Hi

Do people have filtering and threading set up? Without it busy lists are _very_
hard to cope with.

The first thing people need is to make sure that email from this list is
filtered into a separate folder from other email (this should be done
for all email lists), there is some background information on this here:
 
  http://www.groupsense.co.nz/filtering.html
 
And specific instructions for various clients here:

  http://www.groupsense.co.nz/howtofilter.html

And some specifically for Outlook here:

  http://kb.indiana.edu/data/afaj.html?cust=1200

Once the list is filtered into a separate folder it becomes easy to just
check the message on the list when you have time.

The second very important thing to set up is threading -- this ensures
that discussion around a specific topic is kept together and makes it
easy for people to ignore discussions if they don't have time for them.

There is more threading information here:

  http://www.groupsense.co.nz/threading.html

And instructions for setting it up in various clients here:

  http://www.groupsense.co.nz/howtothread.html

Hope this helps.

Chris
