FAQ
Hi all,

I have a problem to register to mailing lists managed with gnu mailman. I think it comes from the way my free email provider writes the subject line content but I'm not sure.

I copied below the email I sent to the gnu mailman server using the first "reply" method and the answer I got back from it. I did not use the second "single line in the message body" method because my email provider automatically adds a few extra lines at the end of my emails (advertisement for its ADSL internet service).

Since this is not the first time this problem occurs to me, with different gnu mailman servers, I thought it might be of interest. If you need more information, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for your help,

David.
