How to get the digest version of the ILI-L list

If you, like me, have been overwhelmed by the individual messages on this listserv, I suggest changing over to the "digest version". The digest version allows you to receive one email that includes all listserv submissions for the day. Follow these steps noted by the listserv administrator:

1. Once you login, you can click on "Your subscriptions" in the top right of the screen. You can then click on the name of the list in order to reach a screen that gives you several choices, including "Unsubscribe", "Subscriber Options", "Archive", and "Post".

2. If you choose "Subscriber Options", you can then change "Reception mode" from "normal" to "digest" (then click "Update").

As the listserv administrator noted this weekend, "this should work for most people, although some individuals report problems in opening the individual message attachments. This may also fail if the number of attachments is very high. We are working on ways to solve these problems."
