What are mail lists?
These discussion groups, or forums, are offered as a PCCT membership benefit and allow subscribers to post to all list members a "To whom it may concern"-kind of message, or when you don't know whom to ask for help.
They are not intended to replace person-to-person e-mail communications.
A mail list is a distribution list you don't have to maintain or update. The
subscribers themselves will do so. You decide how you receive posted emails. You
choose one of four Message Delivery attributes: Individual Email; Daily Digest;
No Email; or Special Notices.
The groups have been set up by the owner so that only PCCT members can read these messages by simply pointing their browser to one of the following URLs
If you want to be able to participate in group discussions, i.e. send replies or originate questions and messages yourself, you must
- be a registered user of Yahoo! Groups (free), and
- join one or more groups - that means
not only, exclusively, PCCT groups, but others as well!
If you want further explanations go to http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/groups/
If you have registered with
Yahoo! Groups and are accepted by the group moderator as a new subscriber to a particular list, then you may post to that
list and reply to queries from other subscribers. If you want to address a
subject to an individual subscriber, you login to the group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pcct/members
and click on a subscriber's email. This is a person-to-person communication and
not particularly encouraged (see first paragraph) in a group, but may be
necessary in some cases (when the reply does not interest the entire group).

A monthly automated reminder message makes suggestions on how to let subscribers
participate in files and photos that you want to share.
Join the PCCT list to exchange ideas or seek advice regarding computer hardware and software hints, pointers, or questions. This list encourages communications among the members of the PCCT.
Join the PCCTFORUM list for non-computer related subjects. With the diverse demographics of such a group, it is preferable that the Subject: line contain some pointer to viewer discretion, so we don't offend people on the list!
