What is the Parkwood Residents Association (PRA) Listserve? The PRA Listserve (e-mail group) is an e-mail forum set up for discussing community news and events. You can post a message for all other group members to read and respond to and you'll receive messages posted by others. A listserve is also known as an e-mail group. The PRA Listserve is set up in Yahoo Groups.
Who can join? The listserve is open to all residents of the Parkwood subdivision who have an e-mail address. You do not need to be a member of the Parkwood Residents Association, although we encourage you to join. Non-resident individuals will be considered on a case-by-case basis, based on their specific association with Parkwood. Commercial solicitations are prohibited.
How do I start?
|To subscribe to the listserve (e-mail group), send a blank message to: email@example.com. Do not write anything in the subject or body of the message. You will receive a confirmation link from Yahoo guiding you through the subscription process. Be sure to send the email from the address where you want the listserve emails to go, and provide your name and address when requested in the "comment to owner" section.|
During the signup process you encounter the following screen:
We recommend you select "Join the Group" (the Yahoo group). Then you will be automatically set up to access the message history, message search, user files, and other features of Yahoo Groups. (If you don't do this now, you can do this later at www.groups.yahoo.com.)
Once subscribed, you can post a message to the group by sending the message to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by replying to another message.
Subscription to and participation in the listserve are free. You can cancel at any time, by sending an email to email@example.com
I provided my email address when I filled out the survey and paid my dues. Do I need to do anything else to join the email group? You need to subscribe - see above. That's separate from membership in the Parkwood Residents Association.
Will I get a lot of e-mail messages from the group? The activity on the group is moderate, as listserves go, currently averaging 13 messages per day (as of 2013).
If you prefer, you can switch to a daily-digest subscription by sending a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by adjusting subscription settings through the Yahoo web interface at groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/parkwoodresidents/info. (You have to subscribe first, before you do this.) The daily-digest format will deliver one message per day (or once every 25 messages) containing a digest of all the emails that were sent that day.
What do I do if I have a question or problem? If you have a question or problem subscribing, unsubscribing or receiving messages you can send a message to the PRA Listserve Administrator Chris Dewey at: email@example.com or
