I've gotten a request to help someone shut off TSE mail
for a bit. With summer vacation time here (sorry Peter D.)
it seems that I should make public what I've found.

Select "Subscriber's Corner".
On the new page select the tab entitled "My Settings" to get
Now I haven't actually tried this but it *should* work:
Select the check box to the left of "TSE" (under the "List names"
column). On the same line as "TSE" under the "Mail Status" column
the statu "Mail" should be shown. At the very bottom of the column
use the choice box to select "No Mail" and in the lower right
corner select the "Submit" button. If this works like I think it
should you have just disabled the List Server from sending you
mail until you change your status again.
There are a couple of alternative vacation plans for you though.
Keep the mail coming but change the "Mail Style". "Regular" sends
individual posts as they arrive at the server. "Digest" causes
the server to collect a bunch of posts and then send one email
to you once in awhile (probably once a day) with the collection.
You still get to read posts when you get back but you don't have
as much TSE messages to sort though. The next option is "Index".
This is like digest but instead of getting the messages you get
a list of header information for each post with instructions on
to retrieve the posts of interest to you.
