JSAC Discussion List: jsac@tsuge.yorku.ca

Japan Studies Association of Canada [JSAC] has been running an E-mail discussion list called jsac to encourage people in Japanese Studies to communicate with each other more efficiently. It is run by a mailing list manager (listserv) program called majordomo on the tsuge server, the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, York University.

Majordomo is a perl script which automates the management of mailing lists. It is executed via electronic mail; users send e-mail to majordomo with instructions in the body of the message, and the perl script performs the requested actions and responds with the results. Any text in the "Subject:" line is ignored.

This program will allow you to; subscribe/unsubscribe from any of the tsuge lists, check which lists are available, manage your own list and much more.


**** please store these instructions for later use. ****

In the description below items contained in [ ]'s are optional <>'s are
