2. Participating in an existing mailing list

If you want to read and possibly also post to an existing mailing list, start by directing your browser to:

http://lyris.nmt.edu/read/

This will display a list of all the mailing lists hosted here. Click on the name of the list you want to join. You will be prompted for your e-mail address as a login. Use your full TCC e-mail address, such as “aloysius@nmt.edu”.

If you have not used Lyris before, you will be asked to create a password. This is not the same password as your TCC account password.

Once you have either entered your password or created a new one, click on the All Forums tab to see a table of all the mailing lists. To subscribe to a list, click on the word “subscribe” in the last column of the entry for that list.

2.1. Reading postings in a mailing list

When items are posted to the mailing list, they will be sent to you via e-mail.

However, you can also use a Web interface to look at archived postings. Direct your Web browser to:
