EGRID SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

We invite any SF Bay Area engineer/developer/manager to subscribe to the eGrid at no cost to the eGRID and receive it twice a month. These subscribers are maintained on the IEEE's secure ListServ system, and you can subscribe/unsubscribe at any time.

To subscribe your current email address, and you are an IEEE member, send a separate email to listserv@listserv.ieee.org with the following information in the BODY of the email:
      subscribe   e-GRID-I   FirstName   LastName
If you want to unsubscribe and you are an IEEE member, type
      unsubscribe e-GRID-I   FirstName   LastName

To subscribe your current email address, and you are not an IEEE member, send a separate email to listserv@listserv.ieee.org
with the following information in the BODY of the email:
      subscribe   e-GRID   FirstName   LastName

To end your subscription and you are not an IEEE member, type
      unsubscribe e-GRID   FirstName   LastName


This seems to work for some people, but not others. Another option is eliminate either your full name or just your last name, and just type unsubscribe   e-GRID-I

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.
