Subject: [EDM] ADMIN - Checking the list

If you have not yet added (without the -L) to
your addressbook, do so now while you are thinking of it. Don't
remove the old one yet, since some people will still use the old
address, and that will work for awhile.
*** If you are an AOL subscriber, it is *crucial* that you put the
new list address in your addressbook. ***
As I mentioned before, you can no longer subscribe to both the list
posts and the digests with the same email address. We were told that
if you were subscribed previously in both modes that you'd be
transferred in LIST mode and DIGEST mode would be dropped for
you. It appears that for our EDM* lists they did it the other
way. Anyone formerly subscribed to both is probably now getting
digests and not individual messages. I can fix that for you if
you'll let me know.
If you like getting the digests but don't like way the digests
arrive, let me know that, too. Changing your digest format to MIME,
which are easier for some OE users, is easy and should do what you want.
So - if you need a change made to your subscription, drop me a note
at EDMONDSON-admin address and tell me your preference and I'll
change it for you. In the future after all lists have moved you will
be able to do this for yourself, which should be useful to all.
One benefit of these ADMIN messages has been to purge the subscriber
list of some old non-working addresses. I think I may be done
sending them now. Thanks for your patience.
