<div><font color="#000000">During the past two months I've received
several requests to change the mail status for list-members who will
be away from their e-mail while on vacation or for other reasons. I
am happy to do this upon request but it is something that any member
can do for him/herself and that I encourage you to do for yourselves.
The only reason why anyone should have difficulty is a forgotten
password selected too long ago to remember (something that happens to
me even from yesterday). So here are the instructions<br>
1. Go to B-Greek Mailing List web page:<br>
2. There you are asked to type your e-maill address (e.g.
cwconrad@artsci.wustl.edu) into the first box, your password into the
box below. If you did not choose a password when you became a
list-member you may ignore this and go on to the next step; if you
did choose a password and have forgotten it, you'll have to ask me:
I can retrieve it for you and send it to you by e-mail.<br>
3. Then click on "Click here to enter b-greek". This will take
you to a page showing four boxes:<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>"Read Messages"<br>
<x-tab> </x-tab>"Create a New Message"<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp; </x-tab>"Your Settings"<br>
<x-tab> </x-tab>"Leave (unsubscribe)"<br>
and below those is a box to type in an entry for searching the
B-Greek archives (messages since June 1998 when the list moved to
this site).<br>
4. Click on "Your Settings": this will open a page entitled
"Edit your Member Settings on b-greek."<br>
This will show several items :<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>--Your e-mail
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>--Your full name<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>--Your
password (shown in black dots)<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>--Your password (as retyped originally to
confirm it)<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>--"Status" pop-up menu allowing you
to choose between four options for receiving B-Greek messages; you
must choose one of these and it will then show on the screen after
you have selected it.:<br>
</x-tab><x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>a.
mail: receive messages as they are contributed<br>
</x-tab><x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>b.
digest: one daily message with all the contributions for that day<br>
</x-tab><x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>c.
index: one daily message with only the subject lines for that day<br>
</x-tab><x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>d.
nomail: receive no messages from this mailing list<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>--"See your messages" pop-up menu
allowing you to choose whether you want to<br>
</x-tab><x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>a.
see your own messages (i.e. receive a distribution copy of messages
you have sent)<br>
</x-tab><x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>b.
not to see your own messages<br>
<x-tab> </x-tab>--"Acknowledgement" pop-up menu: gives you the
choice (yes/no) of whether to receive an acknowledgement of
distribution of your message to the list<br>
5. At the bottom of the page there are three boxes:<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp; </x-tab>a. Save (save changes you have made)<br>
<x-tab>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </x-tab>b. Reset (return to default
settings rather than any that you have set)<br>
<x-tab> </x-tab>c. Do not save (do not save any changes you've
typed in while currently on this page)<br>
Click on any one of these boxes to return to the main B-Greek
