[IP] how to use digest
since i use AOL as well, i thought i would assist you here..
basically, you open the email...it is a dompedium (sp) of about 25 emails and
all the associated junk and headers and gobbeldy gook that people put into
their emails. You can read through the entire thing if you like, or jsut
scroll through the table of contents, which isnt usually a good idea,.cuz
people dont always chjange their subject lines...
If you want to respond back to something, you can click and drag over the
snipping you want to respond to, (please don't copy the ENTIRE post or even
worse, the entire digest), and click the REPLY box. AOL opens a new message
box, addresses it back to IP (since that is who digest is from, not the
individual poster) and puts in that little snippet you highlighted.
Then you go to SUBJECT line and change it, so it doesnt say RE Insulin pumper
digest #42738472, make it relevant to your post, as in mine...
then you can type in whatever response you want...be sure to delete anything
"extra" any junk or headers or extra words that you don't need.
If you want to respond back ONLY to the person who sent the post, you can do
the same thing, except when you click reply, and it automatically addresses
it to IP, be sure to change it to the person's email. Each post begins like

Subject: [IP] insulin-pumpers-digest V4 #4
Got a question regarding the digest....
and there you can get the person's direct email address. I fyou want to tell
someone Congratulations, or say "me too" it is best to send those DIRECTLY to
the person rather than to the entire list. Whenever you just hit REPLY, your
posts go to the ENTIRE list.
Hope this helps...if you have more questions, please ask - and WELCOME!!
