To subscribe to your current email address, and you are an IEEE member, send a separate email to    listserv@listserv.ieee.org with subscribe e-GRID-I   FirstName   LastName in the BODY of the email. Substitute e-GRID if not an IEEE member.
To unsubscribe and you are an IEEE member, type
      unsubscribe e-GRID-I   FirstName   LastName from the email address in which the subscription is sent to, and substitute e-GRID if not an IEEE member.
This seems to work for some people, but not others. Another option is to enter unsubscribe   e-GRID-I first name

Be sure to email from the account in which the subscription is emailed, not one which "points" at the real email address. If you have trouble with this, please email me directly at s.l.winkler@ieee.org.
You will receive an emailed form requesting that you verify your subscription.
