JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen AOL 8.0: the Consensus! #general

TomHennie <tomhennie@...>

Dear Genners,

So far there have been 15 replies to my query about potential problems with
upgrading to 8.0. And 15 people have written asking about the consensus. So
here goes...Everyone who has upgraded said that there were no problems
until one tried to send a message to the group. As Dick Plotz
wrote, "Versions of AOL after 5.0 have been highly restricted in their
ability to send messages in plain text which is required by JewishGen's
list moderation software." Most users of 8.0 wrote to say that they get
around this problem by logging on to and submitting messages using
AOL's "mail on the Web" site. I have just written to AOL to see if I can
have both versions (5.0 and 8.0) on my software at the same time. That way
I can use 5.0 for posting messages to JewishGen. Thanks again to everyone
who replied to my query.
