2. I have not been receiving e-mail messages from AAJ. What can I do to fix this? One unfortunate side effect of Spam-protection filters is that they may block some AAJ member communications and benefits. We are taking steps to make sure our important member messages are not mislabeled as Spam. In addition to our efforts, we ask you to help keep the communication channel between you and AAJ open by taking steps to ensure that AAJ e-mail messages are delivered to your Inbox.

To do so, please forward the following list of AAJ e-mail domains to your IT department or e-mail service and ask that they be added to your e-mail "safelist" or "whitelist" (the list of e-mails addresses you have indicated are valid and not Spam).

3. How do I join AAJ list servers?For security reasons, the only way to subscribe to AAJ's list servers is to use the Web interface. There are two options: (a) join one list or (b) join multiple lists in a single operation.

(a) All available list servers are listed under List Servers. The List Servers are password protected; this means that, if you do not already have a username and password, you will first need to register.

(b) If you wish to join multiple lists, join some and drop others, or change your settings (mail, digest, index, nomail) in all of your lists, we suggest that you use this second option. Online registration for the list servers now includes a page that lists all forums you are qualified to join. Simply check the box next to the list(s) you are interested in. Boxes next to list servers you have already joined will already be checked. You can unsubscribe from lists you have subscribed to in the past by simply unchecking them. You may also change all of your list options by selecting or deselecting the "mail," "digest," "index," or "nomail" options on this page. If you enter a new e-mail address when you register, your old e-mail address will be updated throughout our Web site, including being replaced on all lists. If you've registered for before, you may either reuse your current username and password or change them.
