The difference between the mailing list and the query board lies mainly in the scope of information communicated.

E. MANAGING YOUR MAILING LIST ACCOUNT
To subscribe, unsubscribe or make other changes to your mailing list subscription, you must send "commands" to the computer & the SmartList software on RootsWeb.
When sending "commands" you must address your message to the appropriate list to which you are currently subscribed and for which you wish to make any changes or requests:
GOSE-Lemail@example.com (for individual messages)
GOSE-Dfirstname.lastname@example.org (for a digest of multiple messages)
To manage your subscription, send an e-mail message to the address above and use any of the following commands, typed within the body of your e-mail message. Type ONLY one of the commands on each message sent, as it is shown below. Do not add any extra words or lines of text:
Do NOT use a signature file attached to the e-mail message. The software reads your message and tries to answer each command it finds. When it runs across your signature file it gets a bit confused and will send you a message stating something like "Do not recognize command 'Jones'. Do not recognize command 'Smith' ", etc.
If you have any problems or questions, contact us for help.
Good Luck & Have Fun!
