This is a mailing list server for the convenience and enjoyment of anyone interested in CS Yachts. It allows you to communicate with others who share that interest. You can send an e-mail message to the server, which will automatically forward it to all other list subscribers. As a subscriber, you can reply to messages, and the reply will go to all subscribers. You need not be a member of CSOA to join this list. However, it is absolutely not to be used for commercial messages or any purpose other than that stated above. Anyone abusing the privilege of joining the list will be removed from it at the sole discretion of the list moderator.

Please note the following information about use of this e-mail list:

  1. The list is unmoderated. Anyone can join it, subject to the restrictions noted at the top of this page. Applications to subscribe are reviewed by the list owner. Nearly all are approved - only those that are judged to be for uses in violation of the list rules are denied. If your application is denied in error, please contact the list owner and describe your interest in the list. Approval should then be quickly granted.

  2. The list is set up to operate in 'non-digest' mode. This means that messages will be sent immediately upon receipt, rather than grouped. This makes the list more timely, but creates more traffic to users' mailboxes. Any user can change to digest mode, and receive one message daily grouping all the messages sent that day. You also can choose the option to be a subscriber to the list but not have messages mailed to you at all. To read the messages, you log onto the yahooGroups web site.

    These options are selected from the yahooGroups web site., either when you subscribe or at any later time.

  3. Only subscribed users to the list can post to the list. Messages addressed to the list from non-list-members will bounce back to the sender.

  4. Replies will be sent to the entire list. This is so that the list may be used for discussions which all list members can monitor.

  5. All subscribers to the list will have their privacy protected. It is not possible for anyone but the list moderator to learn who has subscribed.
