Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q1: Why didn't my message get posted to the [whichever] list?

A1: The most common reason is because you sent the message from an account which is not subscribed to the list. If you get a message that your attachment is too big, try reducing the size of it (see next question) or write the webmaster for a possible exemption. The software will block posts where the list is bcc'ed (blind carbon copied) or there are too many recipients (spam filters). Simply resend the message to the list as a regular recipient.

Q2: Is it possible to send photos (etc.) to a mailing list?

A2:  Yes, but if you have more than one or two pictures, it is best to load them into the race team gallery or your own. If you'd like to send a picture (or any file) to a mailing list, you must make sure that the total file size is less than 200 KB. It's really not that hard, just follow this easy guide to learn how.

Q3: How can I review old messages for a list?

A3: All messages for each list are archived. Click on the appropriate list link and then the "archives" link on the next web page. You will be prompted for your password. If you don't remember your password, the system will send it to you. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page and type your email address into the box next to the "Unsubscribe or edit options" button; on the next page, click the "Remind" button. Your password will be sent to your email account.)

Q4: How can I find out who is subscribed to a particular mailing list?

A4: If you are subscribed to an email list, it's easy to see who else is on the list. Click on the team link and then the "Visit Subscriber List" link on the next page. If you don't remember your password, follow the directions in the previous answer. Subscriber lists are only available to list members.

Q5: I get too many messages from DBC email lists!

A5: Set your account to receive messages in the "digest" mode. In digest mode, messages are accumulated and sent as one long message with a table of contents at the top. You can scan the subject lines and decide what is worth reading. See A3 above on how to access your account to change subscription options.
