in a single message that contains a table of contents followed by the full text of each message. (NOTE: Extremely active lists may result in two or more digest messages.) On the day you activate Digest Mode, you will receive a partial digest that contains only those messages sent after the point at which you activated this feature. Each day thereafter, you will receive a full digest of all the messages sent during the 24 hour period since the last digest message.
All of Hamilton's mass mailing lists (e.g. events-all, notices-facutly, etc.) allow you to choose Digest Mode. The digest message for these lists is sent each day at 4:30 p.m.. Private lists (those for student organizations or departments) are sent at midnight by default. The list owner can change the time at which the digest is sent. List owners can contact Debby Quayle at 859-4031 (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance changing the time at which digests are sent from private lists.
The easiest way to manage your Listserv subscription is through the Listserv web interface. Before you can use it, however, you must have a Listserv password. It will allow you to manage your own subscription(s) as well as manage any lists you may own. If you already have a password, you can proceed to the steps below.
