I think that's what happens if you set the list to DIGEST mode.

Didn't you keep the e-mail that was sent to you when you joined the list? Here it is in all its glory.

Once your message is received at, it will be re-distributed to all mailing list subscribers. You may receive replies either privately or as
replies to the list itself, depending on the choice of the person responding.    

4) How to unsubscribe from the list  

If you wish to unsubscribe from this mailing list, you should send an E-mail

message to the mailing list server, with the following command in the message
BODY (a Subject line is not required or needed):  

    UNSUB ORACLE-L   Your E-mail message should be addressed to: <-- Note EXACT spelling of 'ListGuru'  

NOTE: If you only want to *TEMPORARILY* stop receiving postings from this mailing list, you may want to use the SET NOMAIL command as mentioned below.    

5) Commonly used mailing list server commands  

The mailing list server software in use at is ListGuru. ListGuru
accepts most commands from all major mailing list servers, including Listserv,
ListProc, Majordomo, MailBase and SmartList (among others). All messages to

the mailing list server MUST be addressed to only one address, however: <-- Note EXACT spelling of 'ListGuru'  

Mailing list commands must be included in the message body, not the Subject line. Commands on the Subject line are ignored. Multiple commands can be included in a single message. You may send as many messages as you wish.  

A short description of the most commonly used commands follows. For a complete list of all commands available, use the HELP command to obtain more

detailed information. In all commands below, <list> refers to a name of a valid mailing list name (for example, ORACLE-L ).  

    Command Format What it does

    HELP                  Sends complete ListGuru command information 
    LISTS                 Sends a list of all available lists at this site 
    UNSUB <list>          Unsubscribes the subscriber from the list 
    SET <list> NOMAIL     Temporarily turns off messages to the subscriber 
    SET <list> MAIL       Resumes mail flow to the subscriber 
    CONFIRM <list>        Confirms a subscription to a particular list 
    WHICH                 Shows ALL lists that a user is subscribed to 
    SET <list> DIGEST     Turns on DIGEST mode for a list (if available) 
    SET <list> NODIGEST Returns to normal (single message) mode for a list
    INDEX <list>          Lists all available archive files for a list 
    END                   Discontinues further command processing (useful if

                          you have long signature sections). 

There are more than 50 commands which can be used with ListGuru. The HELP command details all commands and their function. In addition, it specifies which commands from other mailing list server software may be used.  

Note that the two most common mistakes when using mailing list servers are misspellings of addresses or list names, and posting mailing list server commands to the list itself (a major no-no). When in doubt, ask for HELP.
