We are on the list, so now what do we do?
We send messages to the other subscribers!

Just before we do though, again there are a few things you should be aware of...

Some Mailing List Etiquette
  • Keep it short, sweet, and on the list's subject
    People are not likely to read long messages, bad language will not be tolerated and some list managers will boot you off the list if you persist in writing off the topic.
  • Be sure the subject line accurately reflects the message contents
    Send several messages, each with its own specific subject rather than a long message about lots of different things. People may skip your message if they don't think that the subject applies to them.
  • Make sure you are using the correct address
    List owners may or may not forward messages you send to them by mistake and no one else wants to know what commands you are sending.
  • Remember
    Everyone on the mailing list will get your message, not just the people who have posted messages on your particular topic.

Got all that? It's not too bad, is it?
