[SEAOC] Important Message from Admin

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Recently I was asked by several subscribers why sometimes we get 
"Subscribe" and "Unsubscribe" message distributed to the list subscribers.

We had a major problem about 3 weeks ago. To prevent such problems, our 
service provider "Power.Net" wrote a custom mailing list software. This 
custom package is significantly fast. There are over thousand engineers on 
our list. This is larger than what most of the list software can handle and 
exposes the list to more problems.

We are still debugging this custom software. We are working on trapping all 
email that has the word "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" in the body of the 
message. We have been successful to some extent. I would say 90% of such 
messages are intelligently redirected by the software. However, there are 
still leaks. Some of them escape our screening process and get distributed 
to all subscribers.

I apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused you. I expect in next 
3 to 4 weeks, we will have this problem taken care off.

Thank you for making this list a success.
