This file was written for CFS networkers to be a help reference about Internet, LISTSERV and Usenet. It can be used more easily by reading its web version at http://www.cfs-news.org/net-help.htm. For the most basic help about LISTSERV, it may only be necessary to read section 1-B.
Subject: Section 1: Mailing Lists and LISTSERV
Back to the top
Subject: Section 1-A: About LISTSERV
LISTSERV software automates many administrative tasks necessary to maintain lists. It relieves the list-owner from a great many time-consuming chores. Messages to be posted to a list for all to read should be sent directly to the list address, e.g., CFS-L@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG. However, requests for administrative changes to your list subscription, or to retrieve files of archived messages, etc., must be sent to the LISTSERV address (which in this example would be LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG) in the form of commands that LISTSERV understands. Sometimes people will accidentally send a LISTSERV command to a list address where it may be distributed to all subscribers, so please address your mail to LISTSERV carefully!
There are many sites that use LISTSERV software but most CFS resources are based at LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG. Messages that are replies *and* which quote an earlier message including the original mail headers will usually be rejected by LISTSERV if they include a Sender: line which points to the address of the list you are posting to. To ensure that your message gets posted, be sure to delete Sender: lines in any quoted text in your message. In any case it is a courtesy to readers to keep quoted material to a minimum.
If the advice in this guide is not sufficient, you may wish to contact the list-owners directly for help. They can be reached at standard email address which takes the form of (listname)-REQUEST@(nodename). For example, the list-owners' address for the CFS-L list would be CFS-L-REQUEST@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG.

Subject: Section 1-B: Common LISTSERV commands
In the text below, commands that LISTSERV will accept are initially shown with the minimum acceptable abbreviation in capital letters.
SUBSCRIPTION commands: SUBscribe; SET options; Query
To subscribe to a list, send a command in the following format to LISTSERV in an e-mail message: SUBscribe (listname) (your_first_name) (your_last_name). Example:
SUB CFS-L John Doe
You may later unsubscribe by sending the command: UNSUBscribe (listname). Example:
The SET command can set various options for your list subscription, and the Query command can view the status of your current SET options. To use the SET command, send a message by email to LISTSERV in the form of SET (listname) (option). For example, send to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG:
SET CFS-L DIGEST
Common SET options are as follows:
NOMail -- Temporarily suspends list mail to you (including DIGest and INDex delivery); handy if you'll be out of town and don't want list messages piling up at your address. This is also the proper setting for being able to post to alt.med.cfs without getting any e-mail.Query: To check which options as described above you currently have in place, send a command to LISTSERV in the form of Query (listname). Example:
e.g. SET CFS-L NOMAIL
Mail -- Cancels a setting of NOMail, restores either individual piece-by-piece mail, DIGest, or INDex delivery. (Sending this command while you are currently receiving DIGest or INDex delivery will switch you to individual messages.)
e.g. SET CFS-L MAIL
DIGest -- Has all messages sent as one large message, once per digest cycle so that you won't get every message individually. For CFS-L the cycle is once per day, or when post volume reaches 1000 lines, whichever comes first.
e.g. SET CFS-L DIGEST.
NODIGest -- Switches you from DIGest to individual messages.
e.g. SET CFS-L NODIGEST
INDex -- To get a list of messages but not the actual messages themselves; sent at the same time as the DIGest. The list of post descriptions includes the author, subject, and number of lines in the message. Messages that you select can be retrieved in full text by replying to the INDex and deleting the descriptions of posts you do not want to retrieve. Directions on using the INDex are included in each INDex.
e.g. SET CFS-L INDEX
NOINDex -- Switches you from INDex to individual messages.
e.g. SET CFS-L NOINDEX
TOPICS -- E-mail subscribers can adjust the topics they receive. To add topics use the format TOPICS +topic1 +topic2. To subtract topics use the format TOPICS -topic1 -topic2. To remove all topics except for the ones you specify, use TOPICS topic1 topic2. (Digest and Index subscribers must receive all topics.)
e.g. SET CFS-L TOPICS +OTHER +CHAT (adds OTHER and CHAT)
SET CFS-L TOPICS -MED -ADMIN (removes MED and ADMIN)
SET CFS-L TOPICS MED RES (removes all except MED and RES)
REPro -- You will receive a copy of messages you post, provided you subscribe to the topic you are posting to and receive individual messages.
e.g. SET CFS-L REPRO
NOREPro -- Turns off REPro
e.g. SET CFS-L NOREPRO
ACK -- You will receive a short acknowledgment notice via e-mail when your messages are successfully distributed to the group.
e.g. SET CFS-L ACK
NOACK -- Turns off the ACK message.
e.g. SET CFS-L NOACK
FULL -- Full mail headers.
e.g. SET CFS-L FULL
SHORT -- Makes message mail-headers briefer, less extraneous information to page through.
e.g. SET CFS-L SHORT
SUBJ -- Inserts a tag (typically the list name) to the subject line. For example the subject line in each message from CFS-L would begin with "CFS-L". Makes it easier to sort list mail from personal mail. To turn this off, send the command SET CFS-L FULL (or any other mail header option).
e.g. SET CFS-L SUBJ
DUAL -- Adds some header information (i.e. author, subject, and list name) to the message body. For those whose mail program doesn't display that information from normal message headers.
e.g. SET CFS-L DUAL
MIME -- Turns MIME digests on (digest may be easier to read). This is only useful if your mail client supports MIME digests.
e.g. SET CFS-L MIME
NOMIME -- Turns MIME digests off, you will receive digests with normal formatting.
e.g. SET CFS-L NOMIME
CONCEAL -- Your address will not be displayed to others who use the REView command. Many lists, including CFS-L, keep the subscription list confidential so you don't need to conceal your subscription. The REView command is described below in the file commands section.
e.g. SET CFS-L CONCEAL
The REView, INDex and GET commands enable you to retrieve useful information about a list, and any stored documents that relate to the list's subject matter.
The command REView (listname) will retrieve descriptive information about a list, including its definition, the identity and address of the list-owner, and a list of current subscribers. Recent abuses on the Internet have prompted many list-owners to keep their subscription lists confidential and so REVIEW may not always retrieve such lists.
The command INDex (listname) will show all files at the LISTSERV relating to the named list. Usually these will only be archives of the list's old messages. Sometimes the list-owner will also have other documents there. A few lists do not maintain an archive of previous messages.
The command GET (filename1) (filename2) will retrieve files saved on the LISTSERV, either archives or special documents. Every file has a two-word name. Most often, files of a list's archived messages will be grouped by month (like CFS-NEWS) or by week (like CFS-L). A monthly archive will have a filename in the form of (listname) LOG(2-digit-year)(2-digit-month) and a weekly archive will have a letter added at the end (either A, B, C, D or E) to identify a week. For example, the February 1997 archive for CFS-NEWS would be retrieved by sending the command
GET CFS-NEWS LOG9702
as an email message to address LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG. Or to get the CFS-L archive for the 2nd week of April 1997 you would send the command
GET CFS-L LOG9704B
To see what specific filenames are available, you can use the INDEX command as described above. When GETting logs or other files you can have the file split into a number of smaller files by adding a SPLIT= instruction to your GET command. For example to GET the same CFS-L log as in our example above but split into 50 kilobyte messages, send the command:
GET CFS-L LOG9704B SPLIT=50K
This is helpful for those whose provider limits the size of incoming
mail messages. You can adjust the size of the split to suit your needs.
The split command also works when GETting other files.
e.g. GET CFS FAQ SPLIT=50K
CFS information files are available from the St. John's LISTSERV at LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG, and from the Albany LISTSERV at LISTSERV@HEALTH.STATE.NY.US. For a discussion of those file facilities and some advanced LISTSERV file commands, see Section 3 below.
Other helpful commands
To get a selection of listnames on any LISTSERV where the name or description contains a certain keyword, send a command in the form of LISTS GLOBAL /keyword. Example:
LISTS GLOBAL /CFS
The command THANKs will generate a message which says "YOU're welcome!". This may be used to check whether all the network connections are in place between you and the LISTSERV and to be sure that the LISTSERV is up and operating.
A user's guide to LISTSERV 1.8c is available at http://www.lsoft.com/manuals/userindex.html. A complete list of LISTSERV commands can be found on the LISTSERV REFCARD and a detailed LISTSERV manual can be found as the LISTSERV MEMO document. These documents, and how to get them, are described in Appendix A below.

Subject: Section 1-D: SEARCHing and selecting old messages
You can have LISTSERV send you only selected messages of your choosing without having to retrieve whole files of monthly logs. Many LISTSERV lists that have archived messages can have those messages searched and selected. Consider the following example where we want to search the CFS-L archive for all messages containing the character string "ampligen":
SEARCH AMPLIGEN IN CFS-L
If you send the text above to the LISTSERV where CFS-L is based (i.e., LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG) you will get in return a listing of all CFS-L messages that contain the word "ampligen" (regardless of whether any of the letters are upper or lower case in the messages). Directions on how to retrieve the complete articles will be sent with the index of article hits. You can narrow your search further, some examples follow:
SEARCH DHEA IN CFS-L SINCE DEC 96
SEARCH FLORINEF IN CFS-L SINCE NOV 96 WHERE SENDER CONTAINS FEKLARA
The "SENDER CONTAINS" option can only search the sender's email address, not the sender's name. If the search string is longer than one line you must begin each line with a double forward slash followed by a space:
// SEARCH 'SIDE EFFECTS' IN CFS-L FROM 96/6/30 TO 96/11/15 ,
// WHERE SUBJECT CONTAINS FLORINEF
Note that a space followed by a comma at the end of the first line allows the command to continue to the 2nd line.
You can also narrow your search by using the reserved word AND or broaden it by using the reserved word OR. E.g., entering SEARCH AMPLIGEN AND RESEARCH would yield only those messages which contained both of those words. Please note that CFS-L logs are only retained for roughly six months. To search further back you may want to use other archive services such as http://www.dejanews.com
A full description of how to use the LISTSERV database utility can be obtained by sending the command GET LISTDB MEMO to any LISTSERV.

Subject: Section 2: Usenet newsgroups
Many people prefer the convenience of reading Usenet newsgroups rather than receiving many messages from an active mailing list. Some mailing lists and newsgroups are linked, or "gatewayed". Some newsgroups such as alt.med.cfs are moderated and your post will not appear in the group immediately. For a more detailed discussion on the technical setup of alt.med.cfs see Appendix C below.
If you don't have access to Usenet and would like to find a service that enables you to reach there, read the "CFS/ME Electronic Resources" guide which can be obtained by sending the command GET CFS-NET TXT as an e-mail message to the address LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG. It is also possible to access Usenet newsgroups via e-mail, see Appendix C below.

Subject: Section 3: FILES -- documents via email
CFS information files are available from the CFS-FILE database on the St. John's University LISTSERV, and the CFS-D database on the New York State Department of Health LISTSERV in Albany, New York.
To use the St. John's LISTSERV, send commands to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG.
To get a list of current files available, send the command GET CFS-FILE
FILELIST to this LISTSERV address. To retrieve specific files, note
the filenames on the FILELIST and then send a command in the form of
GET (filename1) (filename2) to the LISTSERV address (each file has a
two-part name). Example: GET CFS FAQ
To be notified of newly added files in the future, join the notification list by sending a command in the form of
SUB CFS-FILE YourFirstName YourLastName
as an email message to the address LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG.
To use the Albany LISTSERV, send commands by e-mail to LISTSERV@HEALTH.STATE.NY.US and use commands similarly as above, i.e. send GET CFS-D FILELIST to this LISTSERV address.
When GETting files you can have the file split into a number of smaller files by adding a SPLIT= instruction, see the GET command instructions in section 1B above.

Subject: Section 4: World Wide Web
World Wide Web, or "www", is the latest Internet tool which having a revolutionary effect on computer technology. Web pages link many different Internet resources together on any related topic. If your system doesn't have www but does have telnet, you can use www by telnetting into any of the following and logging in as 'www': ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu; telnet.w3.org; or www.njit.edu. It is also possible to access web pages via e-mail, see Appendix C below. For a FAQ on the www see http://www.boutell.com/faq
There are a great many CFS/ME resources that are reachable via the web, too many to list here. The following web pages can lead you to these many links:

Subject: Section 5: IRC (Internet Relay Chat)
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) enables a real-time live conference. There is a CFS channel on the "Undernet" portion of the IRC network which holds regular meetings daily, and which has become so popular that there are usually people on the channel at almost all hours of the day. For details about how to reach the #CFS channel you can go to the web page at http://CFS-IRC.home.att.net. Or by email you can send the command
GET CFS IRC
as a message to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG.
For information about IRC generally, send the command
as an e-mail message to email@example.com. For information about the IRC Undernet in particular (where the active CFS channel is located), send the command
to that same address.

Subject: Section 7: FTP
"FTP" stands for "file transfer protocol". It is a means of transferring large files rapidly between different computer systems, and it is available at many Internet providers. Note the following sites:
alternatives.com (Alternatives BBS, British Columbia), directory hecfs (to see a helpful menu listing of the files there, web to http://www.alternatives.com/libs/hecfs.htmBack to the top
warp.icdi.wvu.edu (Project ENABLE BBS, West Virginia), directory CFS (to see a helpful menu listing of the files there, web to http://www.icdi.wvu.edu/files/file23.htm

ftp.cdc.gov (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), ftp://ftp.cdc.gov/pub/infectious_diseases/cfs/
Subject: Section 8: Telnet
"Telnet" enables you login in to another system from your own. There are a few computer systems that allow limited access by the general public to selected resources.
The Project ENABLE BBS of West Virginia can be reached by telnet. The BBS gives access to many disability related discussion groups on the Fidonet BBS network, including the CFS "echo". People on Internet who are accustomed to quick responses to messages may feel that the Fidonet echos are slow (they can take a day or two to distribute messages). However, Fidonet BBSs can be accessed at no charge and usually by a local telephone call, so they can be reached by a great many people. Telnet to enable.wvnet.edu and after completing the online registration you can from the main menu use the Join command to go to the CFS echo at conference 101. CFS files can be found in file area 23 and can be downloaded via ftp from warp.icdi.wvu.edu directory CFS. (For information on how to find Fidonet BBSs locally, get the "CFS/ME Electronic Resources" guide by sending the command GET CFS-NET TXT as an email message to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG.)
The National Capital Free-net (Ottawa) has a CFS section with discussion groups and info files. Telnet to freenet.carleton.ca. When you reach the command prompt, enter the command "go cfseir" to get to the CFS section. You may want to fill out and mail in the Freenet registration forms to get wider access to that system.
The Alternatives BBS has a health forum including a files section on CFS (which can be accessed directly by ftp, see Section 7 above). Telnet to alternatives.com or 184.108.40.206.

One copyright FAQ is at
For information on spam visit http://spam.abuse.net
alt.med.cfs posting delays -- When posting to alt.med.cfs your article will not appear in the group immediately. Posts to alt.med.cfs are forwarded to the LISTSERV which verifies that you are registered for posting (they are not viewed by anyone before distribution). It then sends the post to the Usenet gateway (and to CFS-L). From the news gateway at American University the article must make its way back to your news server.
News propagation tends to be slow and unreliable. It's not uncommon to see posts appearing out of order. It's also probable that those following via Usenet do not see every article posted to the group. The quality of news feeds vary depending on your provider.
If you would like to be certain that your posts are reaching the group, you can set your registration subscription to ACK. To do so, send a e-mail message to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG that reads SET CFS-L ACK. (For more information on LISTSERV and SET commands see Section 1 above.) Thereafter, each time you post you will receive a short confirmation notice via e-mail when your post is successfully distributed.
If getting timely and complete information is important to you, you may want to consider following via the mailing list. E-mail is much faster and more reliable than news propagation. The mailing list CFS-L and the newsgroup alt.med.cfs mirror each other. To switch to the mailing list, send a e-mail message to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG that reads SET CFS-L MAIL.
If your posts do appear on the group immediately, it's likely your provider doesn't have the group set as moderated at your site. In that case your posts are not being distributed to the full group. You should ask your news administrator to set the group as moderated. Another way around this problem is to send your posts as an e-mail message to CFS-L@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG. Everything sent to that address is automatically distributed to the group, provided you are registered for posting.
