-====== Mailing Lists ====== 
- 
-===== Why am I subscribed? ===== 
-If you ever took a course here you probably have a CS account. When you sign up for a CS account you get cnet@cs.uchicago.edu email address, which we automatically forward to your cnet@uchicago.edu address. We then subscribe you (cnet@cs.uchicago.edu) to the cs@mailman.cs.uchicago.edu mailing list.  
-As a CS computer account holder we need a method to communicate with you. Mailing lists are one of the best ways to do so. 
- 
-===== Unsubscribing ===== 
-If you no longer want to receive the emails from any list in our department there is a link located at the bottom of every email sent out by the list host that allows you to unsubscribe. 
-The link you are looking for will look something like this:  
-<​code>​ 
-  https://​mailman.cs.uchicago.edu/​mailman/​listinfo/​cs 
-</​code>​ 
-1. On the bottom of this page you will see a text box: 
-{{techstaff:​unsubscribe.png}} 
- 
-2. Type your email in the text box shown above. Mostly likely this takes the format of: ''​%%cnetid@cs.uchicago.edu%%''​ 
- 
-Please read [[ techstaff::​mailinglist#​the_tricky_part | The Tricky Part ]] section for details on which email you should use. 
- 
-3. Click the button '​Unsubscribe or edit options'​. 
- 
-4. You will be taken to a page which provides a bunch of options. Look for the following '​Unsubscribing from cs' 
- 
-5. Select the check box: 'Yes, I really want to unsubscribe'​ and click '​Unsubscribe'​. 
- 
-6. You will be redirected to a webpage that tells you if the unsubscribe was successful. 
-<​code>​ 
-You have been successfully unsubscribed from the mailing list cs@mailman.cs.uchicago.edu. If you were receiving digest deliveries you may get one more digest. If you have any questions about your unsubscription,​ please contact the list owners at cs-owner@mailman.cs.uchicago.edu. 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-==== The Tricky Part ==== 
-This is where it gets a bit tricky because depending on what time your account was created we will have used your [[cnetid@cs.uchicago.edu]] (auto forward to [[cnetid@uchicago.edu]]) or [[cnetid@uchicago.edu]] email address. If you are unsure which email to use you will need to try both. (Try cnetid@cs.uchicago.edu before trying cnetid@uchicago.edu). 
- 
-After entering in your email you will be presented with a screen where you will be able to actually click the button to unsubscribe. 
-{{techstaff:​actually_unsubscribe.png}} 
- 
-Click this and you will be emailed a confirmation email. Click the link in said email and you are done.  
-If you did not receive a confirmation email, you did not enter the email address that was used to subscribe you to the list.
