GENSHEET email list
How the list works
The subscribers send emails to the list address firstname.lastname@example.org and they are then copied out to all the subscribers, including back to the sender.
For easy sorting the messages have [Gensheet] added to the title. This enables you to set up your email programme to filter email with [Gensheet] in the subject line into a
separate folder. This is fairly standard across other groups as well.
As for content that is mainly down to you, although there are several regular postings concerning weekly engineering works. The 'WEEKEND' posting is usually posted by me on Thursday, covering diversions and bus substitutes, while a 'Possible moves' posting lists likely crossover use where trains restart at unusual places. GENSHEET is not about railtours using rare
track so please keep those items for the Railtour-News list.
Please note that initial subscriptions are moderated to prevent spam reaching the list. This will delay your first post by up to a day. The list also does not accept file attachments in emails as a virus prevention measure. Files may however be uploaded into the group filespace, and then just send a message to tell everyone that it is there.
Setting up your inbox for Outlook / Outlook Express
Using Outlook Express you go Tools|Inbox assistant|Add and get the following screen :
Type [gensheet] in the subject box and pick the folder you want your Gensheet messages to go in the 'Move to' box. In the example I have created a folder called List:Gensheet. The procedure for Mozilla Thunderbird, Netscape Messenger and Opera Mail are similar.
