Common Questions

Why am I getting multiple (duplicate) copies of messages?
If you are getting duplicate messages, one of several things might be occurring.
1) you have two addresses subscribed to the list and both are directed to the same email box
2) someone else's email has been routed to your email box (did someone leave your facility and their email got routed to you to handle?) - Talk with your local email admin

Why am I not getting any messages from the list?
PROBLEM: Your address got unsubscribed form the list.
POSSIBLE CAUSE: If you local email system bounced too many of the meditech-l messages with a short time frame (for any reason), The Mailman might auto unsubscribe your email address.
FIX: Resubscribe

PROBLEM: Your email address is subscribed, but no messages are arriving in your email box.

Excessive Bounces.. What does this mean?

If your account gets disabled during this time, just go to your account and re-enable it.
