Help on this newsgroup

Hi there,
I am currently accessing this newsgroup through Outlook Express. I must have
subscribed to some other service in the past because I get a separate e-mail
for every posting made here. How do I unsubscribe to the e-mail service?
Thanks in advance.
Best regards,

The E-Mail interface to BBSNOTES is not quite (how do I say this delicately)
"robust". However, it is far too useful to turn off, and the developers (a
3rd party; DNEWS) have not released a better implementation (the DNEWSWEB
and E-Mail interface was not all that popular apparently).
To keep this useful feature of the BBS, I've been responding to requests and
removed items manually from the tomail.dat file. If you find that you
CANNOT unsubscribe, just send me a mail message with the E-Mail address you
want unsubscribed (apparently subscribing works just fine) ;-).

Re: Help on this newsgroup

Dear Harrison Spain,
Thank you for your response. I CANNOT unsubscribe because there isn't any
instruction on how to unsubscribe in the e-mails I have been getting from
this group. Of course, having forgotten how I subscribed to this service in
the first place exacerbates the situation. Anyhow, I do not know if you have
manually removed me from the e-mail subscription. I see new entries on the
list but I did not get an e-mail copy for that. If I can still follow the
discussions through this news service and not get e-mail copies for them
then, that is fine.
Thank you,
