Good evening to all -This is a modified version to the email I sent out to the Members List, so it is going to sound familiar. Please note the difference in the list server email address.
We are initiating a new service to help facilitate group email communications among Maryland/DC ARMY MARS STAFF. This list service will allow you to send an email that will go to all of our fellow STAFF simultaneously, with the use of a single email address:
mdmars_staff@xxxxxxxxxxxxxUnlike the broadcast type e-mails we currently receive from AAT3TMD, this new service will allow for the rapid exchange of information amongst ourselves. This service is very fast and, during testing, was found to even support the use of attachments.
You would NOT use this service to send correspondence to a particular member, or even a small group of members. You would address that type of email just like you always have.
This is a lot like ham radio - no privacy and everyone can literally "read the mail." If you send an email to mdmars_staff@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, everyone on the list will get your email. If you express an opinion about something that you wanted kept private, it will be too late and out there for all to read. Rants and flames will not be accommodated. 'Nuff said.
For the present time, I will be the administrator and will be glad to help anyone out with questions, changes, problems or suggestions. For example, we can place you on "vacation" if you're going to be out of pocket and don't want to come back to a pile of our email traffic. For the most part, you should find the use of this list to be fairly smooth. Please bear with me while I work through the learning curve myself.
That's it for now. How's that go? If you like it, tell your friends. If you don't like it, tell me! My email is aar3ck@xxxxxxxxxxx
73, John AAR3CK / AAM3IMD
