Mailing Lists: Subscribing
 

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 e-mail address. 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.
