The Eat-Lf Mailing List


This web site is the result of years of enthusiastic participation by the thousands of subscribers to the eat-lf mailing list. We invite you to join us in sharing the joys of low-fat eating. Subscription instructions are here.

The eat-lf list is an unmoderated mailing list. It is available either as a digest or as individual messages. Recipes are extracted from the messages and are available for download here.

The rules for participation are simple:


Subscription Instructions

The eat-lf mailing list is run automatically by Bestserv.
The commands and options are different from those of listserv, listproc or majordomo.

This will subscribe you at the address that your message is sent from. This is almost certainly your correct address. Bestserv will send you a message asking you to confirm your subscription request. You must reply to the message changing the word REJECT in the subject to ACCEPT. You will get a confirmation when your subscription has been accepted. If you have problems subscribing, please write to us at <eat-lf-owner@lists.eat-lowfat.com> and we will assist you.

There is no equivalent of the listproc "POSTPONE" setting - just unsubscribe before you go and resubscribe when you return.
