Donald, it is thanks to your early efforts (in prying
enough info out of 3COM to get the original Vortex
driver working) that I have been enjoying my 3c900
(and my new 3c905) for over 3 years now without a
Ironically, however, I have been trying to escape from
this listserver for the last two of those years with
absolutely no success. This seems to be related to
the identification string that VMS mail sent to the
majordomo long ago when I signed up; it probably had
some local node name in front of the "triumc.ca" in
"email@example.com" or else it pays attention to the
other junk I used to have as a verbose identifier.
Whatever the problem, my repeated attempts to quit
have been unsuccessful despite my following your
detailed howto advice. I am now certain that this
will have to be done "manually" by a person with
privileges allowing interference with the majordomo.
I'd rather not solve this problem just by putting
firstname.lastname@example.org on my blacklist; none of us
benefits from wasting internet bandwidth.
Please help, or forward my plea to someone who can.
Thanks -- Jess
