Please review our Listserv
Etiquette and Tips before using the Listserv.
There are three ways to receive Listserv messages:
- Individual e-mails (received into your e-mail inbox)
- Daily digest form (sent daily or a couple times
a day to your email inbox), depending on Listserv
- View online, at your convenience, from the Yahoo
.. if you have registered with Yahoo.
This method can also be chosen when you go on vacation,
without having to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to

your e-mail address.
Important: The address from which you send
the message must match your subscribed address. For
example, if you change you e-mail domain/provider, you cannot
change the subscription that went to your old e-mail address by
sending a message containing your new address from your old e-mail domain/provider.
What to Do When Your E-mail Address Changes
In order to read Listserv messages using your new address,
- Unsubscribe your old address by sending a message
that contains your full name and member number FROM your old e-mail address TO

that contains your full name and member number FROM your new e-mail address TO email@example.com
If you lose the ability to send e-mail from the old
address before you're able to unsubscribe, contact the
Listserv Moderator. If you send e-mail to the Listserv Moderator, please include your full name and TCS member number.
How to Register to View Messages on the Yahoo site
Viewing online at the Yahoo site is available only
if you register at Yahoo Groups. To register, first
acquire a login ID at Yahoogroups.com. For secure identification of users, Yahoo Groups
requires that a cookie be stored on the user's computer,
so your browser security options must be set to allow
for cookies. Only the cookies for logging in and logging
out need be accepted to authenticate the user.
IMPORTANT: See our Privacy Disclaimer, which follows.
If you attempt to use the Web version of our Listserv, Yahoo will intercept this Web access and ask you to "register." Part of the "registration" process includes their request for demographic information which has nothing to do with Listserv utilization; information such as gender and employment status. We recommend that if you sign up, do not give Yahoo your actual age, employment, or other demographic information unless you feel completely comfortable releasing such private information.
