HOW does one SEND a MESSAGE to IDMS-L?

A subscriber’s message is distributed to IDMS-L’s subscribers by sending mail
to IDMS-L@LISTSERV.IUASSN.COM. This is called "sending
to the list," because you send mail to a single address and LISTSERV
copies for all the people who have subscribed.

The list’s distributions options are set to reject traffic from non-subscribers.
This may result in some "false" rejections of traffic from a
subscriber whose network address has changed. Instances of this nature will be
handled on a case by case basis. This configuration option, as well as the daily
traffic limit of 15 messages, was implemented to assist in the prevention of
various types of mailer loops.

When IDMS-L is used in the address, the text of your message will be
to ALL IDMS-L subscribers. The message is then in the "public domain"
and the potential for redistribution/retransmission is almost limitless.
Exercise caution and be certain that you are sending your message to the
appropriate address.


You may leave the list at any time by sending a "SIGNOFF IDMS-L"
