Changing your subscriber options

Your subscriber options can vary from a list to another. To change them, do as follows:

  1. Go to the list environment homepage and log on.
  2. Go to the information page of the list for which you want to change your subscriber options.
  3. In the left menu, click on the 'Subscriber options' link.
  4. Choose a message delivery mode (those options are mutually exclusive, thus you can not select several of them):
    • digest MIME format: instead of receiving the list messages in a normal manner, you will get a digest of them on a regular basis. This digest compiles a group of messages from the list, using multipart/digest MIME format. The digest frequency is set up by the list owner.
    • digest plain text format: instead of receiving the list messages in a normal manner, you will get a digest of them on a regular basis. This digest compiles a group of messages from the list, using plain text format. The digest frequency is set up by the list owner.
    • summary mode: instead of receiving the list messages in a normal manner, you will get a list of them on a regular basis. To read the messages, you will need to browse the online list archive.
    • notice mode: with this mode, you will receive all the messages with a blank body: this way you are informed of every message sent to the list real time, without risk of flooding your inbox.
    • no mail (useful for vacations): this mode makes it possible not to receive the messages of the list. It is especially useful when you have no access to your email for a long time and want to remain subscribed to the list nevertheless.
    • text only mode: this mode allows you to receive only the text version (text/plain) of messages sent in both formats (plain text and HTML).
    • HTML only mode: this mode allows you to receive only the HTML version (text/html) of messages sent in both formats.
    • urlize mode: this mode allows you not to receive attached documents. However these documents are available in the list archive and you can access them through a URL provided in the message.
    • you do not receive your own posts: this mode allows you not to receive a copy of your own messages.
    • standard (direct reception): this mode is the default delivery mode; it cancels any other delivery mode.
    • suspended: this mode allows you to suspend your subscription to one or more lists for a specified or unspecified period. Unlike unsubscription, you can keep track of your subscription and reactivate it at any time by visiting the "Manage your subscription" section.
  5. Choose a visibility option:
    • listed in the list review page: your name and email address will be displayed in the members list (if the list owner allowed subscribers to review the list members).
    • concealed: your name and email address will not be displayed in the members list. However you email address will be visible in the list archive if you send messages.
  6. Click on the 'Update' button.
