I started the creation of a hlcc_tx mailing list to play with. Until I get some
experience with it I don't want to involve all the hlcc-tx YahooGroups members,
but would like to include a small few of members to help "play" with it. I hope
that you'd be one of the small group, and Jimmy Dalla too if he wishes to.
Below is the first response to me from freelists that provides more info and
links than I was able to find before I applied to try the list.
BTW this will be the first submission to hlcc_tx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, and I should be
the only recipient to this submission. If you want you can signup for it.
Thanks for the help re FreeLists.

Welcome to the FreeLists community!
Your FreeLists mailing list is ready for use. Please read this document
carefully and keep it for future reference.
All functions of your list can be controlled through the web by logging in
at http://www.freelists.org/login.html To take full advantage of all
FreeLists features, please login and take a look around. Many special
features that may appeal to your subscribers are not turned on by default.
Please send a test message to your list to make sure things are functioning
Some important starter info:
- To post on your mailing list, simply send email to
- Subscribers can join your list by sending email to
hlcc_tx-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'subscribe' in the Subject field OR by
visiting your list page at http://www.freelists.org/list/hlcc_tx. If
you have a large list (i.e., thousands of users), feel free to email
staff@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with your subscriber list -- we can add your
subscribers manually (see below).
- Do not unsubscribe from your own
list -- doing so will render you unable to make configuration changes and
perform other administrative tasks.
- Full documentation of the online administration system is available at
http://www.freelists.org/help/. We encourage you to get the most out of the
web interfaces, and we encourage subscribers to do the same. Please let
your list members know about the advantages of exploring the FreeLists Web
Login. As an administrator, you can configure site preferences through the
FreeLists Portal Administrator, and list preferences through the
administrative portion of the FreeLists Web Login. See
http://www.freelists.org/login.html for more information.
- View your list's information at http://www.freelists.org/list/hlcc_tx and
your list's webpage (once you set it up) at
- Online, searchable archives of your list are available at
http://www.freelists.org/archive/hlcc_tx Each list's archive is
automatically updated as new messages come in.
- There's a FAQ at http://www.freelists.org/wiki/the_faq that you might
want to let your subscribers in on.
- There are some general guidlines to configuring your list at
http://www.freelists.org/help/recommended-config.html Any other questions
should be routed to freelists-users, described below.
- Got a large subscriber list? Due to burdensome legislative changes, we
no longer allow list admins to add subscribers directly but we understand the
need to add them in bulk if you're migrating from another service provider. In
this case, if you feel you have sufficient evidence to prove permission (the
kind, unfortunately, that would stand up in court), our staff is here
- We understand that you'll probably want to send some test messages to your
new list to try out the features before putting the list into production.
These messages will appear in the archives, so we've provided a feature that
allows you to remove specific messages at will. Just log in to the Portal
Administrator and go to "Archive Settings."
If you have any questions or comments, at any point, please feel free to
contact us by visiting http://www.freelists.org/contact.html or by emailing
