CHANGING YOUR ADDRESS:

If you change your email address please follow the above procedures to Subscribe your new address and Unsubscribe your old address.

ATTACHMENTS:

Most digital pictures should be re-sized before sending. If you are not sure how to do this, Picasa from Google is a useful tool, as a special size for emailing can be set. Copies can then be emailed from Picasa, without changing your original files. Click here for a page showing how to use Photoshop to re-size your images. Spreadsheets are preferred in CSV format, so that they can be dropped into any spreadsheet software. Please 'zip' any files other than JPEGs, and do not send huge files as they take up a great deal of bandwidth and annoy other subscribers. Do ensure you are not infringing any copyright. Please try to keep each attachment to a maximum size of 500K for the sake of those subscribers not on a broadband connection.

TROUBLESHOOTING:

The list is sometimes quite busy, although there are frequent quiet periods. Don't forget to check your mailbox on a regular basis, particularly if you have a limited quota email account as these can quickly become full and cause messages to be bounced back to the server. Subscribers whose mail is returned for a period of three weeks or so will be deleted!

If you require messages to be suspended for a period of time, please contact webm.gif - 2730 bytes with details of the dates involved.
