Welcome to the SIDS mailing list!

The Discussion Area for SIDS Related Issues

bullet If you have not yet joined this mailing list list server, join now!

bullet If you have joined, then you can send messages and manage your subscription.

The SIDS mailing list is a place to discuss issues related to SIDS. It is similar, yet better, than the older electronic bulletin boards you may have heard about. Why is it better? Because when you join the mailing list, the "conversations" which happen are delivered to you via email, rather than you having to go get them. When you place a message on the mailing list, that message is delivered to everyone else who belongs to the mailing list.

To participate in the SIDS mailing list, you have to use two different email addresses. One accepts and delivers our messages. The other email address is used to manage the mailing list.

The email address that accepts and delivers our messages is sids@eartha.mills.edu. This is the e-mail address you must use to send a message so others can get it.

In order to belong to the mailing list, to search its archives, and to interact in other ways, you must use the email address of the computer program that manages this mailing list: listproc@eartha.mills.edu. One of the common mistakes made with these mailing lists is sending a message to the wrong address. If you try to post a message for others to see to listproc@eartha.mills.edu, others will not receive that message. If you try to manage the mailing list by sending a command to sids@eartha.mills.edu, it will not work.

There are two steps to follow in order to participate in the SIDS mailing list:

1) First, you need to subscribe to it. The list doesn't accept postings except from subscribers.

You can use this handy gateway to subscribe, but if you use the gateway, Be Very Careful That The Email You Enter On The Form Is Correct; that is, that the address is the way it would appear on a message others would receive from you.

Otherwise, you can send email directly to listproc@eartha.mill s.edu. Before You Send Mail To The Listprocessor, Be Very Sure That Your Own Valid Email Address Has Been Entered Into Your Web Browser's Return Address Field. On the first line of the body of your message type:

subscribe sids

followed by a space and then your first and last name. On the second line type:

information sids

Send the message. You did it! You joined our mailing list!

Whichever method you used (the form or direct email), you will receive email confirming your subscription and giving you lots of information about the list and how to use it.

If you get really stuck, send email to balzer@ella.mills.edu.

We hope this mailing list benefits many people.

The SIDS mailing list is maintained at Mills College, Oakland, California, USA. Thanks to several people for setting this mailing list up:

bullet Ned Balzer, SIDS parent (his son Willie died at the age of four months on March 10, 1993)
bullet Dave Madole at Mills who is the "sysadmin" for the computer this mailing list is on.
