A List allows you to send a single Email question to a single Email address (The List's Email Address) and your message is instantly distributed to all trial lawyers on the List in just seconds. If you reply to a message received from a List, all members will see your response instantly.
Posting messages and receiving messages from a List is limited to members of the List. However, any message you send to the List is broadcast to hundreds or thousands of lawyers on that List. Keep in mind that email messages could be forwarded to inappropriate parties.
You can change your delivery settings to "No Mail or use the "Vacation Mail" option to stop or suspend all Email. This allows you to continue to post messages and search the valuable archives when needed, but you won't receive messages in your mailbox. Later, you can reactivate mail delivery to "Normal," and you'll start receiving messages again. Note: If you unsubscribe from a list, you will not be able to search archives, nor post messages - you will need to re-apply to the list server to join again: Change your Settings.
All messages posted to your List Servers are fully searchable, including messages posted previously to you joining the list server. This valuable archive can be searched at TrialSmith.com or at your participating trial lawyer association Web site: Search List Servers.
Contact the Administrator of the List Server in order to join. Your local trial lawyer association or litigation group can get you started. You must typically complete a user agreement and obey established rules. Some Lists require a membership fee. After you join a list, you must Certify Your Email Address to be able to search list server archives, browse messages and change your settings online.
Each List has a single email address (The List Address) -- any message you send to the List, including attachments, will be sent to all members of the List instantly. You may also Post a Message Online.
