I am a subscriber on the PD eGroup. How do I “turn off” the PD eGroup mailings if I will be away from my email for a period of time?

Here are the steps to “turn off” the PD eGroup mailings if you will be away for a period of time:

  • Log into the My Account page
  • Click the Edit My Profile link
  • Scroll to the eGroup Status and Information section near the bottom of the page
  • Click the Unsubscribe link in the Action column

When you are ready to rejoin the eGroup, follow the same steps but click the Subscribe link.

How do I change my PD eGroup email address?

You can only subscribe to the PD eGroup via your Account Email Address.  All emails you send to the eGroup must originate from that account.  Any emails to the eGroup that originate from any other address are automatically rejected.

You can update your Account Email Address as desired.  Bear in mind that this address is used as your log-on user name.  It is also used when we send you transaction confirmations and eBlast messages.  Changing your account email does not affect your work/home email addresses in your profile on our site or with the State Bar of Texas.

Here are the steps to change your Account Email Address, hence the email address used for eGroup participation:

  • Log into the My Account page
  • Click the Edit My Logon link
  • Edit the Account Email field as desired
  • Leave the password fields empty if you don’t want to change your password.  Otherwise, enter your new password in the those fields.
  • Click Submit

 

I subscribed to the PD eGroup using my home email address. Can I use my office email address to send a message to the PD eGroup?

No, you may only use one email address for the PD eGroup. The eGroup does not recognize names of individuals; it only recognizes email addresses.

Can you please advise me how to set the PD eGroup settings so that I receive the list once a day in a digest format?

The eGroup no longer supports a digest mode.  The digest mode allowed you to get posts bundled together once a day, instead singly when they’re sent.  However, use of this mode was very problematic because it exposed normally hidden artifacts associated with emails sent using an HTML format.  That generally made picking out the true content of the message very frustrating.  This is a common problem with eGroups and is not something within PD’s control.
