EMail Lists

From PCSAR

Jump to: navigation, search

PCSAR maintains many electronic mailing lists to make communication work smoothly.

Viruses are automatically blocked. Spam (unsolicited commercial e-mail) is not blocked.

The address of each mailing list is of the form xxxxxx@castrov.cuug.ab.ca. The xxxxxx is listed below. (I don't list the full address each time so as to minimize the spam).

[edit] pcsar

pcsar@castrov.cuug.ab.ca is the official published contact for PCSAR. Mail to that address is automatically forwarded to pcsar-board. E-mail is not sent from this address. You can send e-mail from your personal e-mail address, but ask your correspondent to keep this as the permanent contact.

[edit] pcsar-announce

The address for announcements of PCSAR activities. Announcements of activities hosted by external organizations (non-PCSAR activities) should go to pcsar-members instead.

Messages sent to this address are automatically forwarded to both pcsar-members and pcsar-external.

  • pcsar-external is just external contacts that are interested in our announcements.
  • pcsar-members is just our members.
  • pcsar-announce is both.

If you don't have permission to post to pcsar-external, you may get a bounce from that list while at the same time the message goes through on pcsar-members.

[edit] pcsar-board

goes to all board members, plus

[edit] pcsar-caller

goes to members of the PCSAR call-out committee.

[edit] pcsar-external

key people outside our organization that have asked to be kept informed of our events.

People such as

  • contacts in LASARA, SEASAR, Foothills SAR, ACRO
  • Waterton Parks
  • CNP RCMP
  • several others that want to know about our events

You can add yourself to this list at http://castrov.dyndns.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pcsar-external

Don't assume that any particular individual is still on the list. If you want to invite a person or group to one of our events, contact them explicitly. If you really want to see who is on the list go to http://castrov.dyndns.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/pcsar-external/members and enter the list password. But honestly, you don't need to care. People put themselves on the list because they want to receive our announcements. They take themselves off the list when they no longer want them. If we want to get our announcements out to a specific group, we should be sending it explicitly to them.
