How do I access archived mailing list messages (Majordomo)?

To read the content of archived messages:

  • First send a message with "index marzsat" in the body to see the 
    list of messages.
  • Then send a message with "get marzsat log.xxxx" in the body to have 
    majordomo email you the archived message you'd like to see.

We plan to install majorcool (a web-based command interface for list maintainers and users) and web-based archive software for reading the archive. For now, please use the majordomo commands to access the archive. 

How do I read Microsoft Word email attachments in UNIX mail?

UNIX LPL WebMail: Click on the message to read it, then click on the attachment hyperlink (not the diskette or MS Word icons) to view the text version of the attachment.

UNIX Pine: Read the message, use the V and S commands to save the attachment to your UNIX home directory, then use the antiword command to display the saved file in text format (% antiword saved_filename).
