After clicking you will be on the main DB2-L page where you can subscribe, change your subscription settings, search the archives or post to the list.
click here On this page there is also a link to a place where a number of UDB scripts are stored.
To get a list of all the groups send an email to LISTSERV@BITNIC.binet. Leave the subject blank and put LIST GLOBAL in the message body The very long document will be sent to your email box. One of the recent lists was over 25,000 lines, so be sure your email can handle the volume before you request the list.
Subscribing to the list is the Internet jargon for being added to a mailing list. Some of the lists
have a great deal of volume coming to them on a daily basis. The DB2 Discussion List is one of those.
It is common to receive 25 emails from it in a day. Other discussion lists have very low volume.
To SUBSCRIBE send an email to the address that is listed with the mailing list name on the
list you received from BITNET (or borrowed from a friend that had alredy received it).
As before, leave the subject blank and put SUBSCRIBE listname in the message
body. Listname is the name of the list you wish to subscribe to. In many cases you will receive an
email asking you to confirm that you wish to subscribe. In some cases there is a code in this email and
you must send this code back to the LISTSERVer. Don't be concerned with all these details, the email
you receive gives very clear instructions on how respond. When you are successfully signed up, you
should receive another email indicating that you are now a subscriber.
If you decide you want to be removed from the list, you must request to be UNSUBSCRIBed. This is done exactly like subscribing except your message body needs to be UNSUBSCRIBE listname.
Some of the lists that may be interesting to database professional are listed below. The name of the
list will generally indicate the subject of the list. These lists are subscribed to by professionals all over
