Important: This mailing list will move to Google Groups next week
Greetings mailing list subscriber,
On Monday 21 May, we will complete our transition from our previous
LISTSERV mailing list software to Google Groups. We have designed the
process to appear seamless to you, but just in case you are interested
or come across any problems, this message should help to answer any
questions you may have.
Q. Will I still continue to receive messages to the OpenMRS Developers List?
A. Yes. All e-mail addresses subscribed to the list will be moved to
the corresponding Google Group. If you have any rules or filters in
your e-mail client, you may want to make sure they reference the
correct list address, [hidden email].
Q. What is the e-mail address for the OpenMRS Developers List?
A. The official e-mail address continues to be [hidden email]. No
other addresses will work. Please remove any other addresses you may
have used in the past, including [hidden email].
Q. Do I need a Google Account in order to use the mailing list?
A. No. You can continue to interact with the mailing list via your
e-mail client. However, if you are subscribed from an e-mail address
currently associated with a Google Account, you will be able to fully
interact with the mailing list at
https://groups.google.com/a/openmrs.org/forum/#!forum/dev to send and
Q. How can I unsubscribe?
A. Once the transition is complete, you can send a mail to
[hidden email] from your subscribed e-mail address to be
removed from the list. If you are subscribed from an address
associated with a Google Account, you can also change your
subscription options (and unsubscribe) by visiting
https://groups.google.com/a/openmrs.org/forum/#!forum/dev and clicking
the "My membership" button near the top center of the page.
Q. Can I subscribe from more than one e-mail address?
A. Yes. When the transition is complete, you will be able to subscribe
from additional e-mail addresses using the form at
http://go.openmrs.org/lists - after logging in to the OpenMRS Wiki,
just enter the new address and click "Subscribe". This summer, we will
integrate mailing list subscriptions with your OpenMRS ID and you will
be able to manage all your subscriptions in one place.
Q. Will past messages to the mailing list be available?
A. Yes. We have been archiving messages in Google Groups since October
2010. Older mailing list archives will also be available at
http://go.openmrs.org/lists once the transition is complete.
Q. Something didn't work right. Help!
A. We're sorry for any inconvenience. Please go to
http://go.openmrs.org/helpdesk and describe what's wrong, and we'll
get it resolved ASAP.
