> 2. If you are a BITNET user, you might be subscribed under your

> 3. You might be subscribed under an equivalent yet different address -

> 4. You could be subscribed to the list under another account, from which

> 5. You could be subscribed to the list indirectly, via a "redistribution"
> That is, one of the subscribers to the LISTSERV list is in fact a mailing
