Pet-Law: The Email List
On the Pet-Law email list, you'll meet some of the finest people and brightest minds on the internet. Reading the list posts is an excellent education in pet legislation and many other related topics. But it is very high-traffic. Please read this before subscribing!
How many posts per day will I receive from the list?
- With a membership in the neighborhood of 2,000, Pet-Law is an extremely busy list, often producing over 100 posts a day. Even during calmer periods, it runs 40-75 posts per day.
How do people deal with that much mail?
- To stop your e-mail entirely and just read the list on the website, send a blank e-mail to
. Then to read the list, go to the Pet-Law Yahoo website and click on Messages. You will not receive anything in your inbox from the list and can read and participate when you have time.
- The best overall solution we have found is to set up message filters (also called rules or folders) inside the email program. When the message comes into your email box, it is routed to a separate Pet-Law folder. That way it isn't mixed up with the note from Aunt Sophie, the urgent virus warning that annoying friend of yours sends every day, or the letter from your boss confirming your raise. Look in the HELP file of your email program for words like FOLDERS, RULES, or FILTERS and set it up to direct any mail that has
in the TO line to a Pet-Law folder.
- Some people set up a separate email account just for Pet-Law mail. Go to the Free Email Account Directory for a comprehensive list and reviews of free accounts.
- If you must, you can unsubscribe by sending a blank e-mail to
. Yahoo may take from 12 hours to several days to unsub you. We cannot do anything to speed up the process, so you'll just have to be patient. If you sent an unsubscribe notice to the proper address (not to the list and not to the listowners), your unsub will go through. We suggest setting your membership to NO MAIL rather than unsubbing. Then you can still read and participate when you have time, but will not receive email from the list.
