to Track2 RailNet Listservers Page
Posting Tips (for
1. Posting Address
- Send to: Track2-RailNet@yahoogroups.com
. . -- you need to have announcers privileges to post
- Send me a copy the first
few times, in case the post does not work right. You can
use my address at the bottom of this page.
2. Suggested Subject Line
I recommend you format the
subject line similar to "date, city, event" --
so people can discern the date and location at a glance..
Pine Grv Mills, Open House NTRAK " . . . .
Wmspt, Whistle Stop Show"
The Listserver automatically
prepends the [Track2] subject tag onto the
front of the subject line.
Please don't attach flyers unless they
are in JPEG or GIF or PDF format, and compressed to
below 100 K size.
Email Addresses -- I
recommend you NOT include anyone's email address in the
body of the message, as there is always the possibily a
Spammer can get the address from the web archive page.
Yahoo will truncate your address if
you're the sender in the FROM line, but addresses in the
body are not truncated.
Test Listserver (optional)
Scope: You can
practice sending messages to a dummy Listserver, before
you post to the real Listserver.
The Track2-Test Listserver operates
essentially the same as to the Track2 RailNet -- or any
Listserver allowing html & attachments. The only
difference is that you are the only one who is subscribed
and getting the messages.
You will automatically have
"posting privileges" as soon as you subscibe.
Verifying The Message
Whenever you send a test
message, you should do the following 2 actions to
VERIFY the Listserver "broadcast" it:
- Check that you received a copy
of that email back from the Listserver.
- It will be identified by
the subject tag
- Verify it appears in the
Listserver message archives at
listsever for plain text
