Dear Lis-Forum user,
We appreciate your interest in making use of the lis-forum to meet your
However, we would like to bring the following points to your attention in
order to make lis-forum reach a wider audience.
1. Since many lis-forum members use text-based e-mail clients to read their
e-mails, we request all members who wish to send messages to lis-forum for
distribution, to send them in plain text form only. Messages in html and
other non-text formats require editing by the moderator to convert these
to plain text. Since number of postings to lis-forum is increasing, we
find it very difficult to spend time on this.
Henceforth, messages, which are not in plain text format, will be returned
to the sender and will not be approved for distribution. If you are using
web-based mail clients, please configure them to format and send messages
in plain text format, when you send messages to lis-forum.
2. We also request you not to send any attachments with your message.
Sometimes we receive messages also as attachments! Since attachments may
carry viruses and since we cannot be opening each attachment to check the
contents, we request you to ensure that the body of your mail contains
your message in plain text form and that there are no attachments. You may
request interested forum members to contact you directly to receive any
Henceforth, messages with attachments will be returned to the sender and
will not be approved for distribution.
Increasingly many organizations use spam mail filter programs on their
mail servers. Many of these are configured to eliminate non-text messages
and messages with attachments. This is another good reason why you should
avoid these in your mails!
And finally, please post messages only to lis-forum at ncsi.iisc.ernet.in and
mailman at ncsi.iisc.ernet.in since this account is basically meant for
lis-forum owner for administrative purpose.
Please co-operate for the smooth and efficient running of the lis-forum!
