Subscription Instructions

The name of this list is sas-l (the letter l, not the number one).  It is headquartered at Georgia Southern University and managed by Barbara Hendry (email: bhendry@georgiasouthern.edu, phone: 912-681-5362).  It is also a moderated list, which means that your messages are previewed by the moderator(s) before they reach the rest of the list. If you have any questions, please contact Barbara.

I. To subscribe to sas-l:
  1. Open your email program and prepare to send an email.
  2. In the “To” box, type in:
    listserv@georgiasouthern.edu
    (Note that there is no “e” at the end of listserv)
  3. Leave the subject box blank.

  5. Press “Send.” You will get a confirmation by email that you have been subscribed to the list.

Please Note: Members of a list can only reply or post messages to a list with their email address that they used when they subscribed to the list. Any other email address will be rejected by the listserv.

For Example: When you initially subscribed to a list, you used the email address “jdoe@gasou.edu.” A month later, you changed your email address in your email program from “jdoe@gasou.edu” to “jdoe@georgiasouthern.edu.”

The list will not recognize the new email address because it is not the one you used when you initially subscribed. Also, if you try to send a message to the list from someone else’s email account (or your Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.), the listserv will not recognize you. When you send messages, they must be sent through an email program with your subscription account.
