Hello Clara,  I have attached the info you need.

The best way to remove rust is to use something like Navel Jelly .  Check
out your local True-Value Hardware store.  They also have a blue liquid
rust remover/paint primer that leaves a coating of zinc phosphate after the
phosphoric acid does its work.
Good luck (use gloves)

Your subscription to the LETPRESS  list (Letterpress Discussion List) has
been accepted.

Please save this message for future  reference, especially if you are not
familiar with LISTSERV.  This might look like a waste  of disk space now,
but in  6 months  you will be  glad you saved  this information  when you
realize that  you cannot remember what  are the lists you  are subscribed
to, or  what is the command  to leave the  list to avoid filling  up your
mailbox while you are on vacations. In fact, you should create a new mail
folder for subscription confirmation messages  like this one, and for the
"welcome  messages"  from the  list  owners  that you  will  occasionally
receive after subscribing to a new list.

To send  a message to  all the people  currently subscribed to  the list,
just send  mail to LETPRESS@UNB.CA. This  is called "sending mail  to the
list",  because you  send mail  to a  single address  and LISTSERV  makes
copies   for  all   the  people   who  have   subscribed.  This   address
(LETPRESS@UNB.CA) is also  called the "list address". You  must never try
to send any  command to that address,  as it would be  distributed to all
the  people  who have  subscribed.  All  commands  must  be sent  to  the
"LISTSERV         address",        LISTSERV@UNBVM1.CSD.UNB.CA         (or
LISTSERV@UNBVM1.BITNET).  It   is  very   important  to   understand  the
difference between  the two, but  fortunately it is not  complicated. The
LISTSERV address  is like a  FAX number, and the  list address is  like a
normal phone  line. If  you make  your FAX  call someone's  regular phone
number by  mistake, it will be  an unpleasant experience for  him but you
will probably be excused the first time. If you do it regularly, however,
he will probably get upset and send you a nasty complaint. It is the same
with mailing lists, with the difference  that you are calling hundreds or
thousands of people at the same time, so a lot more people get annoyed if
you use the wrong number.

You  may leave  the list  at  any time  by sending  a "SIGNOFF  LETPRESS"
can also tell LISTSERV how you want it to confirm the receipt of messages
you  send to  the list.  If you  do  not trust  the system,  send a  "SET
LETPRESS REPRO"  command and LISTSERV  will send you  a copy of  your own
messages, so  that you can see  that the message was  distributed and did
not get  damaged on  the way.  After a while  you may  find that  this is
getting annoying, especially if your mail  program does not tell you that
the message  is from you  when it informs you  that new mail  has arrived
will mail you a short  acknowledgement instead, which will look different
in  your  mailbox  directory.  With  most mail  programs  you  will  know
immediately that this is an  acknowledgement you can read later. Finally,
you can  turn off  acknowledgements completely  with "SET  LETPRESS NOACK

Following  instructions from  the list  owner, your  subscription options
have been  set to "REPRO"  rather than  the usual LISTSERV  defaults. For
more  information about  subscription  options, send  a "QUERY  LETPRESS"

Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can get a
list  of the  available  archive  files by  sending  an "INDEX  LETPRESS"
can then  order these  files with  a "GET  LETPRESS LOGxxxx"  command, or
using  LISTSERV's database  search  facilities. Send  an "7INFO  DATABASE"
command for more information on the latter.

Please note that  it is presently possible for anybody  to determine that
you are signed  up to the list  through the use of  the "REVIEW" command,
which returns the e-mail address and  name of all the subscribers. If you
do not want your name to be  visible, just issue a "SET LETPRESS CONCEAL"

More  information on  LISTSERV  commands  can be  found  in the  LISTSERV
reference  card, which  you can  retrieve  by sending  an "INFO  REFCARD"
