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:
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...

You use this address when you:
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:
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.
