Non-Archived Lists, Newsgroup Gateways, and -I lists
The LEAVELL list has not yet been migrated to the new Rootsweb mailing list
system (Mailman). When it is most of you will notice few if any changes.
However, there are a few things you might want to watch out for.
While the "migration" of the lists to a new server should process
uneventfully for list members, there are a few points that need to be
-- AOL USERS (and possibly some other ISPs)
Please check your spam folders, and, if you find list mail held as spam, you
will need to be sure to click the *THIS IS NOT SPAM* link to send the list
mail to your current mailbox. This will "train" the system to understand
that mail from this new server is not spam.
-- SUBSCRIBERS TO BOTH L and D MAIL MODES
If you are subscribed to both L & D mail modes of this list, the new system
is not set up to send both to the same email address. If you want to be
subscribed in both, it will be necessary to use another email address for
your digest mail.
If you are subscribed to the list in both mail modes with the same address,
you will be dropped from the list roster and put on the digest roster, so if
this happens to you, please resubscribe with another address (Yahoo Gmail
might be a good choice for an alternate email address). This will not effect
those who subscribe in either of the mail modes exclusively. Digest is
automatically set up in plain (text) format, if you want it in Mime you need
to contact me directly.
-- POSTING FROM MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT
If you want to post from more then one account, just send me the addresses
of the extra accounts and I will add them to the Accept List. This means you
can *post* from any of those accounts, while *receiving* the list mail from
the one you originally used to subscribe.
This feature is handy if you want to post from work but would prefer not to
receive Rootsweb mail at your place of business.
-- ADDRESS TO USE FOR POSTING MESSAGES, SUBSCRIBING, UNSUBSCRIBING
The list's email address will change from to
however, both addresses SHOULD continue to work for
the time being.
SUBSCRIBE and UNSUBSCRIBE messages *must* contain the word "subscribe" or
"unsubscribe" in the SUBJECT of the message (versus either subject or body,
as in the past).
In the event you receive an unsubscribe notice and believe it to be in
error, please contact me privately at and I'll
correct the problem.
-- CHANGE IN DIGESTS
Digest subscribers may 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 you use email headers to filter list mail to special folders, you will
probably need to tweak your filters once the new system begins.
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.
Thanks in advance to all of you and please don't hesitate to let me know if
you need assistance. Also, don't let this migration period keep you from
posting to the list.
Good luck with your search!
