In the following message, shouldn't you tell people who want to join
the NIR mailing list to mail to "mailbase-request@mailbase.ac.uk" and
**not** to "mailbase@mailbase.ac.uk"?  I have received two "subscribe"
messages in my inbox today, and they are just clutter to me.

>  A Reminder that the NIR list has moved. To mail to it, send to:

>  the command (in the text of your message):

>  subscribe nir yourfirstname yourlast name

>  for example:

>  subscribe nir Marc Van-der-noordaa

>  as in the last example - please hyphenate it. ...

>  I'll now send a test message to the new NIR list.  If you don't
