B.   PURPOSE

The ORMARION-L-request@rootsweb.com Mailing List is an e-mail list for genealogical research in Marion County, Oregon. Anybody having questions can converse with other people on the list.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C.   TWO VERSIONS TO CHOOSE FROM:

Example-L is for individual messages to be delivered to your e-mail address. As each subscriber to the list sends messages to the list address, you will receive a copy of the message. To subscribe send an e-mail message to: ORMARION-L-request@rootsweb.com with one word in the body of the message: subscribe

Example-D is for a digest of several accumulated messages to be delivered to your email address. As each subscriber to the list sends messages to the list address, they are put into a digest to be delivered later. The digest is generated approximately once a day and delivered to digest subscribers. This option is handy for people who don't want multiple messages to accumulate in their mail box. To subscribe send an email message to: ORMARION-D-request@rootsweb.com with one word in the body of the message: subscribe

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

D.   E-MAIL ADDRESSES TO USE:

There are two separate e-mail addresses to use in order to participate in this list:
  1. To send MESSAGES to ALL subscribers on either version of the list use:
    1. ORMARION-L@rootsweb.com
  2. To send COMMANDS to the computer & SmartList software that runs this list use:

  3.  
    1. ORMARION-L-request@rootsweb.com     (for individual messages)

    2. ORMARION-D-request@rootsweb.com    (for a digest of multiple messages)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

E.   SENDING COMMANDS TO SMARTLIST & ROOTSWEB:

To subscribe, unsubscribe or make other changes to your mailing list subscription, you will send "commands" to the computer & the SmartList software on RootsWeb.
 
ORMARION-L-request@rootsweb.com      (for individual messages)
ORMARION-D-request@rootsweb.com      (for a digest of multiple messages)
  • To manage your subscription, send an e-mail message to the address above and use any of the following commands, typed within the body of your e-mail message. Type ONLY one of the commands as it is shown below. Do not add any extra words or lines of text:
  • Do NOT use a signature file attached to the e-mail message. The software reads your message and tries to answer each command it finds. When it runs across your signature file it gets a bit confused and will send you a message stating something like 'Do not recognize command 'Jones'. Do not recognize command "Smith", etc.
