During the wee hours of the morning, this SIG Discussion group, along with
all the others have been fully migrated over to a new JewishGen server which is set up specifically for handling mailing lists. Anyone posting to this list during the migration period probably experienced a "your are not subscribed to this list message". You probably caught us in the process of moving the subscriber list >from one machine to the other. <grin>
To post to this list, send email to: email@example.com
To unsubscribe, send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE NOTE the change in the address >from "MAIL.jewishgen.org " to
"LYRIS.jewishgen.org". (in caps only for emphasis)
This simply references a change in machines that is handling the requests.
The Lyris software has many variations on a theme, with some unsubscribing
instructions appearing at the bottom of each message. BOTH options will
WORK so not to worry! <grin> We have also migrated the WEBFORM on the
JewishGen site to handle the subscribe and unsubscribe requests as well if
you prefer to use it.
The purpose of this message is to advise you NOT to panic if you see
different things. You can use whatever you are more comfortable with, 1)
you can follow the instructions posted on the bottom of the message or 2)
you can use the WEBFORM on the JewishGen site or 3) you can use the same
command language you have used in the past.
Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be training the list
administrators for each SIG mailing list on the features they need to know
to manage the mailing lists more effectively. We will also be making the
subscribers aware of a host of new features available to you as well. We
will try to do this in an orderly and effective manner so as not to cause
to much disruption on the day to day operation of each of the mailing
lists. Whatever had worked for you in the past should continue to work for
you... so implementing the new features are OPTIONAL at this point.
JewishGen will have several trained volunteers who will be able to answer
any questions regarding the new server software. There are many new
features built in for which we will make you aware as soon as we have
completed our final testing and evaluation period.
For now, we simply wanted to make the migration in an "as is" basis.
If you experience any problems, please direct them to:
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused... but once all the
features are fully implemented, we believe >from both sides of the fence we
will all enjoy the results this new software and server have to offer.
On behalf of a very weery JewishGen support team... <grin>
