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
Hello subscribers to the LAKEMAN surname mailing list.
All Rootsweb mailing lists have been nearly dead for the last two or so
years. In February this year, Rootsweb upgraded the software that runs
their 30,000 or so mailing lists, and after a few teething problems, the
system is now up and running. The archives of past posts are gradually
being restored, but this may take months.
Subscribers may notice minor differences. The main difference for you is
that you can register as a subscriber and then be able to adjust options
for how you receive emails (e.g. single posts or digests in plain or
MIME format, halt mail while on holidays and a few more things). Or you
can just leave things as they are.
As a reminder, this mailing list is for the discussion and sharing of
information regarding the LAKEMAN surname and variations in any place
and at any time.
