How to post a message to the group:
-----------------------------------

You can read, reply to, or post new messages through our Web site if
your Web browser is configured properly to send e-mail.  Just click on
the appropriate mailto: hypertext links containing the newsgroup
mailing address which is listed below.  Your message will be sent to
the moderator for review prior to being distributed.

If you use news, simply post a message into
bionet.plants.signaltransduc.  Be sure to set your "Distribution:" to
"world" (omit the quotes) or else the message might not leave your
site!!

To post by e-mail, mail your message to one of the following addresses
depending upon your location:

Posting Address                      Location
---------------                      --------
plsignal at daresbury.ac.uk             Europe, Africa, and Central Asia
plsignal at net.bio.net                 Americas and the Pacific Rim

Your message will forwarded to the moderator for review and may or may
not be posted depending upon whether or not your message conforms to
the newsgroup purpose and moderation policy.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND SUBSCRIPTION REQUESTS TO THE POSTING ADDRESSES!
Please use the e-mail server addresses as indicated above.


How to reply to a message on the group:
---------------------------------------

If you are replying to a message on our WWW site, simply click on the
newsgroup mailing address which should appear as a hyperlink on the
To: header line of the message that you are reading if you want to
send a public reply.  If you want to reply privately, click on the
sender's e-mail address which is a hyperlink on the From: line of the
message.  Your Web browser may allow you to "quote" the original
message, i.e., include the text that you are replying to in your
response.  Please edit out unneeded text to minimize consumption of
hardware and network resources.  Your message will be sent to
the moderator for review prior to being distributed.

If you are using a newsreader, simply use the reply or follow-up
command on your newsreader (generally "r" or "f" but these vary from
program to program) to send either private or public replies.

If you are using e-mail, replies to messages that you receive will
*NOT* be automatically returned to the group.  This is the standard
for Internet mailing lists as opposed to BITNET LISTSERVs which often
send all replies back to everyone.  You must be certain that your
reply contains either of the two newsgroup posting addresses above in
your message header if you want to share it with everyone on the
group.  Otherwise in most cases your reply may go back to only the
original poster of the message to which you are replying.  Private
messages addressed to the original poster of the message are not
reviewed by the moderator but postings to the newsgroup address will
be.

ALWAYS be certain that you examine the address on your messages before
you send them!!!  Since this is a moderated group, you may be able to
cancel a message sent by mistake if you contact the moderator promptly
before he/she posts the message.  On unmoderated newsgroups, there
would be no way to stop a mistaken message.

Some non-Internet compliant mail systems may attempt to send replies
to our error-trapping address called BIOSCI-REQUEST.  If yours does
this, please be sure to readdress your message to plsignal at net.bio.net or
plsignal at daresbury.ac.uk if you want to send it to the newsgroup.
