                     Vrf And Vrf-Digest Instructions
         Please save the following information for future reference. 

* The VEE email reflector (vrf) is an electronic "user group" that allows VEE
users to trade email with each other.  Each user can send an email message to
a central address and have it resent to everyone on the list.

You can subscribe or unsubscribe to the list by sending email to the address:

The message must contain a text command indicating what you want to do.  The
simplest request is to subscribe to the vrf, and the only text needed is:

   subscribe vrf

This will suscribe you to the using the "reply" address on your email.  Once
you have subscribed, then you can send email to the address:

-- and it will be sent over the vrf.  Subscription and unsubscription
requests should not be sent to this address.  You can similarly unsubscribe
from the vrf by emailing "vrf-request" with:

   unsubscribe vrf

A digest of vrf correspondence is also available, where the correspondence is
accumulated until 1,000 lines of text or three days pass, and is then sent
out.  You can subscribe to both or either of the "vrf" or "vrf_digest".

You subscribe to the digest with the message:

   subscribe vrf-digest

-- and unsubscribe with:

   unsubscribe vrf-digest

By the way, the acknowledge message for these two commands will make a
reference to "list vrf".  Disregard, this is just a peculiarity of the
maillist software, things are working.

If you want to subscribe to a different address than the one in the
"reply-to" field of your message, you can specify the address for
subscriptions and unsubscriptions.  For example, if your address is
"" then you can specify commands of the form:

   subscribe vrf
   subscribe vrf-digest
   unsubscribe vrf
   unsubscribe vrf

If you specify an address in this way, the list administrator will have to
approve the subscription.  This prevents people from accidentally signing
up "vrf" to itself, which leads to an endless loop, or playing pranks by
signing up people who know nothing about the vrf.

Please keep your messages short, and if you absolutely must enclose a VEE
program please make sure it is very small so as to not clutter people's
