What does "pl" mean?

Generally, asking for step by step instructions on a peer support 
mailing list is not a productive use of the list.  If someone is 
prepared to write you a step by step guide on the list, they would have 
been prepared to do it and leave it on a web site.

The most effective use of a list is to try to do something yourself and 
then ask for help on the specific problems, as you encounter them, and 
after you have searched for solutions.

As a start though, you will need to install a supported OS and subscribe 
to a supported IM service.  Looking at your email headers, your OS may 
be supported.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
