Please continue to use the current NV-L list until Sunday, March
5th. The list subscriber databases will be synchronized on March
4th, so current subscribers need not subscribe to the new server.
You should not experience any interruption in service, but you
should be aware of the following differences between the current
LISTSERV list server and our Majordomo server:
1. Majordomo does not have options like DIGEST/NODIGEST,
MAIL/NOMAIL, CONCEAL etc. Instead, the following features
Since there is no DIGEST/NODIGEST option on Majordomo, there
will be two lists: nv-l AT tkg DOT com and nv-l-digest AT tkg DOT com.
Only digests are sent to the nv-l-digest list. Existing
digest subscribers will be automatically subscribed to
There is no NOMAIL option, so you have to unsubscribe to

Users can't see the other subscribers, so there is no need
for the CONCEAL option.
All message subjects sent to the mailing list will have

emails will have a footer which contains the URL for the
list's web site.
2. Majordomo does not have searching capabilities, so we will
provide a web-based search function, which can be reached at
http://www.tkg.com/search. Monthly archives very similar to
LISTSERV's archive format will still be available, using the
GET, INDEX commands, and more conveniently from
http://www.tkg.com/nv-l. All previous archives are
