We use Google Groups to manage our email group subscriptions. It’s easy to join!
If you do not want to set up a google account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request the groups you’d like to join. We will add you directly and you will receive all emails from the list, but will not be able to use the Google Groups interface.
To use Google Groups
First you need to have or set up a Google account. Once you join one of the email groups, you will receive messages from that group in your email. You may choose to receive one digest email a day with all the messages that have posted, or to view messages in the online forum only.
Request to join one of the groups. Please say why you want to join and where you live. This is the only way we can screen potential members and make sure we’re not getting spammers.
Once you requested to join the group and been accepted, you will receive a welcome email with instructions on posting to the group and replying to emails.
Contact the group by composing an email from your email account to the group address (the group address is listed at the footer of each email you receive from group members). Enter the group email address in your contacts for easy future reference.
If you want to make a comment on a post that everyone on the list will receive, you have 2 options:
1. Go to the online forum page (there will be a link at the bottom of each message you receive). SIGN IN, find the discussion and click “reply all.”
2. Click Reply in your email message, add the group email address in the “To” field. (ie, email@example.com).
If you reply to the message in your email inbox, your reply will only go to the individual who posted the last comment, not to the whole group.
If you still have questions or problems, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
