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
RootsWeb has notified us that they will be performing routine maintenance
on the systems they provide in the morning(Thursday)between about 1 AM
(MDT) and 4 AM. However, another part of the notice indicates that the
estimated downtime is "1 Day". I am hoping - and I believe - that this is
incorrect and that the 1-4 AM note is the accurate estimation of downtime.
However, should you have difficulty with any of the RootsWeb sites after 4
AM MDT tomorrow morning, this will be the reason why they cannot be accessed.

to the List over the weekend periods, but I hope to do so over the coming
