    I've added all Board members to the accept list. I've changed the permissions on the list to start accepting subscriptions. I've put a bounce limit of 4 in list form and 3 in digest form the list so I won't have to see so many bounce messages - which means that if a person has email problems they'll bounce off quickly. They can sub at their own leisure by sending a message to:

    List mode: BOARD-L-request@rootsweb.com - with the word subscribe in the body OR Digest: BOARD-D-request@rootsweb.com - with the word subscribe in the body.
