Subject: Fw: Another UPDATE - From the admin - please read - software changes for lists
Date: Sun, 27 Aug 2006 16:51:35 -0700
Hello again list members,
Rootsweb says the problem with AOL rejecting lists on the new server has
been resolved. So the migration of lists is supposed to continue this week,
with the following migration schedule: Lists D-F on Monday, August 28, Lists
G-I on Tuesday, August 29, Lists J-L on Wednesday, August 30, and Lists M-O
on Thursday, August 31.
I'll let you know if there are any changes to this newest schedule.
