Re: Mongolian Study Tour to North America

No action was taken on your mail by this listserver.  Your address is not
listed as a subscriber, and no commands were found in your message.


Please read the list guidelines (see below) before engaging in discussion. 
In addition, familiarize yourself with how the list operates, especially if 
you've never participated in an Internet email discussion group before.  
It's a good idea to save this message somewhere so you know how to 

When dealing with a listserver, there are two types of messages, namely,  
COMMANDS and POSTS. Unlike traditional listservers which require the 
use of numerous email addresses, we have simplified the process by 
allowing for both both COMMANDS and POSTS to be sent to the same address.


These e-mail messages are intended to cause some action to occur, such as
subscribing the FROM address to a mailing list.  Commands are usually one or
two word phrases which should be entered in the SUBJECT field of the message. 
Any other fields are ignored... it doesn't matter what you put in them.  On
this list,
subscribe commands are sent to a moderator for approval.

The following commands are accepted:

    forwards your request to a moderator for approval
    you will then receive all posts as they are received
    you are then allowed to post from that address
    removes your e-mail address from the list of subscribers
    you will no longer receive any posts
    you are no longer allowed to post

subscribe digest
    switches you to digest mode
    you will then receive one message per day which lists all posts
    to switch back, send a "subscribe" command
	returns a list of digests for the past 30 days along with 
	instructions for retreiving them via e-mail

    this message will be returned


Email messages which don't match any commands are distributed to everyone on
the list. 
Every time you post a message, hundreds of other people on the list receive a
copy, just as if you sent it to them personally.  As a member of the list, you
will receive a copy of every message anyone else sends.  On this list, only
members of the list can post to it.
