Mailing lists are communities of people formed around a topic of common interest, and have been around since the beginning of the Internet. A mailing list allows people to send email to each other easily. Instead of emailing everyone on the list, subscribers of a mailing list can send their email to one address, which will then automatically send the message to everyone else. ONElist is a FREE service. The web-site is free and the mailing list services are free.
After you have subscribed to the list, you have access rights to post e-mails to the list. When you want to post an e-mail to the list, you have to post it to the following address:
We suggest that your first e-mail to the list will be an introduction of your self and your involvement in the breed. This way, existing members (approx. 300, Dec. '99) will know who you are.
'Digest mail' members:
NOTE! it is especially important that you, when subscribed to digest mail, remove most or all of the originally contents of the mail before hitting 'Send' in your mail application. Otherwise the next digest mail from the list will become to large for some members subscribed with free e-mail providers to view it.
'Normal mail' members:
Volume of mail to this list is substantial.
Note! If you want to reply privately to the sender, then you HAVE to change the recipient address to the one you want to post a mail to, after you hit the 'reply' button.
Remember to sign your e-mail, so we all know who the author is. Depending on the set-up in your mail application, the only other way to identify you is by your e-mail address, and that is sometimes not sufficient.
We will also like to remind you, that this is an international list and therefor suggest that you try to avoid abbreviations. What is obvious to you, might not be understandable for people on the other side of the globe.
You can subscribe, unsubscribe or change your subscription through simple e-mail commands. All you have to do is to send an e-mail to one of the below addresses, you do not need to write anything in the subject field or in the body of the message.
After you have sent the e-mail you will receive a confirmation e-mail which you will either have to reply to, or connect to the URL stated in the e-mail, this action will enable your subscription or changes.
Subscribe/Unsubscribe by e-mail:
With mailing lists, you have two subscription options. You can subscribe to the normal version (default) of the list, which means that every e-mail that is sent to the list is sent immediately to you. Or you can subscribe to the digest version of the list, which means that you will get one e-mail each night that contains all the e-mails sent to the list during the day. If more than 25 e-mails is sent to the list, a digest e-mail will be sent immediately. Currently (Dec. '98) this list receives 40-60 e-mails a day, which in turn generates 2-3 digest e-mails a day. We highly recommend you switch to digest mode.
