that keeps track of members addresses, and also allows
them to 'unsubscribe' themselves at any time, plus other

yourself from this group any time you want -- although we
hope you won't.
- I am going to
encourage members to create
a "Mail Rule", which will automatically put
messages from this group into a separate
mailbox, and not
clutter your inbox. See Section C below.
- Please avoid
sending excessive messages, or any "chit-chat" type
messages, as people
will unsubscribe if
they get too many messages with information that is not
really useful to them.
Using The Listserver:
- Members only, can send
a message to the entire group by using the address
. Put this address in your address book, so it will
always be correct.
- You can view the
home page, but
all messages will come to you through email.
- To join this group,
contact the moderator James Ingram (use link at
bottom for phone or email). You must be a "hill"

Up A Free Google Gmail

Real Email Address (Outlook
Express or whatever)
Up A 'Rule' to Sort Mail Inside
use this ONLY if you're not forwarding the mail. I
recommend forwarding it to your Outlook Express if you
have one, as described in the previous link.
- Yahoo free email:
I don't think you can forward from the free Yahoo
account. You might consider setting up a free Google
Gmail (gmail.com) address, and forwarding it to your
Comcast or Verizon account's email address, where you can

Additional Comments Re
Free Email Programs:
The majority of the computer jocks seem to think that Google
