If your mailbox is flowing over with mails, you can use the "digest" facility. It means that you will only receive one letter a day, with all letters of the day included. If you would like to change your subscription option from Immediate to Digest, you must first unsubscribe yourself and then resubscribe yourself in digest mode.
In order to do this you must follow the following instructions:
First, unsubscribe from the list:
1. Send a mail message to SCDemail@example.com
2. In the body, include ONLY the phrase
unsubscribe SCD-list <your email address>
After you are unsubscribed, (you will get an email confirming your unsubscribing), now subscribe again using these directions:
3. Send a mail message to SCDfirstname.lastname@example.org
4. In the body, include ONLY the phrase
subscribe SCD-list <your email address> digest
