This www.sunnyvaleares.org server runs a mailing list for general
discussion that is open to any interested hams. The Sunnyvale ARES
general discussion list is called
- sares-list _(@)_ sunnyvaleares.org
and it is sufficient to include only the list address in the e-mail
distribution, there is no need to do extra Cc: to members who already
get a copy of the message through the list server. In fact, copying
too many other recipients will delay the message as it will be held
for moderator approval.
There is a private
archive set up for this mailing list, which is updated with each
new message. You need to log into the mailman interface with your
e-mail as username and the password on record.
How to subscribe and unsubscribe
The mailing list server of sunnyvaleares.org runs on a machine
that is called bsi.athm.net, using the
GNU Mailman software package.
To subscribe to the list or to even unsubscribe from the list you always
have to communicate with the list server, never with the list itself.
Well, mailman hopefully filters on some of the keywords such as 'subscribe'
in order to spare the entire list population having to see those
kind of messages.
Each message contains a footer reminding you of the list info URL, and
please follow the instructions there. Then entire subscription management
is done via the web interface.
Please also consider the following rule: the list is a members list
only, so in order to send a message to the list you have to be
subscribed to the list with the exact same e-mail address that appears
in the 'From:' line of your e-mail messages. To date, this has been the
most effective way of banning SPAM (unsolicited commercial e-mail) from
all the mailing lists that I host on my servers.
