474To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
475official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
476"nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
477that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
478Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
479but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
480address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
481<c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
482You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
483and work email addresses.
