When you belong to a mailing list, your name and e-mail address are available and can be listed by any list member who sends the review or who command to a list server that is configured to reveal members by name and e-mail address.
If you want to be a member of a LISTSERV or ListProc list, but do not want other members to have access to your name and e-mail address, you can conceal your membership from the list’s members (but not the owner).
In a LISTSERV or ListProc mailing list, create a new e-mail message, and type the list’s administrative address in the To field. Leave the Cc, Bcc, and Subject fields blank.
In the message area, type the set listname conceal command if you are subscribed to a LISTSERV list, or type the set listname conceal yes command if you are subscribed to a ListProc list, replacing the list’s name for listname .
If necessary, delete your signature, and then send the message.
If you decide that you want your name to appear again, follow the same steps but substitute nonconceal in place of conceal in the LISTSERV command and yes in place of no in the ListProc command.
