MMABSERS - Moderation Management's Listserv for Abstinance Support
For Free Email services that work well with our Listserv, we can suggest Google's Gmail Email service (and the "Regular" format) as an excellent FREE email solution for ours and any other Listserv system.
Fill out the Form, and answer the Confirmation Email- DONE!
No password required!
(All changes on this form require a reply confirmation message from your Email account.)
The most popular options for receiving Listserv messages is whether you wish to receive these Email messages in a steady stream when they are sent ("Regular" format) or if you want them batched into a single, larger, message that only arrives once or a few times per day. ("Digest" format.)
Complete Method- Creating an account with our provider, ICORS.ORG, can be helpful. There are additional features only available to ICORS subscribers.
Once this account is created, you can then use their interface to subscribe to MMABSERS or MMLIST, our Listserv services with Icors.org.
We have a User's Guide for this complete process, in Web Page HTML Format - listserv.html And in Acrobat PDF Format: listserv.pdf
(Note that creating a ICORS.ORG account will also enable you to make your own changes to your subscription settings.)
We also have a Guide to RETURNING to ICORS.ORG after you have created this login-
(This was identified as a problem by some users.)

The MM Forum
The MM Forum offers a greater level of privacy than the Listserv. Although posts can be viewed in real time, they also can be viewed as historical strings of important topics.
The Forum Community has built a special place, both for Public visitors (there is moderated content available for visitors without a login) and for the dedicated MM participant.
Our Chat Room
Chat is our most intimate service. Our professional-quality RumbleTalk service makes for a quality Chat experience. Chats are scheduled, but the Chat Room is also available for drop-in chats anytime.
MMLIST “Main List” Listserv
To call a Listserv system a "Email distribution list" does not completely do it justice. A listserv is a unique and powerful communication system, which distributes messages via email to it's subscribers. But it is much more than that. It is a community, a healing place, a world of your creation.
"When you join MM's national internet mailing list MMLIST, it is not unlike attending a live MM meeting. Some people describe it as a group meeting in "slow motion". This is a great alternative for people who do not have MM groups in their local communities, or who prefer on-line groups."
It is a place where you can share your experiences, successes, and challenges while addressing drinking concerns. This list tends to include social interaction as well as Moderation talk. When you first sign on, you may find that some of the posts have little to do with drinking. Give it some time. Discussion always returns to what brought us here.

We trust you will find our online services to be special places where you can meet new friends and discuss personal topics. It is our feeling that when you begin to deal with problem drinking, you also start to deal with other life issues common among our members.
NOTE: The Listserv has some difficulty sending messages to certain Email services.
If offered with your Email service, please consider whitelisting our main address:
Some Email services, however, insist on blocking our Listserv service or record incoming messages as possible "SPAM"
simply because these messages are coming from a single Internet address that is sending a large number of Email messages.
If you are having unusual problems receiving Listserv Messages, contact us at email@example.com
and we will work with you and your Email service to try to resolve the issue.
We are pleased to now offer an RSS Subscription Link for MMABSERS. This can be an ideal way to read our Listserv WITHOUT receiving a large amount of email messages.
Note that a subscription (see the form above) is still Required! Only Subscribed users can access our RSS feed. It is available for use by any RSS client, such as Mozilla's Firefox. (Note that Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 has difficulty fully supporting this RSS feed.)
Also this RSS feed will require a separate ICORS.ORG login. If you don't already have an ICORS.ORG login, clicking on the RSS feed link below will put you on a login page where you can create this login. (A confirmation email message must be answered to complete this login process.)
(Information about creating an ICORS.ORG login is available in a User's Guide.)
If you decide to ONLY read our Listserv via either RSS or the Archives, you may set your subscription to be NO MAIL. These subscriptions can still post messages from a subscribed Email address, and read RSS and Archive messages, but will not receive any Listserv messages to the subscribed Email address.
