To unsubscribe from lis-ukeig when on holiday/out of office
If you use an auto-responder message to indicate that you are "out of the office" without unsubscribing from discussions lists,
this automatic message may be seen by many list members. There
is a simple way to avoid doing so by suspending your membership
of the list while you are away - email and web options for doing
so are given below.
When you return you can catch up on messages by going to http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/
and following the link to "Search Archives".
To suspend list membership using email
Send the following message to firstname.lastname@example.org
