Subject: [MAPICS-L] Guidelines for MAPICS-L mailing list
Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the MAPICS Mailing
Keep to the subject. The topic of the list is MAPICS (Manufacturing,
Accounting and Production Inventory Control System), the ERP software
package originally developed by IBM and now sold by Infor Global Solutions.
Any discussion related to MAPICS in particular or ERP systems in general is
acceptable. Discussion of unrelated topics will be actively discouraged.
When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message. Just quote the
parts that are needed to make the appropriate references.
Flames are absolutely prohibited. If you disagree with someone, feel free
to argue the facts, but no personal attacks will be tolerated.
The official language of the MAPICS Mailing List is English.
Do not post personal messages. Please use direct E-Mail. This list is
international in scope and personal messages just end up costing money. Job
and/or employment messages are forbidden. Please use the various jobs
oriented conferences, such as midrange-jobs@xxxxxxxxxxxx.
Advertising products, repeated postings, etc, are strictly prohibited.
Also, if you have a solution that will specifically help another
participant, feel free to tell that person. And finally, if you are a
vendor, please identify yourself as such... do not try to pass yourself off
as a user of your own products (even if you are).
PLEASE NOTE: When posting to the list, any personally identifying
information in your message will be included in the list. Email
addresses, however, are masked when being formatted for the list
archives. If you include a standard signature in all messages, consider
using the internet standard for signature separator (as defined in RFC
) of '-- ' (that's dash dash
space). The list archiving software will automatically stop including
the message when it encounters the marker.
PLEASE do not report list messages to your mail providers abuse / spam
department. This results in a black mark against midrange.com and,
depending on the mail provider's policies, can cause mail delivery
delays for everyone who uses both midrange.com with that mail provider.
midrange.com does treat abuse reports very seriously and acts upon them
immediately. When abuse reports are received, and the reporting person
can be identified, they will be removed from all lists immediately ...
and then a follow-up email will be sent.
If you wish to be unsubscribed from a list and cannot do so through the
normal mechanisms (identified at the bottom of every list message),
please contact the list owner or support@xxxxxxxxxxxx for assistance.
