Charlotte: Mailbase@mailbase.ac.uk is an enhanced mailing list server and the subscription requests will be handled automatically. mailbase-request is an alias for the mailbase-helpline (a person) nir-request is an alias for the nir list owner (also a person). The mail you received will have been form people who mailed to the nir list by mistake rather than to the Mailbase Server. Hope this helps. Cheers - Jill
