Email Lists

San Diego Chapter Email Lists

Get Connected on Chapter Email Lists

While those without computer email are still welcome to participate by attending Committee meetings, much Committee correspondence and notices and especially alerts requiring quick action, now take place on Chapter email lists (listservs). Listservs are an easy way to follow activities and get involved.

You must be a member in order to join a list and you can only post to the lists that you've joined. You may unsubscribe yourself at any time. The traffic on each list can vary greatly, from one post/week to sometimes several posts/day.

Click on a list name to go to the listinfo page. There you can subscribe, unsubscribe, and manage your list options.

Using the lists

  • Managing your account: Go to the listinfo page by clicking one of the links above.
    Look for the "Unsubscribe or edit options" button. Enter your email address and password and click the Login button. If you do not know your list password, you can have it sent to you. There is a "Remind" button at the bottom of the options page. Click that, and your password will be emailed to your email address.
  • You can set your own options to receive all messages, a summarized daily digest, or no messages. You will still be able to view the list archive and post messages, even if you elect not to get messages at all.
  • If you reply to a message from the list, your reply will only go to the person who posted the message. To reply to the whole list, use "Reply to All".
  • Do not use BCC when posting to the list, it will cause your message to bounce.
  • For best results in the archive and digests, send messages in plain text. They will be more readable in the archive than messages sent as html.
  • In the archive, attachments are separated from the messages. There is a url at the bottom of the message that links to the attachment. If you click on it, you get the option to open it or download it. If you want to open it, you will need to select the appropriate program based on what the attachment is.
  • For best results with attachments, save the file you want to attach as .rtf. That format can be opened by Word, Wordpad, and Wordperfect, so it will be available to the most people. It is also gives a much smaller file than saving a document in native Word or Wordperfect format, without losing the formatting.
  • The archive software "disables" html attachments to prevent some types of hostile messages from running unwanted software. That means that if you append a web page as an attachment, it will not be viewable as a web page in the archive. It is much better to send a link to the page anyway, rather than trying to append the page as an attachment, since it will usually be missing parts when it arrives.
  • You can see the list of members on the listinfo page, in case you are curious about who you are sending to. Only list members can view the subscriber list.
  • If you would like to get back a copy when you send a message to the list, to verify that it was sent, you can set an option on your account. On the options page, look for: "Receive your own posts to the list?" and set it to "Yes".
