[RCSE] subscribing

I seem to have been unsubscribed at the new year.
I have tried resubscribing but I am not getting
messages sent to me. I am able to post though.
Any idea what I need to do?

The list is closed, meaning that messages from non-subscribers get
queued. MikeL goes through the queue now and then and posts the
messages.

If you subscribe, and get a message about already being subscribed,
then there is no problem. If you can't get the list server to
accept your subscribe message, then as a last resort try sending a
note to MikeL and ask him to subscribe you.

NE1...

I just got a call from a new guy who wants to teach his 10-year old to
build and fly.
He mentioned an Oly II kit from Whytes wings. Is this kit or short kit
still available?
Also. to get him hooked up to RCSE, Please tell me just ONE more time:
How does one subscribe to the DIGEST version of RCSE?
Thanks

No one answered this yet? Go to
<http://www.eclipse.net/~mikel/rcse/rcse.htm> and about mid-way down the
page is a link to the "digestified" version of RCSE. It says to send an
email to "soaring-request@airage.com" with "subscribe soaring digest" as
the first line in the message. Subject of the message is irrelevant.

Is it necessary to subscribe to RCSE to contact another guest user? I would like to contact Peter about the Extreme he is selling in the other thread.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=490366

He requested that interested parties contact him by email but he did not post his email address. I have tried many times to subscribe to the RCSE but have had no success.

Thanks

I just went to the RCSE archive:
http://www.mail-archive.com/soaring@.../maillist.html

I scrolled down until I found the for sale post that you referred to and
clicked on it to get this post:
http://www.mail-archive.com/soaring@...msg100991.html

Scroll down to the bottom of the post and click where it says to send an
email to Peter and you get an email window with his email adress:
<peter@d-m-c.com.tw>

I don't think you need to subscribe to do that. You just need to know the
link for the RCSE archive.

Thanks for the info Phil. That doesn't work for me either. I did manage to contact the guy, but I had to call a friend of mine who is subscribed to get the email info. I have only had a computer for a couple of years, and with what I have learned in that time I can't figure out this whole RCSE thing at all. Seems like there are quite a few hidden tricks to learn. Both of my friends that I contacted about this that are subscribed told me that they wish that they could figure out how to get themselves unsubscribed because it sometimes fills up their mail boxes but they don't know how.

RCGs is much easier to deal with!!

Re: subscribing

>From the RCSE web site:

Subscriptions
This list is managed by an automated mailing list management program
called Post.Office. To be added to this list, simply send a message with
the form:

subscribe

by email to soaring-request@airage.com. Make sure you turn off MIME and
HTML formatting and put subscribe in the first line of the message. You
can request additional information by sending a message with the line
"help" and learn about the commands the mailing list understands.

To remove yourself from the list, send a message to
soaring-request@airage.com containing

unsubscribe


Also from the footer to the digest message version of RCSE


Please note that subscribe and unsubscribe messages must be sent in text
only format with MIME turned off. Email sent from web based email such
as Hotmail and AOL are generally NOT in text format



If you have trouble with email based lists, you probably need a "real"
email program. A very good free one is Thunderbird from www.mozilla.com.

Lots of people that use a web mail interface supplied by their ISP can
actually use a "real" email program instead. Check your ISP's support
web site or shoot them a mail or even a phone call. It is quite likely
they can tell you how to set it up.

If you are using Hotmail or Aol, you will need this extension to
Thunderbird (You need the extension because these web based mail
programs use non standard email interfaces)
http://webmail.mozdev.org/index.html
It also works for mail.com, Yahoo mail and a couple of others. It
claims to work for gmail, but I know my son uses gmail through
Thunderbird without needing the extension. There is setup help at the
webmail site to walk you through a Hotmail setup.

If you are a Hotmail user, you can also get a semblance of a "real"
email program by using Outlook or Outlook Express. Not as good as
Thunderbird, but they will get the job done. Outlook and OE will work
with Microsoft's non standard Hotmail inteface.

Thank you very much for the help, but with my level of experience with computers that all went right over my head. I am on AOL and it is easy to use and works very well for me except in this one situation. Some day I will understand why experienced computer pros dislike AOL so much. RC Groups is easily accessible for me and is AOL friendly, so I will spend my time there but I may look around here every once in a while even if I can't subscribe.

My experience with soaring-request@airage.com processor is that it needs
a valid command in the first line. I have a habit to start e-mails with
few empty lines, so they look better in my mailer and have hard time
remembering what to do, every time I need to contact list processor.

Re: Re: subscribing

In particluar, it is best to add a line with just

end

to make sure signatures don't get confused.

How To Communicate with RCSE using AOL:

There are a lot of good points in this thread, but the main one is left out. To send a TEXT ONLY message using AOL, which you have to do to subscribe or unsubscribe to RCSE, and which you should also use when posting on RCSE to avoid having your message followed by several onscreen meters of gibberish that readers have to scroll through (while grinding their teeth), just RIGHT CLICK on the message box when you are composing the email and SELECT "Compose As Plain Text" at the bottom of the list that comes up. That's all there is to it.

That's it ! Two simple clicks and I'm in.

Thank you very much for your help. It was a very simple thing, but only if you know about it
