You can only post from the email address with which you subscribed to the listserv.

You can only post if you're subscribed to the listserv.

No attachments or embedded graphics (including stationery or fancy signatures) are allowed (in consideration of virus dangers and slower connections).
-- Instead including a link to a web page where the information could be viewed.

Posts must be composed in plain text (if sent in html message will be blank).
2 recipient limit (# of email addresses the post is sent to).

No addresses allowed in the BCC field.
Email size limit of 200K (1000K = 1M) in deference to slower connections

--To keep the size of your post down delete the older posts that show up at the bottom when you reply to a topic. Maybe just sum up what you're referring to instead of including all the emails that have already been posted

If you go on vacation you might consider un-subscribing to all your lists so you don't come home to a zillion emails.

If you put an autoresponder on your email then definitely un-subscribe to all lists.

You can change your subscription to DIGEST to receive only 1 or 2 Digest emails instead of every single message posted to the listerv that day. In the Digest email you'll see the headers and senders of all posts received that day. You can scroll down to read them all. Please realize there will be a delay, since Digests are sent only once or twice a day.

To be a "Digest" member please send an email to listmanager@mcn.org and specify the list on which you want your subscription changed to Digest. Or call MCN 9-6 Monday through Friday and ask for the List Manager.

NOTE: If you've questions about your subscriptions always specify to which listservs you're referring and under which email address you're subscribed.

To determine to which listservs you're subscribed look at the emails in your inbox or folder. Listserv posts always have the listname in the subject of the email
i.e. [MCN-Announce] or Announce Digest.

Any other questions regarding listservs direct to listmanager@mcn.org
