Policy information is here.
The Derby mailing list is devoted to the lively discussion of thoroughbred horse racing. Typical topics include handicapping, breeding, and the spread of racing information. The list currently has over 1000 subscribers plus many who read online and can average as many as 40 messages a day during peak seasons.
You can receive the Derby list in either digest mode or reflected mode or you can read it online at the searchable Escribe archive or the Last 200 Messages page. With digest mode, you receive one Email message in the standard digest format daily unless the traffic level is high. The digest is also delivered whenever the message volume reaches 50K. In busy times of the year you may receive more than one a day, but usually it will be about one a day. Reflected mode sends out each message separately as it arrives at the Derby list.
The majority of those on the list receive the digest format. By default, all subscription requests are started in this mode unless otherwise requested but you can change over to reflected mode if you think you can keep up with the traffic. Some online services are not up to handling the heavy message volume reflected mode can generate at times.
Subscription requests and the like should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Derby list is NOT affiliated with, nor is it a service of, Prodigy, Compuserve, Delphi, America On Line, or any other commercial computer service provider. If you are receiving the Derby list on one of the commercial providers, you should not be charged any premium over and above the normal electronic mail message charge (if any).
Derby list is provided free of charge as a service to Internet horse racing fans. The Derby list may not be redistributed for profit. It costs me $50 per year in hosting fees for the list plus my time in maintaining the subscriber list manually to prevent spam from getting through.
