Don't worry. Anything which breaks the rules simply gets moderated - I can
alter by hand.

It's a fact that most postings to the genealogy list do break one or other

To get me to add info to the site, you need to contact me off list so we
can discuss what data you have and what format is sensible.

There is nothing automatic about putting data on site - and I don't intend
to automate the process. Firstly, I'm not that much of a programmer.
Secondly I've seen 'automated' sites. I quickly go elsewhere....

So I'll do it properly (i.e. in a way that I'm happy with)- or not at all!

How and when did you send it?

The body of all emails is plain text and can be nothing else. Anything
else can only be sent as an attachment.

No, not problems. Attachments are banned on most mailing lists. Yes, there
is a rule that any email with any attachment is automatically referred to

Yes: I think all here like to know who is writing the email: if your name
isn't in the From: address (i.e. with your email address) a signature at
the bottom makes sense.

There is a standard set for automatic .sig file to be added by the email
program. Microsoft take no notice of that so it's pretty much dropped by
the wayside.
