- SET PIPORG-L DIGEST to have postings accumulate in a
digest file until the file exceeds 1500 lines or 10 p.m. (US Central

the postings are not "digested" or otherwise edited; you
receive copies of all postings in their entirety. To cancel digest
mode, SET PIPORG-L NODIGEST .
An elaboration of digest mode is the HTML option. Use this if your
mail reader is closely coupled to your web browser. Clicking items
in the digest table of contents cause the corresponding postings to
appear in the browser window. To enable, SET PIPORG-L DIGEST HTML .
- SET PIPORG-L INDEX to have sent to you only a list of
posting subject lines along with sender names. The index is sent
out the same time as the digest, and from the index you can order
to be sent to you those postings which you want to read in full.
To cancel, SET PIPORG-L NOINDEX .
- SET PIPORG-L NOMAIL causes listserv to suspend the
sending of postings to you. This is useful if you are going to
be away from your computer for a time and want to avoid mailbox
overflow. To cancel NOMAIL, send the command SET PIPORG-L MAIL .
