Subject: Expect to see some changes

RootsWeb is beginning the process of switching over to new upgraded
list management software. For List subscribers, the changeover should
be smooth, although you may notice a few little differences in the
way your mail displays on your computer. The changes primarily
involve the administration tools that keep the list running behind
the scenes. Once all the transitions are complete and mailing list
moderators have had time to work with their administrative tools
"behind the scenes," there will be several improvements to offer
subscribers, but that won't happen for a few weeks yet. We'll keep
you posted on when they become available.
Here's what you need to know now:
The JEFFERIES List is scheduled for "migration" on Wednesday, August 30.
All RootsWeb list names will be officially changed to delete the -L
and -D designations, so this list will become just "JEFFERIES." You
may subscribe or unsub by sending your request to:
-- with one exception. If you wish to
subscribe in Digest mode you must send your subscribe request to
. The word "subscribe" or
"unsubscribe" must be included in the SUBJECT and may also be
included in the message body.
Digest subscribers will notice some changes to the list digests. New
instructions will be added to the digests -- please read them. In
addition, the digest volume and issue number may be different (out of
sequence) from what you had been receiving. If your digests arrive in
a different format than you are used to and you would like it
changed, contact me privately at the list admin address:
. Also, if you run into any unusual or
confusing occurrences with mail from this list that could possibly be
related to the changeover, let me know.
If you use email headers to filter list mail to a special folder in
your email program you may need to check whether your filters will
need tweaking under the new system.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you previously subscribed to the list in both L
and D modes using the same email address you will find that you are
no longer subbed in Digest mode. The new software doesn't permit the
same address to be subbed in both L and D modes and defaults to List
mode. Therefore, if you wish to receive both modes, you will need to
subscribe to the digests using a different email address.
Please continue to send your queries, data, and responses to the list
as usual. It is a great time to post a new query to try to break down
those brick walls.
