Welcome to the TERWILLIGER mailing list!
How to Subscribe and UnsubscribeIt's easy -- just click on the list you want.
When the "mail-to" window pops up, write just the single word "subscribe" in the body of the message. That's all.
If you want to unsubscribe from a list, click on it and write just the single word "unsubscribe" in the body of the message.
Mailing lists are remarkably simple beasties: you send a piece of e-mail to the list's address, and the list retransmits that message to everyone who is subscribed.
You must be a subscriber to post to any list hosted by rootsweb.
Mailing list really have two addresses: the list name, where posts should be sent, and the list name followed by -request, where commands to the listserver software should be sent.
For example, posts to ROOTS-L should go to ROOTS-L@rootsweb.com while "subscribe" and "unsubscribe" requests should go to ROOTS-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org.
modes: MAIL mode, where every post is sent to subscribers as a separate piece of e-mail. MAIL mode requires a great deal of effort by the listserving computer.
MAIL mode lists are often named listname-M. DIGEST mode, where about twenty posts are batched together and then sent to the subscribers.
Digests produce less
clutter in your mailbox, but replying to
an individual message may require a little extra effort.
Digest mode lists are often named listname-D.
That's it - it's all pretty simple.
If you have any questions about these procedures, please e-mail Listowner of TERWILLIGER:
