We have been slammed heavily by the blaster virus on our campus. Due
to internal problems with virus scanning software on the inbound and
outbound mail servers here I am planning on moving the Histonet mailing
list to a new server.
My plan is to move everyone that is subscribed to
firstname.lastname@example.org over to the new server in mass. This will
happen by monday or tuesday, Aug 18 or 19th. I am getting the new list
ready and once I move you over you will have access to a web page where
you can control your subscription preferences.
The most important characteristic of the new list server software is
that when you mail boxes are full and your message "bounces" then your
account will be automatically disabled and Linda and I will not have to
manually check for errors and manually maintain the list.
There will be a conventional email subscription access for those that
do not have a fast web browser. You will each have a password
associated with your subscription so that you can change your options
via email or the web.
Linda and I will be able to maintain the list via a web interface which
means that she will not have to come to my office to help maintain the
We hope that you will have an easy transition to the new server.
Please let Linda or myself know of any problems with the new service.
It will offer the digest and individual messages that have been so
important to all of you.
Once I move you, you will get a message that you will reply to in order
to confirm your subscription under the new software.
Wish us luck.
Once up the old address will be pointed to the new address......
