[Vision2020] About the new list
Thu, 12 Dec 2002 15:02:46 -0800
Here are things about the new list:
o upon initally moving the list, a "welcome/how-to/password" message
will be set to each of the 391 subscribers.
o individuals will now be able to modify their preferences for mail
delivery, mail type (text, html, mime), etc. There's a NOMAIL option
that allows you to stay on the list but temporarily suspect delivery
when on vacation, etc.
o archives will be visually changed. past archives will remain available
in the old format. new archives will be kept in a new format. I'll
have to make two different links.
o I can make the subscriber list public or private. I assume you want
it public. Its public now in the old format.
o I can make the list require confirmation of subscription (or not).
That means if you submit a subscribe request, we send you back an email
asking that you confirm the reqest by replying to that message. That
prevents unscrupulous persons from subscribing other folks.
o Unsubscribes can only be done by the individual with their password or
by the administrator (me).
o no disruption in service is expected.
o stuff happens.
