Welcome to the senegal mailing list!

If you ever want to remove yourself from this mailing list, you can send mail to senegal-request@wingscc.com with the following command in the body of your email message:

unsubscribe (your email address) Senegal

where your-email-address is the address your list messages you would like the list messages mailed to.

***************GENERAL INFORMATION****************

Here's the general information for the list you've subscribed to, in case you don't already have it:

Welcome to the Senegal email list!

(also consider joining the poiceph (Poicephalus) and jardine parrot mailing lists. Just substitute "poiceph" or "jardine" for "senegal") in the subscription message and send it to the same address (senegal-request@wingscc.com)

These lists can also be received by Digest. As a Digest member, you receive one messages a day with a collection of all the messages from the list in the past 24 hours. To join this list in Digest mode, FIRST unsubscribe if you are a normal member, then REsubscribe in digest mode with the following text in the body of the message:

subscribe senegal your-email-address digest

Send this message to senegal-request.wingscc.com

This is a relaxed, informative email list that is intended to allow discussions between people who are interested in Senegals. Many of these conversations have gone on privately over the last few years and this is just meant to act as a forum that will reach more people and collect the information as we all live with and learn from our feathered buddies.

I have predicted a few of your questions and answered them below, but feel free to send me email if anything is unclear. But first let me point out one item that inevitably gets people into trouble:

Let's say I post a message to the group. You get an email from me via the list server. If you then choose to reply from your mailer, the response will go to me, but it will ALSO go to everyone else on the list. If you want to reply to someone's message but don't want it to go to the whole list, either start a new "thread" (by creating a new message) or make sure that their message to you did not come through the mailing list. Of course if you get an email directly from someone the reply will go just to them.

So how does it work?

Just send your email to the internet email address:

senegal@wingscc.com

and your message will go to all of the email enabled Senegalophiles who have subscribed to the list. When you get an email from the list, just reply as you would to a message from an individual, but instead that message will go to all the mailing list subscribers.

Here are a few basics...

The account that manages the list is: senegal-request@wingscc.com You use this address when you:
- want to get help (send an email with just the word "help" in it, without quotation marks)
- want to subscribe to the mailing list
- want to unsubscribe to the mailing list

I recommend getting the help file. It is short and useful.

The address to send mail that goes to the people on the list is:
senegal@wingscc.com.

So, if you have any questions just drop me an email and I'll be happy to get right back to you!

I encourage you to send a introduction note to the list (simple hello really) but that is up to you.
