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
As was announced last week, Rootsweb went down for a major server upgrade.
It looks like in the early stages that they have lost a lot of information.
We have lost our Prepends...example: COLAKE.... and looks like we have lost
If this is the case, this is going to be a major nightmare for me with all
the lists that I manage. Be patient, don't complain to the list, complain
to me privately before I run away.;-) One good thing is some of my lists
are small but some of them are well over 300 members so be patient until we
can see what Rootsweb has as far as a final word on what has happened. I
will keep you posted.
Starting at 8 a.m. PST Friday, February 23, RootsWeb will begin a planned
temporary downtime for maintenance of its servers and hosting process. It
will limit this downtime as much as possible, and will return with increased
performance and reliability for future growth.
