You do not need to make any changes at the gmane website. Just enter
your new email address in the gmane account settings in Thunderbird.
Yes and no. :-D If I send a post using the wordworks email account
to the mailing list, it will post. If I send the identical post from
the GMANE account, with the wordworks address in the account settings,
it does *not*post.
The following is from http://gmane.org/faq.php :
* *What happens after I post to a Gmane newsgroup?*
The Gmane auto-authorizer sends you an email.
* *I didn't get any email.*
Then the address you used in your From or Reply-To headers was
invalid. Use a valid
email address. And you can't use a "public.gmane.org" address
* *But I did use a valid email address.*
Perhaps you did in your From, but your Reply-To address pointed
to the mailing list.
Don't do that.
* *I got an email from the auto-authorizer, and I answered that.
Then I didn't hear
This means that your response didn't reach Gmane. Re-send your
reply to the auth message.
Also check their posting page: http://gmane.org/post.php
*Here's how it works.*
1. The first time you post something to a newsgroup, Gmane spools
the message and sends
you an email asking you to respond.
2. You press "reply" in your favorite mail reader, and Gmane
registers this authorization.
3. Every five minutes, a Gmane cron job goes through the spool of
unsent messages, and
sends all messages that has received authorization.
4. No more than one message is sent per user per five minutes. If
you post more than one
message per five minutes, the messages are spooled and sent out
later. No action is
required from you.
5. If you authorize more than one new group per hour, the
authorizations are spooled, and
handled one per hour. This is to discourage mass authorizations
of groups by diligent
I didn't sign up the wordworks address at GMANE as of yet. Going to
wait until I know I've got the snowshed address deleted there.
I thought you said you couldn't post with the workworks address.
I forgot to tell you in a previous reply, the discussion mailing list is
the only LO list I've subscribed to directly from LO. All my posts to
the 3 other lists I follow were done using GMANE. Except for the very
earliest posts of mine in the User list. That was before I found out
There is no need to delete the snowshed address at gmane. Just put
your workworks address in Thunderbird's account settings for gmane.
Yes it will. Your unsubscribe email also has to be sent from the
address you subscribed with, which you say no longer exists. So there
is no point or need to unsubscribe.
I followed Sigrid's alternative suggestion, and sent a request.
LO unsubscribe instructions are at:
Yep, know that. :grin: I did that originally with the snowshed address
and then resubscribed using the nomail option.
