ezmlm mailing lists are by default set up to keep an archive of all the messages sent to the list. This archive is used to create digests. Users can also access messages in the archive, using the -get, -thread(*), and -index(*) addresses (see above). If the users would like to receive messages in a non-default format, they may do so by adding a format specifier(*) to the command address name. Thus, to receive messages 45-65 from ‘email@example.com’ in the ‘v’ (virgin - MIME with all headers) format, the user would send a message to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’(*).
