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 just received notice from RootsWeb concerning updates that will
start next week. As some of you may know, they have been advertising
updates to the Message Boards all summer. In addition, the Mailing
Lists will be moved to a new management system.
What does that mean to list subscribers? For the most part, very
little. The main points are:
1. Your current subscription(s) will automatically transfer to the
new system so there will be no need to
re-subscribe to your list(s).
2. Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the layout,
volume and issue numbers of the list digests.
3. The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. You may
have to adjust your spam filters or
put the new address on your "accept" list to prevent it from being
caught in your "junk" folder.
4. You will still be able to use the "L" address to send messages to
the mailing list OR you can drop the "L". The "official" list address will be:
5. The Message Boards will be updated first followed by the Mailing
lists. Once the Board updates are launched, the gateway will not
work until the mailing list is also updated. So I don't think we'll
get those messages sent to the list for a few days (please note, this
is my opinion and not official word from RootsWeb). At least **I
hope** it will only be for a few days.
6. Last, but not least: The new management system does not support
the same e-mail address being subscribed to *both* the regular (L)
delivery and the digest (D) at the same time. If you are currently
subscribed to both, you will continue to be subscribed to the regular
delivery when the list is moved. The only way around this is to
subscribe to the digest from a *different* mailing address.
The list is scheduled for update on August 17th, but please don't
hold me to that!! In my experience, any time a company talks about
"updates" there can be, and frequently are, unforeseen circumstances...
If you have any questions, I'll try to answer them, or find the answer.
