The National Association for Home Care provides this listserv as a service for its FSA members. It is a mechanism intended to facilitate the discussion of issues of interest to Home Care and Hospice Associations on the state level. In addition, members can join in the discussion and exchange questions and ideas with other members and key NAHC staff.
The listserv will allow you to attach files to your e-mail messages. There are a couple of things you want to keep in mind before you send a message. First, not everyone has the same software that you have. So please convert your document into a text only or ASCII file before sending it. This way everyone can read it. The second thing you should keep in mind is the size of file you are sending. Many internet service providers place restrictions on the size of e-mail files. Try to keep your attachments short.
An active link in your e-mail can be very useful and very appreciated by the receiver and is easy to do. To create an active link in your message just use this format "". (example;)
To create an active link from your e-mail message to a web site is as simple as putting "http://" in front any web address you site in your message. (example; http://www.nahc.org).
Signing your e-mails
Although most e-mail clients, the software which retrieves your e-mail from the server, puts the orginal senders e-mail address in the message some do not. This can cause a problem when you would like to send a private message to the sender instead of the whole list of subscribers. You can either type your name and e-mail address at the bottom of your message or you can set up a "signature file" in your e-mail client to automatically put it there for you.
