=Managing Discussion Email=
You usually don't want dicussion list emails getting in your inbox and distracting you. You can do this by setting your software to send messages containing '[freecult-discuss]' in a subject line to another folder. Here's how to set various email clients to filter the messages for you.
* On the menu bar, click 'Tools', then select 'Message Filters...'
* A dialog box should appear. Click 'New...'
* Enter the options you want. A straightforward configuration is to name the filter 'Freeculture.org Discuss', and below, enter these:
* [[Image:Thunderbird config fcdiscuss.jpg]]
* Below that, under 'Perform these actions', check 'Move to folder' and select the folder you want to send it to.
==[http://www.hotmail.com Hotmail]==
* Sign in. Click options link, near the top right. Click the 'mail' tab on the left sidebar.
* Click 'Custom Filters'. Click the 'New Filter' button. Enter the options you'd like--a screenshot of a basic configuration follows:
* [[Image:Discussion list config hotmail.png]]
==Outlook and Outlook Express==
Since there are many versions out there, your best bet is to search for 'filter' in help. (Outlook calls them 'rules' and Outlook Express calls them 'views'.)
==[http://mail.yahoo.com Yahoo! Mail]==
* Sign in. Click 'Mail options', near the top right.
* Under the 'Spam' section, click 'Filters'. Click the 'Add' button. Enter the options you want. Here's the screenshot of a sample configuration:
* [[Image:Discussion list config yahoo.png]]
* More information at Yahoo.com: [http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/manage/manage-06.html What are filters, and how can I set them up?]
