Cross Posting

If your question is specifically about eQUEST, HAP, or TRACE, IES-VE, please post your question to the eQUEST-users, HAP-users, TRACE-users or Virtual-Sim mailing lists first. If you haven't gotten an answer within a day or so, feel free to post the question to the BLDG-SIM mailing list.

Help, I Can't Post

90% of the time if you cannot post it is because you are sending from a different email address than the one you originally subscribed from. Please see “Changing Options” below to fix this. You can even change your email address for all of the mailing lists at once.

Changing Options

Go to the main web page

Click on the link on the left for the mailing list you want to change your options on. At the bottom of the page for the specific mailing list, in the field near the button “unsubscribe or edit options” enter your email address and press that button. The next page will ask for a password, if you don't remember yours click on the remind button and one will be emailed to you. From this page you can change to digest mode or your email address or other options.


Each of the building energy simulation mailing lists have archives of the messages posted. There is a good chance you can find the answer you are looking for by searching the archives. Go to

In each paragraph about the mailing list is a link to the archives. You can search that list from that page. In addition, you can use Google to search the entire site across all mailing lists by going to:

Digest Mode

If you would rather receive a single email each day with all of the messages within it, you can use Digest Mode. See the “Changing Options” section above to turn on Digest Mode.

Subject Lines

For BLDG-SIM, if the question is about a specific simulation program, please include the name of the simulation program in the subject line.

If you are replying to a message in a digest, please see the section below.

Replying to a Digest

If you receive a digest, when replying to a message in the digest, please copy the original subject line and don't include the entire digest when replying. Just include the original message.
