We've created an email list for PATACS members and our OPCUG partners and friends, to discuss topics of mutual interest, ask and answer questions, share resources, convey news,
and increase our sense of shared community.
The list, on Web site groups.io, is available to all members. The more subscribers the list has, the more valuable it will be to participants. So everyone is encouraged to subscribe and participate.
Using the list is as simple as reading/answering/sending email. You
can use whatever tools for list email that you currently use.
Only subscribers receive what's sent to the list and can answer or not,
as they prefer. List material is not visible to non-subscribers. The list itself is secure and invisible to
non-members. Only subscribers can post to it and it will not receive spam email.
Subscriber addresses will not be visible or disclosed. Please - subscribe with your name. (If you post to the list, of course, subscribers will see your email address -- the same
as if you'd directly sent them a note.)
Members of PATACS and OPCUG WILL NOT be automatically subscribed to this list -- you must do
To answer a message, simply reply. NOTE that replies will go to the list,
will be seen by all subscribers. To reply privately you MUST change the
TO address in your note.
Also NOTE that the list is not an official PATACS "publication"; it
simply allows members to communicate with each other. It doesn't replace
the newsletter or other official PATACS communications.
The list's website provides additional functions such as message
archiving and file storage. As subscribers increase and list usage
grows, we'll provide additional information.
