IRCA

My vote goes to moving to groups.io. Please do NOT move to Yahoo Groups.
Groups.io - both the web interface and the email list - is about as easy
to use as you can get. Searching for old posts/emails is actually easy
(unlike Yahoo). I have no idea how to search the IRCA mail list for past
posts based on keywords.

I'm glad Pete got his recent post through.... I was wondering where his
Part 1 of the Caribbean report went. I thought it was something on my
end. I've had other posts in the past not make it through. Like the one
I just sent earlier today asking where Part 1 was.

Onward! :^)

Iâve managed several âMailManâ lists with over 1000 members ea.

Changing POST size is no more complicated than logging into the
web-based admin page and bumping it up to whatever.

Takes less than a minute.

Iâd like to suggest or offer managing an alternative service to this -
also offering the identical features - with realistic post sizes.

We could do this anytime in the next couple of months.

It would mean abandoning this list and its host.

I think weâve wasted enough time with this 20 Century approach to mail
conferencing.

My 2 cents.

Post size? Who the freaking hell knows!

As can be seen with my recent attempts in the past few weeks, I tried multiple different ways to get my posts through. I have to try three times now for anything to get through it seems. I also had a really long post. I split it into three different mails with a size that historically I KNEW would get through as I had sent longer ones before. Failed. Then I changed the subject line. Failed. But then an attempt would get through to the digest but not to individual mails to members. Eventually, on my second go-around with that crap, I split up my URLs so the server recognized it as normal text and not a link and left a note saying to take the spaces out of the URLs. And that succeeded. My feeling is that links to my domain have been blacklisted by the server recently. I cannot send any mails that link to my website (which include any of my files I share, DX or otherwise). This has been a rather recently development that I've never had issues with in the past. And it's getting on my nerves, predictably, as you would also seem to know now..

So I, too, would appreciate someone looking into the limitations of these archaic web mail servers from the 90s and what their limits are.

In addition, I need to type all my mails in Notepad because if I use my mail program, it changes the format from normal apostrophes to the sort of stylized ones, or a normal dash to a long dash, etc. (as MS Word would do if you're typing). All of these characters cannot be supported by the server and are changed to question marks, which we've all seen multiple times with many posters.

It's no wonder many such groups have migrated to Google or Yahoo, which also have their own downsides though.

My two cents on the matter anyway, from someone who deals with the same annoyances.

Subject: [IRCA] POST SIZE

Earlier, I wrote a two-page report about DXing during my Caribbean cruise. Because of known size limitations,, I split in to two parts and sent it to IRCA & NRC. The NRC edition came through but not the one for IRCA so I then split the report in to 3 parts and re-sent it. So far it looks like the smallest, part 2, came through but not parts 1 & 3.

This is a bit inane so I am wondering if there are any guidelines.

Chris and Pete, join the club! This is an argument that falls on deaf
ears. I and many others are regularly thwarted by these insane size
limitations. When I return from one of my DXpeditions in Masset, where I
do not have internet access, my logs are pretty long, and I think pretty
interesting. Time and time again, Iâve had them rejected due to file
size. I think the argument may be that one person is still on dial up, so
we have to be cognizant of that. I reached the point of giving up on
posting to IRCA for that reason when I have lengthy postings. Iâdlove to
hear officially from someone in charge, or perhaps going to a vote, as so
many groups have done recently! Walt Salmaniw
