Using the List: To email the ABLS List with a question or request for information, simply address your email to "firstname.lastname@example.org." This email will go out to all List Members (note this email will only be delivered to the List from the email addresses of Members who are enrolled, and anti-spam filters are used). If you choose to reply to a Member's email request, you may reply only to that Member's email address or you may reply to the List as a whole if you feel your information may be of broader interest. Please however be sensitive to not overloading List Members’ inboxes with a general reply if just emailing only the requestor directly makes sense. If you have a question for the Administrator, or wish to unsubscribe, simply send an email to "email@example.com." These are the only two email addresses you need to use for the List, and keep in your address book.
You may also email another Member directly using the information on the List Serve Members List which contains each Member's email address.
When you receive a post to the List, it will show in the "To" line the name that the Member normally uses for his/her email, e.g. "drjoesmith." The subject line of the post will always be prefixed by "[lasers]" along with the topic of the post (e.g. "[lasers] looking for advice on latest skin resurfacing techniques"). The "[lasers]" prefix in the subject line of the email will let Members know a post has been made by a fellow List Member.
So for example,
Subject: [lasers] Looking for advice on latest skin resurfacing techniques
It is strongly recommended that you word the subject line as succinctly and accurately as possible so List Members quickly know what you are looking for, and can assess whether they can be of help.
Whenever you post to the list, you will automatically receive an email back that confirms the posting was received and has been distributed to the List.
Rules and Etiquette: As a List Member, your email address will be available on the List Serve Members List to other Members, and you recognize that based on your information another Member may contact you directly. In order to make the List as viable as possible, it is important that you reply to direct emails from other Members in a timely fashion.
The List Serve is for connecting with other practitioners to request, share and exchange professional information. It may not be used for personal reasons or for soliciting business. It is also important that all communications are written in a professional, respectful and truthful manner. Misuse of the List Serve may result in a reprimand and/or removal from the list by the Administrator. The Administrator will see all of the email requests just like any other List Member; however, will not see any direct communications between individual List Members.
Privacy: The List Serve Members List (as a PDF file), is publicly viewable on the ABLS website, and List Members must recognize they might receive emails from non-List Members. These emails would not be identified as "[lasers]" … in the subject line, rather be addressed directly from an individual. The Board uses A-List Hosting as its list management service, and the List is protected by the available anti-spam filters and anti-virus software that A-List provides. While the Board believes the software employed by A-List is top notch, all List Members accept that there can be no absolute guarantee. By enrolling on the List Serve, all List Members agree to fully indemnify the ABLS from any spam, viruses, or any other "malware" that might occur, however unlikely.
Thank you for your consideration, and we hope you will join this List Serve community of medical laser practitioners.
