LISTSERVs, which replaced the old “majordomo” system several years
ago, allow NCI at Frederick employees to subscribe
to e-mail lists that pertain to specific topics. Once subscribed, you will receive all messages submitted to that
list and then you can converse directly, via regular e-mail, with the individual who posted the message. When
an e-mail is sent to a list, it is reviewed, approved, and then LISTSERV automatically distributes the message
to all list subscribers. There are currently five LISTSERVs specifically related to the NCI at Frederick as follows.
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the following text in the message body:
Subscribe Listname Your name
To send mail, or "post," to a list, address your e-mail message to:
set listname nomail
To restart your mail, send the following message:
set listname mail
