Email List Server


Those of you with email might want to consider joining MVFD's email list server group. This group allows you to communicate with MVFDers without having to remember everyone's email address. You only have to remember one email address - mvfolkdancers@yahoogroups.com

Once you are subscribed, you may send messages to mvfolkdancers@yahoogroups.com and those messages will be sent to everyone else subscribed to the group.

But, to take advantage of this, you must first subscribe to the group.

Other Considerations:

Concerned about spam? Our experience with this site is that they protect your email address very well. Members of the list must be approved by the list moderator, so that unwanted spammers should not be able to join. So be assured that spam will not be an issue. If spam does occur, the offending party will be swiftly and harshly dealt with.

Blocking of messages from Yahoo sometimes occurs by your internet or email provider. We have no control over this.
WPAFB blocks all email traffic from Yahoo. Please do not try to subscribe with a WPAFB email address, as you will never receive messages.
Your company or school may block email traffic from Yahoo.

If you are concerned that you are not receiving messages from the email list,
1. Please check your spam filter to make sure that you are allowing these messages through
2. Once you've verified that your spam filter is set to allow messages through, ask Leslie to check if messages to you are bouncing back. She will check the admin records for any issues reported with your email address. Please note that there is typically ONE message per week on the list.

See you on line!
