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.

Officially from rootsweb:
The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. This means the
"from" address your mailing list emails come from will be slightly
different- ListName(a)rootsweb.com vs. the current
ListName-L(a)rootsweb.com. 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. <snip>
AOL users have reported some problems with receiving mail in a timely
matter and you can find additional information about this by
subscribing to the support group AOLers-RootsWeb Mailing List or
simply reading through the list archives.
You will be able to send mail with or without the "-L"
ALSO: subscribers who subscribe in both the list and digest modes
using the same email address will no longer be able to do so. You may
still subscribe to both but you will need to use two email address.
You can always use a free Internet account such as hotmail, yahoo or
gmail. I have a few gmail invites left for anyone who would like one.

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
