Hi Varun,

I got the message, so that seems to work. There are a couple of things I'd
like to know which is whether members can customize their settings - does
it allow a digests? Also, does it allow moderation? Lastly, the list should
be exclusive to specialist group members, so just anyone should not be able
to subscribe via the site.

Once we've got those answers I think we should probably put it to Vivek and
discuss how to run it. It would be too cumbersome to discuss that with the
whole group. I take it he is also working on updating the list, so we could
add everyone in when that's finalized. Hopefully we don't have to revisit
the whole question of what people's preferences are, since the poll results
are there. But we might want to ask whether people want moderation and set
up the landing page before unveiling - e.g. with info on how to subscribe,
unsubscribe etc.

Thanks for following this up. I'm happy to be admin or follow up with the
freelists admins on these questions as well if you've got your hands full.

Best,
Shermin

Hi Shermin,

This seems to be working fine. As a final test, I am replying to the list
rather than your personal email. If you get this, then we are probably good
to go in terms of 'unveiling' the list to the larger group and Vivek. How
do you suggest we go about doing that? What I mean is, do we want to first
share the list with Vivek or just do it at one go?

If all member email addresses are available, then I can even ask the
freelists admin folks to add them as opposed to each member doing what you
did to sign up.

Let me know.

Cheers,
Varun

I hadn't confirmed my subscription before I sent the previous test
