receiving multiple digests and duplicate emails #Help

family.and.dna@...
 

I've been receiving both individual mails AND digests. I've received several different digests just today!

I have gone into my subscriptions & changed it to individual emails instead of digests, if this doesn't work to get rid of the digests I will repost...

(I also put in a signature, it would be maybe good to add a piece of text on the window where you can create a signature, saying the max length? And also maybe it would be nice to see the signature when writing an email online?)

Hi Diane,
At the bottom  of each digest should be a link to "Your Subscription."  Click on that, and you'll get to a page with four choices how to receive postings:

Email Delivery

Individual Messages You will receive each message in an individual email.
Full Featured Digest Group up to 12 messages together as one email instead of being sent individually (rich formatting).
Daily Summary A daily summary, delivered in the morning, of the group's messages from the previous day.
Special Notices Only You will only receive special notices from the moderators.

You'll probably see the 2nd option is selected - change that to the first one.  (The image above is from my settings, ,and I already changed them.)

1. So I’m trying to reply to Hilary Henkin, and I don’t see her email address. How can I reply directly to her/him?
Then, when I press “reply to group,” all I get is an email address of “main@groups” and No copy of the message to which I am “replying” is enclosed. That makes no sense! How will anyone know to what I am “replying”?

2. For years and years, I could read my Digest delivery once a day and it was clearcut and effective. Now, WHY, am I receiving 8-10 emails a day from JewishGen? Why doesn’t my all-in one true digest form stay as is? BTW, I definitely do Not want to receive individual emails.

3. I also tried to change the style of my subscription in which I receive these emails. I wasn’t successful in finding a way to do that. I simply do not understand why every person needs to formally change their subscription style. A stupid hassle.

Conclusion, One more day of this, and I will cut my cord with Jewishgen. That is a sad story as I am a long-time member (and even started a discussion group —SRRG).

Hi All,

Big thanks to Hilary Henkin for her helpful message "At the bottom  of each digest should be a link to "Your Subscription."  Click on that, and you'll get to a page with four choices how to receive postings ....   Individual Messages / Full Featured Digest / Daily Summary / Special Notices Only".

For me, using MS Outlook, "Your subscription" appears at the top rather than bottom of each digest, but it's certainly there.

Unfortunately, the original welcome post (title" Welcome to the JewishGen.org Discussion Group!) from the JG Discussion group was misleading.  It read "Subscription Settings: Your default setting is to receive a daily digest of messages. ...."  This suggested a daily summary, but was not the case for me, nor I suspect for many of us.  Instead I was defaulted to packs of 12 messages, arriving several times daily.  As Hilary writes, go to your subscription - and you may be asked to create a password, but this is a pretty quick and painless process - and change your setting to the one you prefer.   (A daily summary is what I want and now have).

To those questioning the lack pf messages from regional SIGs, this always happens over Jewish holidays.  The SIGs are working fine.

I wish the organisers & moderators all the best with instigating this new system that I am sure we will get more used to over time.  A bit like the mobile phone.  Or the car.  

Warmly, Joyaa, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

I do not have a link at the bottom of these digests to changer how often I receive them.  This is what is at the bottom of the digests I am receiving:
"You are receiving this email because you are subscribed to main@... via msnodrog@.... You can unsubscribe here"

Please go back to the old format.  This new format, getting multiple emails is very annoying!

User-friendly sites have a Preferences button for managing
subscriptions, etc. I could find no such option here.

I did discover what appears to be a quick and easy way to change your
subscription preference to Daily Summary (i.e. only 1 email per day):

Click on "Unsubscribe" at the bottom of the digest (or individual
message, I presume). This opens a page with several options. Select
"Switch to Daily Summary". I hope this works. Not very intuitive, but
I had a feeling that if I "threatened" to unsubscribe, I might be
offered other options!

Oops, I just received another digest! Does this mean that my request
for one per day did not take effect? I'll see what happens tomorrow.

Hilary,


You suggested,

"At the bottom  of each digest should be a link to "Your Subscription."  Click on that, and you'll get to a page with four choices how to receive postings"

There is no such link any place on the digests I've been receiving.


Btw, you message was in Digest #13, the SIXTH digest message I've received from JewishGen today. This definitely is not what I want.


On the other hand, having links to the messages in a summary at the top of each digest is a good feature, long overdue. However, what we need to accompany that feature is a link to "Top" that is located at each message in the digest.

I don’t have an option to switch to daily so I sent a message to Help asking them to do it. Hope it works.

There is a daily option. Please go to your individual page and note how you want message delivery (see example below)

Email Delivery

Individual Messages You will receive each message in an individual email. Full Featured Digest Group up to 12 messages together as one email instead of being sent individually (rich formatting). Daily Summary A daily summary, delivered in the morning, of the group's messages from the previous day. Special Notices Only You will only receive special notices from the moderators.

Can someone tell me how to compose and send my own message without having to reply to something already posted?

 

I can’t believe I cannot find this feature anywhere.

 

Also: Is there a Lithuania SIG?  I didn’t see one in your list.

 

Pls advis

The Litvak SIG has a discussion group accessible from JewishGen's home page.

Updating pages and an entire website is the pits...been there, done that. When I go to the jewishgen.org mailing list management page  https://www.jewishgen.org/ListManager/

I am given these options:
 DIGEST — Receive daily digest with all the messages of the day
 INDEX — Receive daily index of the subject lines of the messages of the day
 MAIL — Receive mail as it is contributed
 NOMAIL — Receive no mail — Temporarily stop the mail

In the answers to organizing my responses for the new mailing group, these are my options:

Individual Messages - You will receive each message in an individual email.
Full Featured Digest - Group up to 12 messages together as one email instead of being sent individually (rich formatting).
Daily Summary - A daily summary, delivered in the morning, of the group's messages from the previous day.
Special Notices Only - You will only receive special notices from the moderators.

So, how and where can I access the new mailing group preference? And do the old choices page still apply or will that eventually match the new pages?
