1. Posting a message
a. Send your message to the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
b. All messages should include the sender’s name, credentials, and return email address within the BODY of the email message. This will allow members to reply to the sender directly rather than the whole group when necessary.
c. Please make your subject line as specific as possible. This allows members to decide whether or not the message is something they would like to open and take time to read.
d. Messages should reflect content that is of interest to the members of the group. Personal messages to one individual should be sent privately to that person and NOT posted to the list.
e. Comments of a political or religious nature are prohibited.
f. Attachments are NOT allowed to be sent to the elist.
2. Responding to a message
a. If you would like to respond to the whole group simply hit reply, draft your message and send. This allows for excellent information sharing.
b. When responding to individuals, i.e., “Thank You”, “Job Well Done”, “Great Job”, please email the individual directly rather
than through the elist.
c. When asking for copies of things or more information about a topic, please email the individual directly rather than through the elist.
First time Elist tips:
~ Your email response or question will go to everyone on the email list, including you.
~ If you join the list in the middle of a discussion or question, you may only see someone’s answer, but not the question. If you would like to know the question, inquire on the list for a history of the discussion.
