      E-mail Preferences

      The DIGEST FORMAT allows you to receive just one posting of all the listserv messages per digest cycle (typically daily) rather than individual messages as they are processed. At times, like over holidays, you may find yourself receiving one digest for several days. The subject heading will indicate the time period covered by the digest. You are not missing any messages.

              Other Listserv Tips

              If you receive a message from PULSE@HERMES.CIRC.GWU.EDUand then hit "REPLY", your response will be sent to the entire list. Be very careful when sending personal messages so that you don't risk embarrassing yourself, as many of us have done!


              ONLY WHEN YOU WISH TO SEND E-MAIL TO ALL 1000+ LISTSERV MEMBERS, SHOULD YOU SEND THE MESSAGE TO:PULSE@HERMES.CIRC.GWU.EDU


              PULSE@HERMES.CIRC.GWU.EDU should be used ONLY for messages that you wish to send to ALL PULSE subscribers.Please keep messages posted to the entire list to a minimum. Unless you feel that your message will be useful to many of the list members, please reply only to the person to whom your comments are directed.


              LISTSERV ETIQUETTE: It is important that our list continue to be a substantive source of information-sharing and respectful discussion. "Flaming," blatantly inflammatory postings, and heated angry exchanges are not appropriate for the list. Usually it is best if listserv members refrain from participating in or responding to interchanges that involve disrespectful or intentionally insulting communications. If one feels strongly that a response is necessary, one should respond only to the individual rather than to all 1000+ members of the list. Occasionally, subscribers who repeatedly initiate "flaming" may be asked to leave the list.

              To jump-start the exchange of ideas, we encourage you to provide your fellow list-members a brief description of your current work as it relates to women and your vision of how PuLSE might serve the community most effectively. As we learn more about each other's backgrounds and interests, we will be in a better position to address the specific needs of our members and share information important to us all.

              If you have questions, contact the PuLSE administrator at 202-785-5100 or iwpr@iwpr.org.
