About Mailing Lists

Mailing lists are remarkably simple beasties: you send a piece of e-mail to the list's address, and the list retransmits that message to everyone who is subscribed. You must be a subscriber to post to any list hosted by rootsweb EXCEPT for ROOTS-L.

All Lists Have Two Addresses

Every mailing list really has two addresses: the list name, where posts should be sent, and the list name followed by -request, where commands to the listserver software should be sent. For example, posts to ROOTS-L should go to ROOTS-L@rootsweb.com while "subscribe" and "unsubscribe" requests should go to ROOTS-L-request@rootsweb.com.

List Modes Affect How You Receive Posts

Mailing lists can operate in any of three modes:

Besides those lists, the default mode for a list is sometimes called listname-L. For example, the default mode of ROOTS-L is DIGEST, so ROOTS-L really is three lists: ROOTS-L, ROOTS-M, and ROOTS-I.

Be aware, though, that many lists (especially small ones) do not adhere to these conventions.


How to Subscribe and Unsubscribe

It's easy -- just click on the list you want. When the "mail-to" window pops up, write just the single word "subscribe" in the body of the message. That's all.

If you want to unsubscribe from a list, click on it and write just the single word "unsubscribe" in the body of the message.
