Hi all -
Our list was successfully moved to RootsWeb's new mailing list system
late last night. I would be interested in hearing about any problems
which result from the move. Email me at .
The address for sending messages to the list has changed. The list
name no longer contains the -L. is now the
preferred list address. If you mistakenly use the old address it
should work, but try to get used to sending To: .
Some ISPs have been having problems recognizing that the messages on
the newly moved lists are not spam. Check your spam filters. You
may need to put the new list address (without the -L) in your address
book to prevent it from being filed in your Junk or Spam folder.
AOL subscribers - If problems which occurred last week recur, be
aware that there might a temporary delay in receiving list mail (on
AOL's end) and also to be careful to check your spam folders. If you
find any list mail in there be sure to click the THIS IS NOT SPAM
button and read the mail in their inbox so that the filters will be
trained with regard to the new server.
The email address for unsubscribing will be found in a footer on each
list message. It is and will be used
for subscribers to either list or digest mode. It is also the
subscribe address for what used to be the -L list. When you subscribe
or unsubscribe you must write the appropriate word (subscribe or
unsubscribe) in the Subject: line. Putting it in the message will no
longer work by itself. but you can include it if you want to.
Don't send Bcc: messages to lists. There is rarely a need to send
the same message to more than one list and Bcc's may well not work as
you might want them to.
If you filter your email into different mailboxes you may need to
tweak your filters, as headers you filter on may have changed. [EDM]
will continue to be in the subject line for this list, and the
X-Loop: header will continue to give the list name. If your filters
say EDMONDSON-L, you will need to remove the -L.
The list information on
http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/e/edmondson.html will change
sometime after all the lists get moved. That link still shows this
list with the -L in the name and gives incorrect
subscribe/unsubscribe addresses. The links on that page to the
archived posts should work, however. The list archives won't go away.
Subscribing to the digest remains as it
was: mailto:. However, you may no
longer subscribe to both the digest and the list modes with the same
email address. To get messages both ways you'll have to have the
digest sent to another address. I will try to contact anyone who has
lost their digest subscription because of the move.
If you get the digest (EDMONDSON-D) it may look a little
different. I may be able to help you get it back to close to the way
it looked before. Email me for help.
If you have any questions; if things seem to have changed in the way
you get your email; if you are as confused; contact me at
. I'll see what I can do to help.
