    The IDUG website and these listserv e-mail services will be changing on July

    Please make sure you have updated your account by the end of the
    day Thursday, June 30, 2011. There will be brief outages of both the
    website and lists on Friday as things get switched over. The expectation is
    that most things will be converted throughout the day and the website back
    up before the end of the day. A few things to expect when the new
    Forums/Listserv goes live:

    * You will be able to get the messages in individual e-mails, digests, or
    using the new website based Forums.
    * All messages, including the DB2-L archives going back to 1999 have been
    brought over and will be available.
    * Messages will no longer be coming from @IDUGDB2-L.ORG ­ change your white
    list to allow @LISTS.IDUG.ORG
    * There are a few changes which are part of enhanced security and to help
    prevent spamming of members and spoofing of accounts.
    > * Security is tied with your free membership accounts, so you must be
    > registered to post and receive postings by mail.
    > * Changes to your account, must be made on the website. There are no e-mail
    > based commands.
    A positive change coming from the more secure account is that the lists can
    now allow attachment links. Listserv accounts have the default setting to
    have attachments converted to a link. So NO attachment is being sent to
    you, but you have the option to pull it from the website. The attachments
    will be scanned when posted to the website, but as with all e-mail
    that can send an attachment make sure you know the person posting before
    downloading. This provides the most flexibility to members, but if abused
    the poster will be warned, the account can be forbidden to post, or the
    membership cancelled.

    More information will be coming out over the next few days and weeks.

    Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
