Mailing Lists

Children with Diabetes has several e-mail lists that help provide support and news to people living with diabetes. You can sign up for any or all of these lists by following the links shown below. Anyone may sign up for these lists. When you sign up, you will receive an e-mail to which you must reply before you will be subscribed to the list. This prevents others from signing you up. Also, you must be a member of a list to post messages to it.

Mailing lists can have two modes: immediate mode and digest mode. In immediate mode, you receive each message immediately as it is posted to the list. For lists with a small volume of messages, immediate mode works well. In digest mode, the list manager collects messages posted to the list and sends them out as a collection, or digest, once or twice per day. For lists with a large volume of messages, digest mode can be the better choice. However, digest messages can often be difficult to read because of HTML messages sent to the list.

If you are using an e-mail forwarding service, please subscribe under your real e-mail address, not your forwarding address. In the event of a problem, we would receive error messages from your real e-mail provider, not your forwarder, and it would be difficult for us to resolve the problem.

If you choose to participate in our mailing lists, please be sure that your computer has up-to-date anti-virus software running and that it checks your e-mail for viruses. E-mail viruses can spread through a mailing list with great speed, and it is the duty of everyone on the list to practice safe computing.

How to Unsubscribe to a Mailing list

  1. Unsubscribing via the Web

    1. Visit the web link shown above for the mailing list.
    2. Type in your e-mail address.
    3. Click on "Unsubscribe."
    4. Click the Submit button.
    5. You will receive an e-mail back from the list asking that you verify the unsubscription. This is a security measure to prevent people from unsubscribing you. Simply reply to the message and send it back to the list.request address.
    6. You will then be removed.

  2. Unsubscribing via E-mail

    1. Send an e-mail in plain text, not HTML, to list with the word "unsubscribe" in the message body -- not the subject, the body. For example, to unsubscribe from the parents@childrenwithdiabetes.com mailing list, send the unsubscribe message to parents.request@childrenwithdiabetes.com.
    2. For unidirectional lists (e.g., you only receive, like the What's New list), you will be removed immediately.
    3. For bidirectional lists (e.g., you can post and receive, like the Parents list), you will receive an e-mail back from the list asking that you verify the unsubscription. This is a security measure to prevent people from unsubscribing you without your permission. Simply reply to the message and you will be removed immediately.
    4. If you send this message as HTML, the mailing list manager might not understand the message.

Please do not send unsubscribe messages to the list, since this means that everyone on the mailing list gets your message. If you are unable to subscribe after following these instructions, e-mail with the name of the list and your email address and you will be removed immediately. You will receive a message from the mail server confirming the fact that you have been removed.

Terms of Service

  1. Mailing lists are unmoderated.
  2. All requests to join a mailing list are confirmed via an e-mail message sent to the requester's e-mail address. This prevents people from subscribing others and is refered to as "double opt in."
  3. Posting to all mailing lists is restricted to subscribers only.
  4. The mailing lists themselves are not available for use by anyone other than the members of the list.
  5. Your e-mail addresses will never be sold, shared, or given to anyone under any circumstances whatsover.
  6. Sending of commercial messages ("spam") of any kind is prohibited and will result in immediate removal from the mailing list without notice. Spammers can expect their ISP to be notified and their email address added permanently to our anti-spam filters.
  7. Sending of harrasing or abusive messages is prohibited and will result in immediate removal from the mailing list without notice.
  8. Sending of chain letters is prohibited.
  9. Sending of messages promoting products purported to offer "miracle cures" or other dubious claims regarding any product are grounds for removal from the list without notice.
  10. DO NOT forward any kind of virus warning or amazing story. These are almost always hoaxes.
  11. List members are strongly encouraged to send only plain text messages to the list. HTML messages with fancy backgrounds are not always readable by everyone and make the digest messages unnecessarily long.
