A listserv is an Internet feature whereby one posts a message that is received via email by all listserv members. They can respond to you or to the entire listserv membership. The following email commands can be used to handle most end-user functions, instead of the web interface. More information on email commands is available at the ListManager Web Interface. Browse to the "Email Commands" section in the navigation bar on the left side.

For security reasons the listserv rejects all postings with attachments to emails.
Subscribe to AQUATOXinfo via email. Send an email to AQUATOXinfo (firstname.lastname@example.org), leaving the "Subject:" field blank and putting "subscribe AQUATOXinfo firstname lastname" in the body of the text. Once you have subscribed, you will receive a welcome message confirming your membership.
To unsubscribe from a list, send an email message to Leave-AQUATOXinfo (email@example.com)
Messages are sent by email to AQUATOXinfo (AQUATOXinfo@lists.epa.gov). The postings are then sent out as email messages to every member of the AQUATOXinfo listserv.
If you are a member of a mailing list, you can search past messages of the mailing list, and the messages that match your search specification will be sent back to you via email.
Send email to Search-ListManager (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In the body of the message, use the command
search aquatoxinfo search words
Replace search words with the words you are searching for. ListManager will search for messages which contain any of the given search words. If multiple messages match your search, the search results will be organized so that the messages that matched more of your search terms appear at the top, and messages with equivalent search scores are organized with the newest messages first. If you are not sure of the precise form of the word you may use the wild card “*” to find variations (e.g. “citation*" will find “citation” as well as “citations”).
