Email Forum

The North Shore Heritage Network email forum is a mailing list, or listserv, that allows registered users to exchange information on heritage homes and other buildings, from advice on renovations to information on events.

To sign up, just click here and follow the instructions. There are no charges.

Alternatively, email us at info@northshoreheritage.org, let us know you want to sign up, and we will take care of it.

Once registered, to post a message or question for others to read, send your email to heritage-list@list.web.net. (You may want to save this in your address book.)

Typically, you will not receive more than one or two emails a day. The software incorporates anti-spam and privacy protection, and we will moderate the list as and when necessary.

It really is as simple as that, and that's all you need to know. But if you do want to know all the detail of how it works, everything is explained below.


About Mailing Lists

Mailing lists are a convenient way for groups to discuss particular topics or to share information. If you join a mailing list, you receive a copy of all messages sent to that list. You can read them without responding, or you can send your own messages in response. Any message sent to the list is automatically redistributed to everyone else on the list.

The North Shore Heritage list is open to any registered user who has a declared interest in the subject. Messages are not screened before they are distributed, but the contents are monitored by the administrator and anyone abusing the service will be removed.  

Your email address will not be sold, distributed or otherwise abused.

To post a message once you are registered, send your email to the list address: heritage-list@list.web.net. This where you send your messages to be read by other members of the mailing list. Do not send anything else to the list address. 

If you forget this address, you can always just reply via an earlier message.

To contact the administrator with any problems, email info@northshoreheritage.org. 

You must send all your email submissions from the email address you used to subscribe to the list. The mailing list program will only recognize and accept messages from addresses on the approved list of subscribers. Similarly when changing your administrative options, either on the web or through email, you must do so from your subscribed email address or the list software will not recognize you.

So, if you have email accounts at home and at the office, you cannot subscribe to the list from one address and then send messages to the list from the other. You are free to register two email addresses.

Subscribing to the Email Forum

Go to the list website:  

http://list.web.net/lists/listinfo/heritage-list

Follow the instructions to subscribe. You will need to enter three things:

Your email address. You will be asked to confirm this for the registration to take effect, as a security measure.

A password. You will need this later to change your subscription options or unsubscribe. Don't make it the same as any important password you already have, since it will be emailed back to you in plain text.

Unsubscribing From the Email Forum

Go to the list website:

http://list.web.net/lists/listinfo/heritage-list

Scroll down to the very bottom of the page, enter your subscribed email address beside the Edit Options button, and click the button. 

Then, follow the instructions to unsubscribe.

Updating Your Email Address

Go to the list website:

http://list.web.net/lists/listinfo/heritage-list

Scroll down to the very bottom of the page. Enter your old email address beside the Edit Options button, and click the button. Follow the instructions to unsubscribe your old email address and your corresponding password. You can request a copy of your password from the list software if you have forgotten it.

Go back to the main list information page. Subscribe with your new email address. This is the address from which you will now receive and send forum messages. Give yourself a password that you can remember and then make a record of that password. You will need this password to change your subscription options.

Set your subscription options.

Changing Your Subscription Options

Go to the list website:

http://list.web.net/lists/listinfo/heritage-list

Scroll down to the very bottom of the page, enter your subscribed email address beside the Edit Options button, and click the button. If you scroll down on the next page, you will see a series of radio-button options that will allow you to change several settings.

Forgot Your Password?

To ask the list software to email you your password, go to the website:

http://list.web.net/lists/listinfo/heritage-list

Scroll down to the very bottom of the page, enter your subscribed email address beside the Edit Options button, and click the button. Scroll down on the next page and select the button which says "Email My Password To Me".

Other Options

If you are going away for a while and don't want to return to old messages in your inbox, you can temporarily set your subscription options to "Disable mail delivery" while you are away. Once you return and would like to receive the email forum messages again simply unselect the "Disable mail delivery" option.

Who to Contact About Problems

If you have trouble subscribing or unsubscribing, or if you have any questions about the email forum, please contact the list administrator at info@northshoreheritage.org.
