How to change to NO MAIL mode

There is no formal NO MAIL mode.  All you have to do is follow the directions above and send "unsubscribe" when you want the messages to stop, and then when you want them to start again, simply "subscribe" again.

Posting a message

If you'd like to post a message so everyone on the mailing list receives it, just send it to OKCRAIG-L@rootsweb.com.  It will then be sent on to everyone in both mail and digest mode.  You don't need to send it explicitly to both.

Some basics guidelines and rules:

PURPOSE OF LIST:   The purpose of the list is for us to share information
About Genealogy in Craig County, Oklahoma.  Nothing else.

***Please do not send flames.
***Please do not try to tell others what they can or can't do on the list.
***Please limit sig files to 3 lines or less.

***Please do not post virus warnings or other hoaxes. Please note, that there Is no documented case of anyone getting a virus through reading an email.  You must open an attachment to get a virus.

*** Please do not post anything you do not want public.

*******************The best guidelines come from plain Old fashioned common sense. Here are few "technical" suggestions that will help ensure a successful mail list experience:

Most of RootsWeb's mailing lists are not moderated, so your email will go to All the list subscribers. Take time to format your post - think about who your Target audiences is and state your query or reply clearly.

Post your surnames in all CAPS. This means - last names only. Capitalized Surnames are easier to identify in a long text message.

State your subject clearly. Do not be vague or your post will go unread. Good Subject lines would include: LAST NAME, first name (date of birth-date of Death) place of birth (city, county, state, country).

When replying to a thread (mail message) remove the auto generated RE: and Add a new subject line.  Most Re's subject lines are not read by mail list users. Also cut and paste only the portion of the mail needed to clarify your reply.

When replying to a digest message, remove the RE: and cut the trailing digest (The copied portion of the old mail -- in digest - the entire digest is copied into  The new mail). Cut and paste only the portion of the digest needed to clarify Your reply.

***DO NOT CROSS POST TO ANOTHER MAIL LIST.

***Do not send off topic messages to the list, do not send "SPAM" in any form. This includes mail messages that are not on topic for your list, Commercial advertising, or threatening mail (just to be annoying) and EVEN suggestions and comments on what are not topic.

*** If you have a problem unsubscribing, the culprit is usually a small Change in your email address.  The one you subbed with and the one you Are using, as your return address now must match exactly.  Even a Change in capitalization will cause the computer to not recognize it.  Check the header of a piece of list mail and compare the address the Computer used to send it to you to the return address you are using Now.  If you need help, email me.  If you have changed ISP's and the Old address is no longer valid, please tell me.  I will get bounce Messages on it.

So much for rules and guidelines.......GOOD LUCK IN YOUR SEARCH.
