Frequently Asked Questions about the TENTEC mail reflector

1998 August 27

How do I subscribe?

To subscribe you simply send a message to tentec-request@contesting.com . In the body of the message only type 'subscribe'. No subject or other text is necessary. You should receive a confirmation message back within a few minutes.

How do I unsubscribe?

To unsubscribe you simply send a message to tentec-request@contesting.com . In the body of the message only type 'unsubscribe'. No subject or other text is necessary. You should receive a confirmation message back within a few minutes.

What should I do if I change my eMail address and/or Internet Provider?

Before you discontinue your existing eMail address or Internet Provider, please unsubscribe (see above) using your existing account. Once you are logged on using your new eMail address and/or Internet provider, subscribe (see above). You will not miss a posting this way .. and .. you will save me a lot of time reviewing mail delivery error messages.
If you already discontinued your previous eMail address before unsubscribing, please send me an eMail (see below) and provide me with your new and old eMail addresses. Thank you in advance!

How do I Post a message?

To POST a message on the TenTec mail reflector, simply send your message to tentec@contesting.com. Make sure you have something in the SUBJECT of your message.

Please, DO NOT send your message to tentec-request@contesting.com which is for subscribing and unsubscribing only.

Full mailbox and other problems

When a posting can not be delivered to a user, a delivery error message is automatically sent to the Reflector Administrator.  Sometimes this occurs because a user's mailbox is full and can't accept any more incoming messages.  Other times, the user's eMail address has been discontinued.  Every reasonable effort will be made to continue the user's Ten Tec Mail Reflector subscription.   However, considering the frequency of postings and the number of subscribers, the subscription can only be continued a short time.

Sometimes a user still receives postings but will be unable to post to the Reflector because his/her eMail address was changed by their Internet provider.  You will need to contact the Ten Tec Mail Reflector Administrator (see below) to correct this problem.

Some suggestions for your posting:

DO include your name, callsign and eMail address.
DO contact TenTec by telephone if you want their repair service. TenTec does not handle repairs on this mail reflector. See their website at for additional information.
DO ensure your message pertains to a TenTec related topic. After all, that is the purpose of this mail reflector.
DON'T waste everyone's time by flaming. There are more suitable places on the web for that behavior.

How does the TenTec mail reflector work?

The mail reflector re-transmits all eMail messages received to the eMail addresses of all TenTec mail reflector members. If a message is not successfully delivered (i.e. user's mailbox full, user's Internet Server down, etc.), the message is lost.

How can I read previous TenTec mail reflector postings?

The mail reflector re-transmits all eMail messages received to the eMail addresses of all TenTec mail reflector members. The TenTec mail now archives its postings at http://lists.contesting.com/_tentec/

Note: a "_" precedes "tentec" in the above address - this address is case sensitive.

What is the TenTec Digest?

The TenTec Digest sends out each day a single message containing ALL postings made to the TenTec Mail Reflector. If you would rather have a single message each day instead of a message for each posting, subscribe to the Digest.

To subscribe to the Digest, send a message to tentec-digest-request@contesting.com
Include a single word - subscribe - in the message text.
To unsubscribe from the Digest send a message to the same address but the message text should have a single word - unsubscribe.
