Subject: [KNOX-DNA] General Mail List Usage TIPS
Date: Wed, 1 Oct 2008 12:46:18 -0400


Please be aware that when you "reply" to a post, the subject line remains
the same, so please try to keep your reply on the "same" topic.

When the subject changes in the middle of a thread, it's very disorienting
for some of us old folks who are trying to focus on one subject at a time :)
An added benefit is that well-written subject lines make "browsing" the
archives later much easier...

To "change" subjects/topics, please compose a NEW email and send it to
. This will start a "new" message thread.

We're all learning how to use the list, so if you see anything that might
make our "conversations" more useful and effective, please don't hesitate to
speak up...
