The HOPOS electronic mail discussion list, HOPOSemail@example.com
is hosted by Google groups at Virginia Tech.
Previously, until August 2015, this list was managed as a
listserv at the address, HOPOS-L@vt.edu. The
HOPOS-L address is no longer active, but all
subscribers as of July 12, 2015, have been transferred to
the new address and should have the same privileges as on
the previous platform. Basic user functions (posting
and receiving messages, and unsubscribing) can be
accomplished without using any online apparatus specific to
To post a message to the list, send an
email from your subscription address to HOPOSfirstname.lastname@example.org.
Messages sent from the list should appear
in your normal email inbox automatically. Please
note that replying to messages from the list will send
your response to the entire group by default. To
respond only to the author of the message, please forward
your message to their address instead.
To unsubscribe from the mailing list, send
a message from the account you wish to use to HOPOSemail@example.com.
Managing your account settings (such as
digest format and other options), or viewing the
online list archive, can be done through Google
groups. This will require that you have an
active Google groups account, which can be created either
using your normal email address or by activating a new Gmail
account. Please note that if your subscription
address is managed by Google at another organization than
Virginia Tech, that organization may have established
restrictions on your ability to view external
groups. If this is the case for you, you may need to
create a new Google groups account in order to change
settings or view archival information. We are happy
to help if you experience any problems (see below).
Questions about HOPOS-g policies can be directed to the
list owner, David Stump (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Technical inquiries about the performance of HOPOS-g or
its user functions can be sent to the on-site manager, Tom
