FAQ

 


What is PBGroup?

The Praying Brethren Group is an electronic mailing list. Those subscribed will receive messages that are sent to the group by other subscribers. Any subscriber in good standing can send a message to the group. Each day subscribers will receive at least one message, and usually no more than two or three in total.


Who is PBGroup for?

It’s not for everyone. It’s for those who are currently attending or have previously attended a Reunited Brethren assembly to send and receive announcements via e-mail of general interest to all in the assemblies.


What kind of messages may I send and NOT send to the PBGroup mailing list?

Yes. You can read the postings, change your own email address, and unsubscribe by going here: http://list.prayingbrethren.org/cgi-bin/lyris.pl?enter=pbmail&text_mode=&lang=english

You will need a password assigned to you to do that. Send a request for a password to the email address specified on the support page to receive one. You can change it after you log in.

I sent a message to the list but it didn’t get distributed. Why?

There are several reasons why:

  1. The email address that you are sending the email from is not subscribed to the list. If you have more than one email address, only messages sent to the email address that is subscribed to PBGroup will be distributed to the list.
  2. If your subject line has the word “email” in it, it will be rejected. This is our way of automatically filtering out email change requests that shouldn’t be directed to the entire list.

OK, I’ve subscribed and read the rules and now I’m ready to send a message to everyone on PBGroup. How do I do that?

Send your message to pbmail@list.prayingbrethren.org and everyone will receive it.


Help! I’m not getting any e-mail.
