The NHLNet Mailing List

Mailing lists provide an easy way for a group of people with common interests to communicate simply about various topics via email. They are restricted to a fixed list of "subscribers". Only these people can take part in the discussions.

NHLNet is aimed at members of the NHL and other people interested in what is going on mainly in the UK and Europe. It is not a substitute for the main harmonica mailing list HARP-L, see below, and will probably have a lot less traffic. To take part you have to subscribe. No money is involved. This is means that you have applied to join and been accepted. When you want to leave you simply unsubscribe. If you want to restrict the number of emails you receive you can switch to a Digest option where you receive one email a day which contains all the individual emails circulated during that day.

The list will allow any harmonica related topics of interest to the NHL to be discussed. It could be used to announce or organise local and national events which were missed or not yet published by the magazine, important NHL news, or to ask for help in finding resources etc. I will also announce any major updates to the web site.

No abusive emails will be tolerated. A full FAQ will be written to give more information about how to use the list, which will cover etiquette and general information
