NORTH EAST TELLY NET
How it works
There's one central email address for the mailing list. Anyone who's signed up for the list, can write to that address, and the message is automatically sent out to everyone else who's signed up. The address is:
Emails sent out from the list have a distinctive subject header so they're easy to spot - or, if you know your way around your email filters, to divert into an email folder of their own.
Important: clicking 'reply' to a message received via the list sends the reply out to EVERYONE on the mailing list - not just the person who sent you the original message. This is great for keeping conversation threads going - but also can lead to disaster if you email private remarks, which were only intended for the original writer, to the entire network. It's easily done - so be careful!
The network is hosted at the moment as a free 'Yahoo Group'. These 'Groups' offer a lot more than just a mailing list; each group is given a central web site of its own, which includes archives of all group emails, lists of all members, a place for sharing links, files and images, a calendar which also sends automatic reminders of events, and various other features. When you log in to this site, you can also control how your individual emails are delivered. The group's address is:
To access these features - and to make sure non-members of the network can't get at them - you need to register for a 'Yahoo ID'. You'll then have a username and password to get into the site. It's all free and just takes a couple of minutes - and you can do this via the site address above.
Email controls: via the website, you can control how you receive emails. For example, if you are getting more emails than you want, you can limit your emails only to 'special notices' from organisers of forthcoming events; or you can opt to have all the messages each day bundled up into one daily 'digest' message. You can also suspend your messages completely for as long as you want, without leaving the group.
