MORGAN AREA GENEALOGY
(ILMAGA) MAILING LIST
NEW INFORMATION RE ROOTSWEB MAILING LISTS
Morgan Area Genealogy is a mailing list for the discussion and sharing of information regarding genealogical resources
available in central and west central Illinois.
Rootsweb has a new mail server which will affect the address previously used. The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. This means the "from" address your mailing list emails come from will be slightly different - ListName@rootsweb.com vs. the current
You may have to adjust your spam filters or
put the new address on your "accept" list to prevent it from being
caught in your "junk" folder.
You must be a subscriber to post to the list.
TO SUBSCRIBE: Send the word
"subscribe" (without the quotes) as the only text in the body of the message to:
This address is for both the mail mode and the digest mode.
NEW RULES REGARDING DIGEST MODE:
Are you subscribed to both the regular and digest modes of a list with a single email address?
The new list management system does not support a single email address being subscribed to both the mail (regular delivery) and the digest at the same time.
This means you will no longer be able to receive both the digest and the regular delivery (“-L”) versions of the list at the same email address. If you are currently subscribed to both “-L” and “-D” with the same address, you will only continue to be subscribed to regular delivery when the list is migrated. You will need to subscribe to the list digest with a different email address.
Subscribers who subscribe in both the list and digest modes using
the same email address will no longer be able to do so. You may still
subscribe to both but you will need to use two email address. You can
always use a free Internet account such as hotmail, yahoo or gmail.
