NDARingers eMail List

Run by Hayden Charles email

The NDARingers email list is a simple way to share information or ask for help.  Short for a wedding?  Arranging a Branch Practice?  Running a fund-raising event?  These are the occasions when the list is useful.  Send one email message and it reaches members all over the Diocese (and beyond).

To join the NDARingers mailing list simply follow this 3 step process:

  1. Send a message from the email address you wish to use to:
    ndaringers-subscribe@yahoogroups.com  There is no need for any special subject or message.
  2. Yahoogroups will then reply with a message with the subject “Please confirm your request to join ndaringers”.   Simply use ‘reply’ then ‘send’ to this message.  Again no need to add any content.
  3. A message will be sent to a moderator to ‘approve’ your membership. This is to prevent automatic sign-ups by those wishing to send unwanted mail.

If you change your email address, you will need to follow the subscribe process again from the new address.

If you have any problems in joining or in using the list, contact Hayden directly.
