Types of Settings:

RegularReceive individual postings immediately as they are processed by LISTSERV.

Digest (Traditional), Digest (MIME format), Digest (HTML format)Receive larger messages (called “digests”) at regular intervals, usually once per day or once per week. These “digests” are collections of individual list postings. Some lists are so active that they produce several digests per day.

Digests are a good compromise between reading everything as it is posted and feeling like the list is clogging your mailbox with a multitude of individual postings.

There are three digest formats: a “traditional”, text-only format; a MIME format, which (with mail clients that understand MIME digests) “bursts” the individual messages out of the digest so that you can read them separately; and an HTML format, which requires an HTML mail clients.

Index (Traditional), Index (HTML format)Receive short “index” messages at regular intervals, usually once per day or once per week. These “indexes” show you what is being discussed on the list, without including the text of the individual postings. For each posting, the date, the author’s name and address, the subject of the message, and the number of lines is listed. You can then download messages of interest from the server (the index contains instructions on how to do that).
