NARA currently uses Groups.io for bulk email communication.
- To sign up go to https://groups.io/g/NA1RA and click on the "Join This Group" button part way down the page.
- Another method is to send an email from the address you want to sign up with to: NA1RAfirstname.lastname@example.org
- You may have to wait before your subscription is approved before you start getting messages.
- You then send your messages to NA1RA@groups.io in order to reach all the other subscribers.
We are experimenting with using Google Groups for Business to serve the same purpose.
- Google Groups is a versatile tool, and has many configuration settings, it can serve as an email reflector, but also users can "...create collaborative inboxes, web forums, and Q&A forums."
- These other applications however, require users setting up NA1RA.org accounts or at least linking existing Gmail accounts, as well as more user involvement.
- If you would like to join the testing of this new reflector to evaluate it, send an email to Reflectoremail@example.com
- If you are unable to confirm your subscription request (which would then still need to be confirmed by a moderator) because of a lack of an account, please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org to get one set up for you.
