[Chrysler300] Suggestions - 300 List Emails- Set up a folder, or view archived emails at your leisure

I also enjoy the listserver. Not everything pertains to me, so I occasionally delete messages that have nothing to do with either my 300-D or 300-Ks.

Here is one suggestion: I eliminate the manual "sifting" process by directing all 300 Club emails to a single folder I have entitled "Chrysler 300", so they all end up in the same place, and not in my general Inbox. You'll need to see how to do this yourself through your own email service, each is different.

Suggestion #2:  I would say to whoever does not like to sift through the many emails not relevant to their interests, they may go over to the Forwardlook list - here's a link to our emails, in chronological order with the "subject" line clearly listed, and you may pick only the emails you care to view: http://www.forwardlook.net/300-archive/.  This has been a feature of the Forwardlook list for many years. This way, you may unsubscribe to this service, and view any emails of your choosing at your leisure.

A bulletin board such as the Forwardlook site has, http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/category-view.asp, is also very useful. It , however, requires a good deal of mainentance, which involves cost and time.  Though the list is free to subcribe to, and free to use, I will send the owner $20 every year or two, and what he receives in total rarely covers his costs. it is worth far more to me than "free."

Personally, I LOVE the list server.  I've received very valuable advice, and really enjoy reading all of the comments.  I've also found some critical parts I needed, and made helpful contacts with other members.  So, I consider the list server a very valuable asset associated with being a club member.

However, the one thing that has always disappointed me is the lack of images.  To me, it would be so helpful and interesting to actually see everyone's car, project, thing they had a question about, etc.  I belong to two other Yahoo Groups, and both allow it.  Same with a multitude of forums I've visited.  Collectively on those groups we all enjoy visual exchange of information.

If images could be included as attachments, if security or speed of downloading is a concern, one could always choose to simply not open the attachment.  For that matter, it takes perhaps a half second to read a subject line and delete the entire email if it is not of interest.  That's a simple solution to avoid overloading inboxes.

I see the fundamental purpose of the list server as communication, and as much as I appreciate even having the list server, an ability to conveniently engage in visual communication would make it just that much better, in my opinion.

Speaking as a retired systems analyst, I agree with Bob's reluctance. Bob should continue with his reluctance, and change nothing regarding images. 
Secondarily, I have enough stuff coming into my system daily without images adding to the bulk. Text take very little disk space, memory and download time. Let's leave things as they are.

Hi Don,

You guys are spinning your wheels. Bob or you need to go to the Yahoo Groups and change the preferences to allow jpgs. 

I have had this discussion with Bob before and he is reluctant to allow photos for security reasons.
