Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I saw a blog post that is very encouraging:
So if all goes well, Rootsweb will have new hardware and will be given resources to fix the problem. So keep watching our database search page. Thank you for your patience.
Peace be with you,
