Several people have inquired about the archive for the math-history-list.
I thought I would post the information for everyone, since those who have
joined the group recently may want to look at all of the messages.

If you send email addressed to
consisting of the single line
index math-history-list
then you will promptly receive a message like the following:

>>>> index math-history-list
total 1428
100 math-history-list
0 math-history-list-199508
304 math-history-list-199509
1024 math-history-list-199510

This tells the names of the archive files and their sizes. To obtain a
copy of the file of message sent in September 1995 send email to
consisting of the single line
get math-history-list math-history-list-199509
and to get the archive from the current month send the message
get math-history-list math-history-list
After you receive the file you can strip off the header and read it using
your usual mail reader (exactly how you do this depends on your individual
system, so if you have trouble, ask a local guru).

Please, don't everyone do this as soon as you receive this message, or you
will overwhelm the machine.
