Welcome to the Pregnancy & Infant Loss mailing list!

The Discussion Area for Pregnancy & Infant Loss Related Issues

bullet If you have not yet joined this mailing list List Server, join now!
bullet If you have joined, then Post a message to the list. Remember, You Must Be A Subscriber For This To Work!

The Pregnancy & Infant Loss mailing list is a place to discuss issues related to pregnancy & infant loss. For those of you interested in SIDS related discussions, the SIDS mailing list is available.

The Pregnancy & Infant Loss mailing list 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 Pregnancy & Infant Loss 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 infanlos-owner@taex001.tamu.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: majordomo@taex001.tamu.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 majordomo@taex001.tamu.edu, others will not receive that message. If you try to manage the mailing list by sending a command to infanlos@taex001.tamu.edu, it will not work.

There are two steps to follow in order to participate in the Pregnancy & Infant Loss mailing list:

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

You can send email directly to majordomo@taex001.tamu.edu. Before You Send Mail To The List Processor, 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 infanlos

On the second line type:

info infanlos

On the third line type:

end

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

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 janetes@gte.net

We hope this mailing list benefits many people.

The Pregnancy & Infant Loss mailing list is sponsored by Texas Agriculture Extension Service at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA. Thanks to a special person for setting this mailing list up:

bullet Jan Estes, SIDS Grandparent (her grandson, Devin Taylor Estes, was born July 3, 1995, and died September 11, 1995)
bullet Paul Sittler, Network Administrator for Texas Agriculture Extension Service at Texas A & M University (TAMU), who donated the disk space at TAMU, the mail router, and phone calls of encouragement and technical expertise.
