General Information

Use informative subject lines -- When posting a new message to a list, try to use a meaningful subject line. For example, "Help: I can't send stuffed files" instead of "Need Help!". Also, when replying to a message from a digest, try to use the subject of the original message as opposed to simply "Re: Digest..."

When you subscribe to a list, you should keep the instructions containing the rules of the list and the unsubscribe information.

Don't send your unsubscribe message to the list. It's not the list that manages this function. Many lists posts the unsubscribe info in the body of the message and others post this info in the long headers. If you absolutely can't find the instructions, then ask the list politely for the correct procedure.
