Philipp, send the command HELP in a single-line e-mail message to the [log in to unmask] . This will get you a help file about the listserv oprions. You can set some option to receive a copy of your own message from the listserv, by default this option is turned off. You can also choose to get a send report (saying: Your message was distributed to *** people). Yours, J"org Knappen P.S. Didn't you save the wellcome message from the Listserver when you subscribed? It tells you about this.
