The popularity of e-mail as a means of communication has been
steadily increasing with Club members. As a result a mailing
list has been set up to facilitate this. Mailing lists are
lists of e-mail addresses stored centrally to which you can
subscribe (i.e. add your e-mail address to the list), which are
then used to send messages to all members of the list.
The list is used to distribute the Club
Newsletter and other official communications from the Club and
for general use by members. All members of the list can post to
all other members. Typical use of the list is to organize
ad-hoc meets and social meetings, selling/buying gear etc.
This list is hosted on "Yahoo", a general web
portal service which makes its money by including a small advert
with the email - so we don't pay for it. To access all the
facilities of the list, such as an on-line message archive (you
can see all posted messages on the Yahoo web site), being able
to stop messages being sent to you temporarily (e.g. if away
from Aberdeen) etc., it is best to "join" Yahoo. This doesn't
cost anything and once you have your "username" and "password"
you can log on to Yahoo and subscribe to the list and then
access all the facilities of the list.
If you do not have access to the web or do not need these
facilities, then you can subscribe/unsubscribe to/from the lists
simply by emailing the addresses below - from the mail account
you wish to use.
Members can elect to only receive the Newsletter and official
Club communications from the list. To do this, go to the list
web site (detailed
below), log on to Yahoo, click [Edit My Membership] and then
select "Special Notices Only". If you are not sure how to do
this or do not have a Yahoo account please email the
list owner to request this.
Note. You must have joined this list before you can post
messages to it.
