Czernowitz group - Technical updates

<x-flowed>Dear Czernowitz Groupies:

1. Due to several requests from members, Carl Ulrich
<> and I decided to change the list default so
that replies to an email from the Czernowitz-L group will
automatically go directly to the sender rather than the entire group.
This change is effective immediately. Check your To: line carefully
to be sure your message is going to the right address.

2. If you receive your messages in the form of a single daily
digest, your reply will still go to the list.

3. If you wish to receive messages in the form of a daily digest,
send the following command to

set Czernowitz-L mail digest-nomime

If you need further assistance, either Carl or I can do this for you.
The Cornell guidelines on how to use their mailing list services are
on the web:

4. For many reasons, it is preferred to have messages sent to the
group in "Plain Text" mode. Sending messages in html or other
formats takes up excess space in the computer system and all of the
coding used in these formats clutters your message when viewed in
digest form.

5. Suggestions from multiple list members - include your name,
location, and email address in the text of your message. (This is
similar to JewishGen posting rules.)

6. Finally, I was disappointed to learn that Cornell University
Information Technology services can not provide us with an archive
for list messages. I have most of the messages sent saved to a
separate mailbox. a) Do we want an archive service? b) Will anyone
feel it is an invasion of privacy? c) Does anyone in the group have
the technical ability to create a searchable archive on the web? and
d) Should our archive be searchable only by group members, perhaps,
or open to the public as are the JewishGen group archives?

Best wishes,

Bruce Reisch
