Mailing lists at RootsWeb
There are two versions of each list to choose from:
The list form,
maillist-L, is for individual messages to be delivered to your
As subscribers send messages to the list address,
you will receive a copy of each message as a separate mailing. To subscribe
send an e-mail message to: list-L-request with one word in the body
of the message: subscribe.
The digest form,
list-D, is for a digest of several accumulated messages to be
delivered to your email address. As each subscriber to the list
sends messages to the list address, they are put into a digest
to be delivered later. The digest is generated approximately once a day
and delivered to digest subscribers. This option is handy for people
who don't want multiple messages to accumulate in their mail
box. To subscribe send an email message to:
list-D-request with one word in the body of the message: subscribe.
Once your subscription request has been processed by the SmartList server
at Rootsweb, you will receive a welcome note with instructions on how to
post messages to the list, how to
unsubscribe, and how to contact the list owner if you have any problems.
Mailing address for postings is firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be a subscriber to post to the list.
To subscribe send the following to
