Getting the Cystic-L Handbook via eMail

 The CYSTIC-L Handbook (also known as the FAQ) is a 400 page handbook containing a wealth of CF-related information and resources drawn from the collected wisdom and experiances of the subscribers to CYSTIC-L. This document is updated periodically. The Month/Year of recent updates is shown in parenthesis following the section title both in the Table of Contents and in the body of the document. The Handbook can be printed with page numbers that match those given in the Table of Contents.

To get the entire CYSTIC-L Handbook via email, send the following commands in the body of an email to:

 [email protected]

    GET HAND-1 TXT CYSTIC-LGET HAND-2 TXT CYSTIC-LGET HAND-3 TXT CYSTIC-L

    GET HAND-APP TXT CYSTIC-L

If you only want some of these files (check the Table of Contents), do not list the unwanted files.

Some mail accounts impose a limit on the size of messages that can be received (e.g., JUNO rejects messages larger than 61k). To get the file broken down into a series of messages that will meet your limit, send this GET message instead (you may substitute any value for “55”):

    GET filename TXT CYSTIC-L SPLIT=55K

Repeat the command on a new line for each filename just as above.
