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 am happy to announce that the first truly Irish genealogy list since
John Caughey's old Ireland mailing list has just been started by Jane
Lyons. With her expertise and her living in Ireland, this list will be
a valuable resource for anyone who has research based in Ireland. You
won't be able to find a more Irish list anywhere else. You can join at
Pat Connors, Sacramento CA, listowner
You're welcome. You can also do this with any of the columns in the address
book - and in Netscape mail to put the Subject, Sender, Date, etc., in order.

Hello! I'm using 4.76, after finding that I hated 6.0 I use Eudora Pro
5.0.something for my e-mail, and love Netscape as a browser. Occasionally,
I use Composer to work on webpages I've created using Claris HomePage 3.0,
because there seemed to be some maneuvers Composer made easier than
HomePage, though at the moment I don't remember what they are
A few versions back, I lost a whole section of my choices under "Edit,
Preferences" For example, I can't change my homepage. What I see are
sections on Mail & Newsgroups, with 10 subsections, Roam Access, with 2
subsections, Composer, with 1, and Offline, with 1.
Does anyone have an idea how I might regain control over my browsing
options? I've kept hoping that downloading a new version would help, but
Well, I'm not sure if I included my previous message in the mail I
just sent from the correct address. Just in case I didn't what I
wanted to say was that the virus you mentioned is a renamed
Trojan_Vote C virus as indicated on the Trend Micro page. The url
You will have to cut and paste the url into your location bar since it
is on two lines and, therefore, isn't clickable.
I quoted some of the following from that page:
"Subject: Fwd: Peace BeTween AmeriCa And IsLam ! Message

Live in Peace! Attachment: WTC. EXE
It creates a copy of itself in the Windows folder, and then creates
and executes the following files: DaLaL. VBS Mixdalal. vbs WAIL.
It searches for and overwrites all .HTML and .HTM files in an
infected user's system with a text string, and also modifies the
infected user's Internet Explorer startup page.

especially because of it's automatic updating sometimes a couple
of times a day where needed.

The list is AWAKE! I use Netscape 4.78 and have no problems with it most of the time. It sure beats IE. Today all is well with it.

I don't *think* so. They go into your trash folder automatically, or wherever
you designate. I *think* the ones returned to the original poster are only sent
back by a server/ISP.

Alternatively forget Composer. Just open your webpage in Wordpad
or similar and paste the counter code in at the appropriate place
before the closing </body> tag and "Save" it. I have found one way
to work out how to do things is, if online when at a page is
encountered with a feature of interest, just go to the "View"
menu and choose to look at the source code or "save" the page and
do same offline.

I have just subscribed to this list, but am somewhat confused as
immediately after I received my email telling me I was now subscribed
to the list, I received another one from Rootsweb, telling me they
didn't know what to do with my "subscribe" notice!

In the Mac, there is a file called, appropriately enough,
Bookmarks.html. This file will either be in the Netscape folder, or
especially if you have customized your version to enable multiple
users, in the System folder. The route is:
System folder --> Preferences folder --> Netscape Users --> (Your
folder) --> Bookmarks.html
I don't have a PC here in front of me to check out, but my experience
has been that with a bit of searching you will find a file with a
Since these are html files, they can be opened in any word processor
and printed out.
