LET'S GET TALKING

Listserv User Guide

GETTING STARTED

  • The email for the FSTNW Listserv group is fstnw@listserv.fstnw.org. To post a message, simply send an email to it. The listserv group will automatically send the email to all members in the group. You can format your listserv message just like any other email. You can even attach a file.
  • You can reply individually to the person who posted the message, or choose “reply all” to send your response to the entire listserv.

YOU’VE OPTED-IN TO THE LISTSERV – NOW WHAT?

On your membership application, you had an opportunity to subscribe to the listserv. Once your email has been added to the listserv, you will receive a welcome message.

If you don’t receive your welcome message within five business days, check your email’s junk or spam folder. Sometimes, depending on an individual’s email settings, listserv messages are misidentified as spam. If it’s not there, please contact Chris Crosser at chris@fstnw.org or 360-734-3166.

BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR FIRST MESSAGE

As professionals, we all understand the need for etiquette and boundaries around use of the listserv. In order to promote an open dialogue, FSTNW will not actively monitor the site for inappropriate postings. We believe this service can be self-regulating by our members, but we do urge you to contact the FSTNW office if you have concerns about the use of the listserv. Before posting your first message, please read our participation policy, etiquette guidelines, and acceptable use policy.

USING THE ONLINE ARCHIVE

Past messages are stored in an online archive. You don’t need a password to search the listserv archive or to read past messages.

UPDATING YOUR LISTSERV INFORMATION

In the footer of each listserv message, there is a link you can use to change your email address, “go on vacation” which temporarily suspends listserv messages, unsubscribe from the listserv, or switch to receiving the digest version.
