Subscribing to a list

There are two mechanisms you can use to subscribe to a mailing list:

  2. or if you don't know the name of the list then you can browse through all the lists by clicking on Index of lists in the top menu called Search for List(s) and then click on the list you wish to subscribe to
  3. Once you have found the list you want to subscribe to click on Subscribe from the menu on the left to subscribe to the list
  4. then click the I subscribe to list <listname> button
