Hello Everyone,
Important!
Welcome to Freelists PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT SPAM! Anyone found reporting it
as such will be banned from all of my lists.

If you are receiving this message it is because you are currently subscribed
as a member to MY MSWINDOWSXP@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx list.

I am currently moving all of my lists away from Yahoogroups to
FreeLists.org.
The list membership has been installed at Freelists.Org as of this email.

The list at yahoogroups will be permanantly shut down on July 1.

The number one good thing about the Freelists site is THERE ARE NO ADS!

If you want off of this list you can set your settings on the below page or
email admin@xxxxxxxxxxx:

http://www.freelists.org/cgi-bin/list?list_id=2303

The login page to this list is at:

http://www.freelists.org/cgi-bin/lsg2.cgi/l=mswindowsxp

EVERYONE will need to go to the above link and put their email address in to
access the web interface.
Freelist will send you a temp code to your email and a link where you can go
to set your password.  Once your password is set you will have full access
to the web interface to set your settings. It is not necessary to set up a
password in if you do not want to access the web interface.

The Only Caveat of FreeLists versus yahoogroups is that Freelist does not
have a nomail feature.  Instead we have set all of those who were on nomail
into what Freelists calls "Vacation" mode.  Vacation mode setting is set to
never expire than and must be turned off to by the user.  This is the same
setting as No Mail with yahoogroups.

Some of you may need to change your email server rules to allow messages
from windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Those in Digest mode were migrated over into digest mode and should work
fine.

The webpage for this list on Freelists.org is at:
http://www.freelists.org/cgi-bin/list?list_id=2305

You can subscribe, unsubscribe, set vacation mode (nomail) and other
settings here


To send a message to the list it should be addressed to:


                         mswindowsxp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

We will keep both list going for a bit and see how freelists works.  If it
works to our satisfaction we will turn off the list at Yahoogroups.

The web interface at freelist is great and offers Archives also. Archives
will show up at:

http://www.freelists.org/archives/mswindowsxp/

Please let me know immediately of any problems issues or concerns.
