The LISTSERV software recognizes subscribers by their e-mail address. If your address undergoes a change, Listserv will no longer recognize you, even if you're still able to receive mail sent to your old address. If the LISTSERV software doesn't recognize your address, you will be unable to post messages, stop mail, unsubscribe, etc. Thus, it is important that you be subscribed from your current address. Here's what to do:
If you have advance notice that your address will change, you should unsubscribe while you still have access to the old address. To unsubscribe, send the message UNSUB WMST-L from your old address to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.UMD.EDU . Once you've unsubscribed, you can re-subscribe by sending from your new address the message SUB WMST-L Your Name to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.UMD.EDU . You'll be asked to confirm.
If you can no longer send messages from your old address, contact me PRIVATELY at email@example.com .
Do NOT send messages about your subscription to WMST-L!!
