E-M:/ Housekeeping....State MDEQ and MDNR employees on Enviro-Mich



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from asagady@sojourn.com
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear MDEQ and MDNR Civil Servants with email from Enviro-Mich:

The State of Michigan system administrators/management information system
guys must be up to something since I am getting large numbers
of undeliverable email messages returned for many state
employees on the Enviro-Mich list.

If past private discussions offer any insite this may have 
something to do with Groupwise-related domain name 
changes causing the domain name deq.state.mi.us or dnr.state.mi.us
to no longer be recognized when the system is expecting
state.mi.us

For those civil servants who will receive this message because
they have been paying attention to these arcane matters and 
preparing for an imminent change.....    Would you please pass
the word to your less domain-aware brethren to execute a name
change to the Enviro-Mich server???   

You can do this in one step....   Here is an example...  

Send an email message to:     majordomo@great-lakes.net

Subject line is blank/ignored/put anything

Two line message body:


unsubscribe  rharding@deq.state.mi.us
subscribe rharding@state.mi.us



(be sure to use lower case letters for majordomo commands as 
shown above and  **VERY IMPORTANT**   LEAVE YOUR 
"SIG" FILE OFF..... if you don't , majordomo attempts to execute
all the lines of your sig file as commands and generally screws 
things up.....


Also, if your domain name has changed, don't forget to change
the default listing in your email software client so that your new
domain is properly identified in your outgoing email.  Otherwise
attempts to post messages to the list Enviro-Mich will be bounced
to me since the domain name of your message to post will not
match the domain name that is registered to the Enviro-Mich list
from your newly executed Enviro-Mich registration change.

Isn't it amazing how much time, energy and trouble computers
save us all [deep cynical comment]??
