Informix Mailing List has moved

Post by KENDRICKS.CHE.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

This is a combination test message and announcement to let you know
that the Informix Mailing List "informix-list" has successfully moved
to  I hope. :-)

At the risk of being bludgeoningly redundant, I'll reiterate that:

  o The list is now being maintained by the Majordomo list management
    software.  Instructions for using Majordomo are included below.

  o To contact the new list managers, Paul Watson, Billy Wheeler and

If you notice any serious problems, please contact the new list managers
or me.




Using Majordomo

All informix-list administrative requests will be handled on
by the list management software package Majordomo, whose address is

To subscribe to the list, send e-mail to that address with the message

    subscribe informix-list

If you want to subscribe an address different from the one from which you
send your request, place the address to be added to the list as a third
parameter on the "subscribe" line above.  Do *not* include your real name
after your address as you would with a LISTSERV list.

To remove your address from the list, send the message:

    unsubscribe informix-list

the one from which you send your request, place the address to be removed
from the list as a third parameter on the "unsubscribe" line.

Placing your subscribe or unsubscribe request in the Subject line will not
cause any action, since Majordomo ignores the Subject line on all messages.
If your mailer automatically appends a signature block to your outgoing
e-mail, add a second line consisting of the word "end" to your message.

For more details, send a message consisting of the word "help" to the

1. Informix Mailing List (informix-list) moving

There are some changes in store for the Informix Mailing List that will
be occurring over the next few weeks.  I am posting this announcement
to informix-list and comp.databases.informix since both forums will be

The most significant change is that informix-list will be moving from
the system to, the home site of the International

This move will be automatic.  Current list members will not have to do
anything to move their addresses.  Once the move is made, you'll have
to post to the different address of course, but I'll let you know when
that happens.

A second change related to the move is that informix-list will be placed
under control of the Majordomo mailing list management software package.
This means that people who want to subscribe/unsubscribe to/from the list

corresponding with yours truly.  I'll post more details about this later.

The list will continue to be gatewayed with comp.databases.informix.
However, news service will be provided as a free sponsorship to IIUG by
the generous folks at, instead of by the generous folks at
the Math/CS Department of Emory University who have been doing it since
the list's inception in 1991.

There will be other changes that you may notice.  Messages will no longer
be tagged with Informix-List-ID's, and message headers will no longer
contain "X-Informix-List-ID" lines.  Gatewayed messages will have
"X-List-Gateway:" header lines listing their source, either "informix-list"
or "comp.databases.informix".

If you are now making use of the "X-Informix-List-ID" header lines to
route or filter your e-mail, you should be able to make similar use of

be part of each message coming from the list.

Mike Reetz and I will be working to phase in these changes over the next
couple of weeks.  The first step will be to complete the testing of the
mail-to-news gateway, which will begin Monday, July 7.  We'll keep you
posted on our progress.

That's about it for now.  Let me know if you have any questions.
