This is for your information only. Please don't respond to the list.
Rootsweb is changing to new list management software! The change
may have already begun. To see the planned schedule see
Any differences you notice should be minor:
The "-L" is being dropped from the official list name, but you will
be able to both subscribe and post using the "old" name, with the
-L, or the new one without it. If you use email headers to filter
list mail in your email program, your filters may need adjusting.
Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the layout,
volume and issue numbers of the list digests. New instructions will
be added to the digests -- please read them. If your digests
arrive in a different format than you are used to and you would
like it changed, contact me.
If you are subscribed to the list in both L(ist) and D(igest) modes
using the same email address, you will find that you will no longer
be subbed to the Digest after the move. The new software doesn't
permit the same address to be subbed in both L and D modes. If you
want to continue to be subbed to both the list posts and the
digest, you will need to use two different email addresses.
If you run into anything unusual or confusing with mail from this
list that could be related to the changeover, let me know.
If you have any questions about the new system, again please don't
write to the list. You may email me privately, but since I will be
learning this new system along with all members the best way to get
information is to get it from the source. A tutorial on the MailMan
software can be found at
http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/mailman_admin_tutorial.pdf . Also
there is a mailing list that anyone can join at
I'm looking forward to the new and hopefully improved system.
