Subject: Re: unsubscribe
Dear Low and other Histonet subscribers:
If you have had trouble posting messages to the list or experience
difficulty getting on or off the Histonet list please see below.
If you receive the "send no enclosures" it means there is something in your
email system that needs adjusting (please read below).
If you receive the "welcome to Histonet message" every time you send a
message to the server it means your address has changed since you first
subscribed and you need to unsubscribe then get back on the list when the
messages stop (in a day or so). System upgrades often change your email
address slightly creating the problem. If you can't get off the list let me
know and I can take you off.
For those heading to the NSH meeting you may want to unsubscribe or switch
to the digest mode (send an email with subscribe digest in the subject line
to switch) before you head out of town . That will avoid the huge mail pile
up when you get back home.
Have a good trip.
PS I was too overwhelmed by work to get the Histonet button thing going this
year... sorry about that!
"Enclosures" are the same as "attachments" or "attached files" and there are
a number of ways that these might creep into your
First: Check your email program. Some like Claris Emailer and some
programs automatically attach little enclosures to email messages. These
are supposed to authenticate that the message was really sent by who put
their name on it. A security feature, but an unnecessary one. You should be
able to delete this.
Microsoft Explorer is set up to send email as an attachment unless the
defaults are changed. (see below)
1. You might have put enclosures in your mail by attaching a picture or text
file using a menu choice like "Insert file".
2. There might be graphics in your email template, either in the page
design or signature.
3. If you are sending using a web browser you may well be sending
embedded files without knowing it.
4. If you are sending via a word processor, the output may well be
bundled as a simple (just header and signature) email with the word
processor document file attached to it.
There are good reasons why attached files should not go over the
histonet: they can be very large and word processor files can transmit
macro viruses, to name but two. We've actually blown out servers all over by
having a large attachment go out over the net!
