General Information

The Series1 (ser1) mailiing list, as most others, is operated by an automated mail program Majordomo. The Major responds to commands in email sent to him directly. The Major also screens email messages to the series1mailing list and occasionally bounces mail. Mail sent to mailboxes that are full or no longer valid generate replies to the administrator indicating a mail delivery problem. These addresses are then manually taken off of the mailing list. Messages sent from an address other than those on the mailing list will bounce. Addresses that fail to follow the Appropriate Use Policy are also removed from the mailing list. Remember this webpage address! If your email address stops receiving mail or your messages do not appear to be reaching the series1 mailing list, review the above causes. If necessary, subscribe again. The Major does not keep duplicate addresses, so if you are already subscribed you will receive a confirmation message to that effect. If you are not subscribed, or a first time subscriber, you will receive a request to verify your address and then a welcome message. First time subscribers are encouraged to send an introductory message, so be prepared to tell us a little bit about yourself. It is of interest to series1 mailing members to know your location on the planet, what your interest and expertise is, and what type of Land Rover you have or lust after.

Thank you for your interest and participation in the series1 mailing list.

Appropriate Use Policy

We generally do not have these types of problems, but just in case anyone wonders why this mailing list operates smoothly, here are basic principles to observe.

  • Send no advertisements, commercial messages or spam. Instead, list individual vehicles, parts for sale, or wanted Land Rover items on the Land Rover Exchange.
  • Sign your messages with your real name, your location, and Land Rover year and model. This will help in discussion and build your internet personality. Many persons put this information in a signature block limited to 3 lines.
  • Keep messages focused on the subject of Series1 Land Rovers.
  • Keep your messages short. Trim "reply to" messages to essential text. Turn off html encoding in your mail program. Messages over 9 kb will bounce! 9 kb is about 4-1/2 pages of regular text.
  • Reply to the author of a message directly whenever possible, instead of the series1 mailing list. Especially for personal communication or replies of no interest to the rest of the mailing list.
  • Avoid sending "me too" messages that add no new information and content to the discussion.
  • Send no personal attacks or engage in slamming. Everyone has an opinion, many are not based in fact.
  • Independently verify tips and suggestions before acting on any advice. Everyone is entitled to be wrong. You are the final arbiter and responsible for your own actions. Free opinions are often worth only what you paid for them.
  • Keep language clean and messages civil. This is a family oriented mailing list.
  • Do not send autoreply messages, or away from my mail, delivery confirmation, failed mail, non-delivery of, rcpt, receipt confirmation, returned mail, unable to deliver mail, or undeliverable message.
  • Do not send photos or files to the series1 mailing list. Post these to a web page, to the The Garage, or one of the many free photo hosting services such as Yahoo. Afterwards send the web page address URL to the list with your comments. You are also welcome to submit photos and comments to the section, or articles and contributions to the permanent collection - see submittal information below.
  • Contact the mailing list administrator for help with the mailing list instead of annoying mailing list subscribers.
  • Above all, have fun!

As of February 2008, the Major has retired and is living at his country home where his family affectionately refer to him as Dada. When not tweaking his Series 1 Land Rover, he managed to port all mailing list functions to a web based interface. While there are still a few quirks in the discussion list set up, and on-going "features" to be implemented, you are invited to visit the subscription page at SER1
