E-mail List Usage Notes
An EHHOA member E-mail list exists to allow
anyone subscribed to the list to easily communicate
with everyone else also subscribed to the
list. This communication method is often
referred to as a 'listserv'. Anyone in the
list can send an E-mail to all of the list
members simply by using the link or by sending an E-mail to the list
name. Remember that many of your neighbors
will received your E-mail. Please keep your
note text appropriate. The characters '[EHHOA]' will be prefixed to the subject of all
notes sent to the member E-mail list. Subscription
to our 'email listserv' is for HOA and members
use only; it's unrealted to the any email
that you provided to APMS.

usage notes below before proceeding.
- Subscribing to the list
Only EHHOA members may subscribe to the E-mail
list. You can subscribe as many ids as you
like for your family. Please limit these
to members at least 18 years of age. Please
go to our contact us page and send a short email the our Webmaster
requesting to join the Email Listserv. You
must provide your property address as part of
the request as the list moderator must verify
that you actually live in Emerald Hills before
approval. Please be patient.
- Removing your id
Please go to our contact us page and send an email to our Webmaster

To send an E-mail to the list, just select
the ' ' link to compose your note. Everyone in
the list will get your note. If the 'Send'

your note 'To:' (not 'Cc:') 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. The E-mail
will appear to come from your E-mail id allowing
those getting it to reply directly back to
you. This will then allow all members of
the list to communicate jointly through a
single E-mail id. Be sure to use suitable Subject for your note.
