1.  Purpose of the listservice:

The purpose of this listservice is to facilitate communication and the exchange of
information on the topic of paleolimnology.  The Paleolimnology Forum serves as the
official communications medium for the International Paleolimnology Association(IPA).
More information about the IPA is available at http://www.paleolim.org
 


 

2.  Topics permitted on the listservice:

The Paleolimnology Forum is a moderated listservice.  Postings that are not related to 
paleolimnology and advertisements from commercial businesses will not be approved 
for the listservice.  Subscribers can feel confident that they will receive only mail that 
is pertinent to paleolimnology.


 

3.  Submitting messages to the listservice:

If you would like to submit a message to the listservice, send your e-mail message to:

paleolim@lists.ufl.edu

When you submit a message to the listservice, your message will go to all subscribers.
 
 


 

4.  Replying to messages on the listservice:

When a person uses their normal e-mail 'reply' function to respond to a posting on the
listservice, their reply goes only to the original sender.
This helps to reduce the volume of e-mail messages on the listservice, and it is the
configuration that subscribers have said they prefer at this time.

If you think your reply is of interest to all subscribers, you can direct your reply instead to
paleolim@lists.ufl.edu so all subscribers will receive your message.
