Bearmail - Guidelines and Rules

Follow the trail with Black Bear Cycling's BearMail system. Communicate with all list members by emailing to a single address. Available for club members only. Contact jeffstik@blackbearcycling.com

BearMail Guidlines
  1. To send: put this in your email To: address window (or members just click on the link)
    Official Bearmail will have the subject prefixed with
    BEARnews:: when received. You do not need to add it.
  2. The Black Bear Cycling e-Mail system is for the exchange of cycling-related information that is of general interest to club members. Share your rides.
  3. Use the "reply all" button with extreme caution. When replying to BearMail, it is usually not necessary to share your reply with the entire club. You can reply to the sender only by using the "reply" button.
  4. There is a size limit for BearMail messages and attachments. Photographs, spreadsheets, graphics and documents more than one or two pages long will usually exceed this limit. Please send links to photos and articles. If you need to send something that is over the limit, it can be done by contacting Bob/list admin. (Limit: 256K)
  5. Trouble Shooting: My BearMail is not working. Occasionally your ISP / email provider will block mass mailings.

    How do I fix it: There are few steps involved. You needed to remove the senders address as well as the BearMail from the blocked list (Black list). You need to then add bearmail@blackbearcycing.com to the friends/allow list (White list). You may need to add some of the blocked senders to the friends list also. Most email programs use logic for analysis. The address is checked against the lists so that the known alloweds are released. Then they are checked against the blocked list. The messages can be directed where to be placed in some filtering system. Smaller ISP/e-mail providers may not have the same system as Comcast, Yahoo, AOL et al.

  6. Recipient Limit: The "MailMan" program will not accept your message to distribute if there are additional recipients on the To:, Cc: or Bcc: line. To send to those not on the BearMail mailing list, please send a sepatate e-mail.
