Re: question about temporarily unsubscribing


your welcome.  The reason its better to go nomail is that has a requirement that owners can’t change, that when someone subscribes, their first message must be approved.  So for all the groups you would have left, the first message you sent to every one would have needed to be approved and that might have led to annoying delays in some cases.

Thank you so much.  I will be gone for a week and didn't want to come back with a cluttered in-box.  I greatly appreciate your help.

To go nomail for this group, you would send a blank e-mail to this address:
To resume delivery, send a blank e-mail to
If you want to resume delivery as a digest, there are other commands but I assume you want single message delivery.
The same syntax isw used with other groups.  Name of group plus etc.

Subject: [TechTalk] question about temporarily unsubscribing
        Hi Group:

I'm going on vacation tomorrow and I was wondering if there is a way to
unsubscribe from the lists I am on until I get back?  I will be gone for
a week and I get a load of mail per day and won't be able to check it. 
So if possible, I would like to temporarily unsubscribe if there is a
way to do this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
