The most popular methods are listed toward the top:

  1. News - bit.listserv.vse-l newsgroup - A newsgroup is kind of like a public bulletin board. Required is news reader software on your PC and a news feed, or some type of access to news access, for example your service provider (ISP). You read the vse-l mail traffic via the news system. You will also subscribe to vse-l and then set your subscription to "postpone". This way you don't get mail, but you can still write/post to vse-l. For more information see subscription types

  2. Web - archives or google - Somewhat like news. For more information see vse-l archives

  3. Mail and News Filters - Many PC-based mail systems and news readers allow you to customize your incoming mail according to your interest/need. Many can reorder, prioritize, rank, redirect, and even delete messages (for example kill messages that mention MVS if you don't use MVS -:) ). You might for example filter all your vse-l mail to a folder called vse-in where it's out of sight and out of mind, and then read it just once a week or every coupld days.

  4. Digest mode - vse-l sends you one (just one) e-mail per day. It contains an index of all the topics of the day, plus all the messages. For more information see subscription types

  5. An alternate e-mail address - Subscribe from an e-mail account that is not your primary business address. This way, you will not be interrupted throughout the day by mail from vse-l. You need to get a second e-mail address and then subscribe to vse-l from that address.
