A while back I discovered someone sent some of our emails to me which they found on the internet. I think I just figured out how or why. When I originally got the below email I did not realize what it was. When Paul from Mass stopped doing WIA work he converted our list serve which was through Mass. to freelists.org. Some of you might have figured this out a while ago but this internet challenged attorney just did. As you see below this org. does not guarantee confidentiality. I just called Bob Simoneau to see if NASWA can get us a listserve through NASWA (but he is out until 6/4/07) If he cannot do that and/or until he returns from vacation and our conference I will have my secretary make a list of all WIA attorneys that I know of with their email and send it to everyone. I would recommend that if you want to communicate with the group you use that and NOT this freelist email we have been using. JP -----Original Message----- From: FreeLists Mailing List Manager [mailto:ecartis@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, February 24, 2005 4:32 PM To: jpomerantz@xxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Welcome to list 'wiaattorneys' >> File sent due to actions of administrator paul.o'neill@xxxxxxxxxxx Welcome to the NASWA listserve for state government attorneys working on Workforce Investment Act issues. To facilitate communication about WIA legal and technology issues among attorneys working on WIA, we will be using list-serv technology. You are now a member of the WIA ATTORNEYS mailing list. NOTE #1: To begin sending messages to the list, do NOT reply to this welcoming message. Use the list address: wiaattorneys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx NOTE #2: This list is maintained for the convenience of attorneys from the 50 states working on Workforce Investment Act issues. List activity may be monitored for appropriateness and content in order to ensure compliance with freelists' policies. Further, freelists does not warrant, either explicitly or implicitly, the confidentiality of any messages posted to this list. Confidential material should not be transmitted through this list. List operation -------------- A mailing list is implemented as an email address. By sending email to the address: wiaattorneys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx your message will be automatically forwarded to all members of the list. When you receive a message from the list, if you want to send a reply to just the original sender of the email, you can just hit your REPLY key and your response will go only to the individual that originally sent out the message. If you want your comments/response to be received by everyone on the listserve, you need to hit your REPLY TO ALL key or address a new email to wiaattorneys@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Using either of these methods your comments will reach everyone currently on the list serve. For your convenience, the list name will be automatically added to the Subject: of every message you receive. This will help people who belong to multiple lists to identify the messages at a glance in their incoming mailboxes. You can also sort these messages easily or use your inbox assistant to automatically redirect them to a specific folder you create when they arrive in your inbox. List administration ------------------- This WIA mailing list is "closed"; which means that only the list operator may add new members. It also means that only list members may post messages to the list. In other words if you are out of the office and using an email address that is not the one that is on our list, your email will be rejected. The list serve address(wiaattorneys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx)only works for members approved by the list administrator. Note that if your email address changes in the future, this change will require administrative action to add the new address as a "new" list member. The operator for the WIA Attorneys mailing list is Paul.O'Neill@xxxxxxxxxxx (Paul O'Neill) and all subscription requests or removal requests should be addressed to that email address. You may also contact him as follows: Paul T.
