Subject:      Too Much Mail

Hello SASlers,

the number of mails on SAS-L list which are not interesting for everybdoy is very big. This is not a special problem of SAS-L. Therefore on other lists there is an option to restrict the topis of mails a user will receive. It works like this:

* The listserver offers a list of topics which are diskussed on the list. * Every user who does not want to get all mail has to tell the listserver in which of this topics (s)he is interested in. * Everybody who posts the list has to include some of the topic keyword in the subject line of his/her posting.

An exampe of this is the windows95 list:

>From: "L-Soft list server at PEACH.EASE.LSOFT.COM (1.8b)" > <LISTSERV@PEACH.EASE.LSOFT.COM> > >> SET WIN95-L TOPICS: -BACKUP -BUGS -HARDWARE >Your subscription options have been successfully updated. Here are the exact >settings now in use for your subscription. Please take a few moments to >check that this is indeed what you wanted. > >Subscription options for Ludger Hinners <lhinner@GWDG.DE>, list WIN95-L: > >MAIL You are sent individual postings as they are received >FULLHDR Full (normal) mail headers (formerly "FULLBSMTP") >NOREPRO You do not receive a copy of your own postings >ACK Short e-mail acknowledgement of successfully processed > postings >NOFILE You do not receive a copy of NJE files sent to the list > >The topics you subscribe to are: Apps, Desktop, Comm, Exchange, Msn, >Network, Wish, Other >

For SAS-L the following topis could be taken into consideration:
