NYMONROE-D is for a digest of several accumulated messages to be delivered to your e-mail address.

The digest is generated approximately once a day and delivered to digest subscribers. This option is handy for people who don't want multiple messages to accumulate in their mail box. The disadvantage is that it is more difficult to respond to any individual poster. To subscribe send an e-mail message to: NYMONROE-Dfirstname.lastname@example.org with one word in the body of the message: subscribe

If you get weird messages from the server then first try to change or turn off signature lines sent by your e-mail program. Signature lines are those lines added to the bottom of every mail message. The program that relays messages to members on the list has trouble with some rows of non-alphabetic characters. Sometimes just changing the signature lines will work. If that does not work you will have to turn off signature lines.
