[ct-user] Fwd: Some reminders
Mon, 03 Dec 2001 11:29:48 -0800
I will forward (without permission of course) this mail from n7wa, who states the obvious, but important list reminders that are applicable to this list:
>Date: Mon, 03 Dec 2001 10:25:20 -0800
>Subject:  Some reminders
>When the number of bouncing posts regularly exceeds
>the amount of non-bounce mail I receive - it's time
>for some reminders.
>Many of our subscribers use forwarding type e-mail accounts.
>I have no problem with that.
>However, please be aware that when the end (hidden) account
>becomes discombobulated ("inactive" for our non-english
>readers) for some reason, I get stuck with your bouncing
>mail and trying to figure out who you are based on what I
>have. The excite@home mess over the weekend is a good
>example. If you have a forwarding address that doesn't
>provide me with clues as to who you are (like a call or
>name) - I'm stuck with a fast filling inbox and NO way to
>turn you off. Even with clues, it's hit or miss sometimes.
>So, if you have a forwarding account (like firstname.lastname@example.org),
>you need to be proactive in managing your e-mail lists.
>I would be happy to help you update your account.
>While we are at it, during these very busy periods
>(4 major contests in the space of 5 weeks), check your
>inbox once in a while and empty it out. I have had
>to unsubscribe a number of overflowing accounts. You
>can also turn it off if you expect to be away.
>All in all, this is a great list with few problems. But
>you do need to maintain your account(s).
