KineJapan FAQ

This FAQ summarizes some of the basic commands you can use as a KineJapan subscriber. If at all possible, use these commands yourself to alter your subscription status. Only contact the owners when you have a problem in successfully executing these commands. Do not ever send requests to be taken off the list, etc., to the entire list: that is a bother to all the subscribers.

For all of the cases below, leave the subject line of your message blank and do not sign the message.

How do I temporarily suspend mail?

To suspend mail deliveries temporarily, click here to access the KineJapan Info Page, or point your brower to the following URL:

https://lists.service.ohio-state.edu/mailman/listinfo/kinejapan

In the section titled “KineJapan Subscribers,” type your e-mail in the spot next to the “Unsubscribe or edit options” button and then click. That will take you to the page that enables you to change your subscription options. In the section titled “Mail delivery,” just check “Disabled” to stop delivery of KineJapan mail. This will not unsubscribe you.

How do I start delivery back up after suspending it?

To restart mail after you have suspended it (following the instructions above), again click here to access the KineJapan Info Page, or point your brower to the following URL:

How do I change my subscription to "digest" and receive only one email per day?

To set your subscription option to “digest,” which packages all that day’s mail into one mail that you receive once a day (if there was mail that day), click here to access the KineJapan Info Page, or point your brower to the following URL:

https://lists.service.ohio-state.edu/mailman/listinfo/kinejapan
