Advanced Listserv – Get

The get command enables you to retrieve files from the list server that were listed by the index command.

get <listname> <filename>

You have to remember one strange thing to make this work: the <listname> is returned in the filename column of the index command, and the <filename> you want to retrieve is returned in the filetype column of the index command. This sort of thing makes people suspect that the designers don’t want to make it easy for you, but now you know the secret.
