A. Overview

Explanation: There is a separate "Test Listserver" available for practice. You can practice sending messages to this dummy practice Listserver, before you post to the real Listserver.

This Track2-Test Listserver operates essentially the same as the real Track2 Listservers -- or any Yahoo istserver allowing html & attachments. The only difference is that you and a few other "testers" are the only ones who are subscribed and getting the messages.

B. Test Listserver For Practicing (Optional)

To browse Messages, go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Track2Test

Verifying The Message

Whenever you send a test message, you should do the following 2 actions to VERIFY the Listserver "broadcast" it:
  1. Check that you received a copy of that email back from the Listserver.
    • It will be identified by the subject tag [Track2Test]
    • There may be a DELAY between when you send your message to the Listserver, and when you receive your copy back, ranging anywhere between a few minutes and up to half a day if the internet is overloaded.
  2. Verify it appears in the Listserver message archives at
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Track2Test/messages

Unsubscribng

Just send an empty email (no subject, no body) to
. . . .Track2Test-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com

Currently not used: for plain text messages: test listserver #2
