2 I/O Related Email Lists

    Here is a list of email reflectors for those who need to be deeply
involved in the technical details of various interfaces and standards.

All of the majordomo and listserv reflectors are automatic.  To
subscribe or unsubscribe, send a message to the subscribe/unsubscribe
address with a line in the message body (not the subject line) of the
following format:

command  reflector_name  [your_email_address]

NOTE: At least for the reflectors at majordomo@dt.wdc.com, your email
address is optional.  If you include it and it doesn't match the
address in the email headers, there will be a delay while humans
verify your email address.


subscribe ata
subscribe ssa
subscribe ssa person@company.com
subscribe atapi
subscribe mmc
subscribe fibre-channel-ext person@company.com
subscribe pcmcia-gen person@company.com
unsubscribe ssa person@company.com

The other reflectors are managed by humans who are a little less picky
about the request format, but not quite as prompt.  Please include
your name, email address, phone, and fax numbers in the message body
for the human-managed reflectors.
