POSTING MESSAGES TO H-FRANCE.

Messages can be short questions or long documents. Please sign your name and email address to each contribution (we will add the name/address otherwise.) There are two kinds of messages (not to be confused with listserv commands) you can send: original messages, or replies to someone else's posting.

  • To send an original message, email it directly to h-france@lists.uakron.edu
  • To reply to someone else's posting, use the reply command in your mail system.
  • In either case, simply describe the subject of your post in the "subject" area and compose your message in the body of your email.
