Our Electronic Mailing Lists.

One of the services our U3A offers members is the right to join up to eight separate electronic mailing lists.
Most members, when they complete their membership form, opt to be able to send and receive messages about U3ANR's activities through E-board. (electronic notice board).

Members can use E-board to exchange general U3A information, make announcements such as times of U3ANR meetings, ask or give help to other members with anything, swap/share/give away anything and sell one-off items.

Policy says e-board is not to be used for any unlawful matter, to discuss topics that other members could find offensive (i.e. politics, sexist jokes), or to advertise a range of products or services for personal gain.

Messages to E-board will be rejected

  • if they exceed a maximum of 25 kilobytes(KB) [approx 450 words]
  • you are not a member of that list
  • If they contain "CC" "BCC" or "Reply To" may be held until reviewed by the moderator
  • May be delayed for up to a week, if they contain suspicious material, that the Mailman program holds for the moderator to check.
  • Contain a suspicious web address

    Solution: you should check to make sure that nothing in your email might trigger a spam filter
    Some emails may be delayed by your provider if you have a Yahoo or Hotmail address
    Attachments of any kind (photographs, Word documents) are not permitted

If members have any problems, before emailing the web administrator they should

  • check your Spam folder
  • detail the exact nature of the problem
  • and any/or all the steps they have taken to resolve the matter

    Apart from general e-board, members can join any or all seven other specialist lists.
    These allow members to send/receive messages from others in these groups:
  • Friday forum
  • genealogy
  • investments
  • photography
  • science technology
  • tuesday-with-u3a

To send a message to all members of specialist list X, send it to: X@lismoreu3a.org.au
Follow the same style to send a message to all subscribed U3ANR members via the general e-board, i.e. e-board@lismoreu3a.org.au

If you would like to join or leave a list send your request to the Membership Secretary, [jan@islandchangers.com] who will then advise the Web Administrator
Please include your Membership number, email address and Name

You may find it convenient to add the address of e-board and any other U3A message group to your contacts list.

For further information contact our current Web Administrator, [stuart@islandchangers.com]

NOTE: Our webpage (as opposed to e-board) is currently undergoing a significant rearrangement and restructure, so it is worthwhile to keep an eye on it, to note any changes that may affect you.
