Miscellaneous Questions

(Click on a question to see the answer.)

How do I send e-mail to a list?
Only subscribers (list members) may send email to a list.
In general, you do this by addressing your email to:listname@community.lifechurchboston.orgWhere “listname” is replaced by the name of the list you want to use (i.e. “Congregation”, “Inspiration”, etc.)
How can I find out who else is on the list?
To see list members (only subscribers can do this) go to the list page shown above for the desired list.
What do I do if my e-mail address changes?
If your e-mail address changes, list email will continue to go to the address that you originally subscribed. You must subscribe your new email address to the list by using the appropriate subscription form (see “How do I subscribe to an e-mail list??” above).
Can I use more than one e-mail address?
Any email address that you intend to use for sending email to a list must be subscribed to that list. You may, for example, have both a personal e-mail address and a work e-mail address. If only your personal address is subscribed to a list and you try to send list email from your work address it will be rejected. There is no restriction on how many email addresses you can subscribe. You will have to subscribe each address individually (see “How do I subscribe to an e-mail list??”above).
Will list e-mail go to all of my addresses?
Initially, each email address that you subscribe will receive email from the list. You can change this if you like. You may, for example, have both a personal e-mail address and a work email address subscribed to a list. If you want to receive list e-mail on your personal e-mail address but not on your work email address you can easily do this from the list page shown above for the desired list.
How do I unsubscribe from a list?
Follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of any list email you have received. Alternatively, you can unsubscribe from the list page shown above for the desired list.
How do I manage my membership in a Life Church email list??
Our e-mail lists are hosted through Google Apps for Education. You can manage your list membership (e.g. switch between email mode and digest mode) through the list web page, but you must have a Google account in order to do so. Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Determine if you already have a Google account. If you have Gmail, then your Gmail account is automatically a Google account. You can actually use any email address that you control to create a Google account however.
    • If you have a Gmail account consider making this the email address you use to join our list.
    • If you have Gmail, but you want to use a different (i.e. non-Gmail) address to join our list, consider making your other email address an alternate to your Gmail address.
    • If neither of these options appeals to you, you can set up your non-Gmail address as a Google Account, but you will not be able to manage your Life Church email list through the web site.
  2. Create a Google Account (skip this step if you already have a Google account). A Google account is not necessarily a Gmail account you can actually use any email address that you control to create a Google account. All Gmail accounts are automatically Google accounts however, so if you already have a Gmail
  3. Sign in to your Google Account, navigate to the web page of the Life Church list you want to manage.
Can I use Evite with a church email list?
Yes, Evite has set up a way for you to send to an email list. Please check out the following web page for instructions:
How do I send an Evite invitation to a distribution list or group address?
Why must I follow special instructions to send an Evite to an email list?
Evite is a convenient web-based tool that allows you to manage invitations to parties and other events. The Evite web site allows you to upload a description of your event (including purpose, time, location, and other important information) and then upload a list of names and corresponding email addresses for people that you wish to invite. Evite then creates a web page for your event. When you click on the “send invitations” button, the service sends an email to all of the people on your list announcing the event.
Each invitation email contains a link back to the event web page. When the recipient clicks on this link he/she is taken to the web page and given an opportunity to accept or decline the invitation. If you make the guest list public, then recipients of your invitation will also be able to see who else has accepted or declined your invitation.
You must understand one important fact about the way Evite works if you want to send an invitation to a church mailing list. The link in each invitation email contains a special code that uniquely identifies the event and the recipient. This allows Evite to “know who you are” when you click on the link. If you try to send an evite to a list however, this fact can work against you.
Let’s say that you set up a party in Evite and you include in your guest list: “Life Church” <connect@community.lifechurchboston.org>
The Evite service can’t distinguish this from a person named “Life Church”. When the invitations go out Evite will generate a code for “Life Church” and it will include this code in the link that goes to the connect list address. Of course this email will be sent to the connect list which will send it to all of the connect list subscribers. Everyone who clicks on the invitation link will be identified as “Life Church”. The first person to respond to the invitation will be responding as “Life Church” and so will everyone else. Instead of seeing a number of responses for individual members of the list, you will see only a single response for “Life Church” that will reflect whatever decision the most recent recipient made.
In order to avoid this problem Evite has set up a way for you send to an email list. Please check out the following web page for instructions:
