WHAT IS A "LIST-SERVER" & WHAT DOES IT DO?
Joining a list server is kind of like subscribing to the query section of a County Genealogy Newsletter, except here you don't have to wait for the mailman to bring it to your door every month or so. It is there for you every time you download your e-mail. As soon as someone sends a query to the mail-server it is automatically resent to all of the people subscribed to that list-server's address, including you! So, it is best to keep in mind that if you don't want everyone on the list to see your mail you had best sent it private! However, we recommend that if your message pertains to Miami County Ohio genealogy, please do send it through the list-server!
The way it works is something like this:
Every time you send an e-mail to the address OHMiami-L@RootsWeb.com that message goes to an unmanned computer that does nothing more than turn right around and resend that same message to everyone on the list of Miami Co subscribers.
A thing for you to take note of is that the e-mail address that you send your genealogy queries to is not exactly the same address as the one you use to subscribe and unsubscribe. That is it does not have the word request in it, i.e. OHMiami-L-request@RootsWeb.com
When you put the word request in the address it does not go out to everyone, but tells the automatic computer that you either want to join or quit the mailing-list.
