DARMODY/DERMODY  Mail List

The idea and purpose of the DARMODY surname Mailing list is so that researchers can discuss, share or exchange information with others.  This includes variations of the spelling of the surname (Dermody); the different places of origin;  and where, when and how they may have migrated or any other items of interest.

There are two modes available by which to receive the list messages.  Below you will find instructions for subscribing to each mode and also for changing from one mode to the other.

For your verification, a transcript of the original subscription request is included with the Welcome Letter.   Please save and file the Welcome Letter for future reference.


 





Mail mode

Subscribing with the L - by this method means that you will receive every posting made to the DARMODY or DERMODY list as a separate e-mail.
 
 
 


Digest Mode

Subscribing with the D - several postings are combined into the Digest and sent to you together as a single large message. The Digest is sent out approximately every 12 hours, or when the size of the messages reaches the threshold size set.

Changing Modes

How to change from Mail mode to Digest mode:

If you are receiving individual emails (Mail or List mode) and you wish to change to Digest mode (more than one email at a time) you again have to request the change from L to D (List to Digest)  or D to L (Digest to List).

To do this send and email to  DARMODY-L-request@rootsweb.com (or Dermody) type the word "unsubscribe" in the body of the message.
Then send another email;  type the word "subscribe" in the body of the message, to: DARMODY-D-request@rootsweb.com  (or Dermody) to continue in Digest mode.

How to change from Digest mode to Mail mode:

The directions are the same as above, only the process is reversed.
First, send an email to: DARMODY-D-request@rootsweb.com  (or Dermody) with the word “unsubscribe”  to stop the Digest mode.
Then send another email to DARMODY-L-request@rootsweb.com  (or Dermody) with the word  “subscribe” to  start receiving the Mail mode.
 

NoMail Mode:

There is no formal NoMail mode. All you have to do is follow the directions above for unsubscribing when you want the messages to stop.  When you again want to start receiving the list messages again, simply subscribe to the mode you desire.




Posting Messages:

The DARMODY and DERMODY Lists are a closed list, which means that only subscribers can receive list messages, and only subscribers can post messages to the list.
 
 

How to Post Messages:
Once you have successfully requested your mode of receiving emails (List or Digest) you will be able to post a message so everyone on the mailing list receives it, just send the message to either

DARMODY-L@rootsweb.com
DERMODY-L@rootsweb.com
It will then be sent on to everyone in both mail and digest modes. You don't need to send it explicitly to both.

If you wish to reply to a message posted, it is best, where possible, to use REPLY ALL rather than reply to sender only, that way everyone on the list gets to see your message and may be able to further assist you in your search.

If you are experiencing any difficulties with posting messages or perhaps with any other listers please contact the listowner - DARMODY-admin@rootsweb.com.
 



Full Mailboxes:

If your mailbox gets full, or if your server has problems, you will be dropped from the List automatically by the Rootsweb auto-responders after a predetermined number of "bounces."  Once the problem is cleared up, you can resubscribe.

If you have any questions regarding the mailing list, please contact the listowner.
 
 



General Guidelines

The short list of do's and don'ts:

  • "If you wouldn't want your mother reading it, don't post it".
  • All complaints go to the list owner first.
  • And of course since none of us are experts, no one should be hurt by another persons input or be too critical of any errors.

  • The more detailed Long List:
