I got a complaint from a reader about bounced emails that he submitted: I'm sending these instructions on how to send new posts and replies to the Digest, in case anyone has had similar problems. Please file this message for future reference.
There are two ways to post to the Telecom Digest:***** Via Email *****
Using the address telecomdigestsubmissions [atsign goes here] telecom-digest.org. Note that the "From" address shown on mail sent to email subscribers includes a part that says "remove-this" as an anti-spam measure. If you subscribe to "Individual" emails, and hit "reply" in your email client to reply to an email, you must remove the "remove-this." part of the domain name before you send your reply, or it will bounce.
If you subscribe to the "Digest" version of this publication, PLEASE try to include the "threading" information from the message(s) you are replying to, i.e., the "Message-ID", field from the actual email which was made a part of the digest, NOT the fields from the edition of the Digest that you got the message out of. (This information is included automatically if you are subscribed to "individual" messages instead of to the "Digest" version)
For example, a recent edition of the digest had this message in the top slot:
Message-ID: Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2016 09:27:49 -0400 From: Monty Solomon Subject: [telecom] Yahoo hit in worst hack ever, 500 million accounts swiped
Yahoo hit in worst hack ever, 500 million accounts swiped. ...
... and I'd REALLY appreciate it if you could include the first line when you copy & paste the message into your "create email" window. Of course, I'd appreciate having the same subject line in your email, and please add the "Re: " prefix to the start of the Subject line to make it clear that you are submitting a reply.
It's also helpful if you "tag" the quoted text > Yahoo hit in worst hack ever, 500 million accounts swiped.
(Rest of quoted message snipped)
Please note that the right-facing arrow is the standard "quoted text" marker on Usenet. It makes it much easier to read your post when other readers can skim over things they've already seen, and/or set their email clients to compress quoted text, so the ">" in the first column of EVERY quoted line is important.***** Via Usenet *****
If you read The Telecom Digest via the Usenet group comp.dcom.telecom, you need only post a new message, or hit "reply" to an existing message, and it will be automatically routed to our inbox with proper threading info included. This applies to Google and Yahoo Groups users as well.
