I recently received a note about a problem that one of our NCR members was having in posting to the TDATA-L list. They can receive postings sent from TDATA-L, but when they attempt to send a posting to the TDATA-L list their posting is rejected.
When mail is sent to NCR, their server is able to handle aliases. However, when e-mail is sent from NCR, their e-mail address has some kind of internal ID that consists of a couple of letters and then a bunch of numbers.
The postings to the TDATA-L discussion group are limited to its members, this is done primarily to limit SPAM from the outside world. Since NCR e-mail uses their own internal ID, the NCR people who subscribed to TDATA-L and used an alias are probably unable to send to the list.
There are two ways to subscribe to the TDATA-L: by e-mail or by the TDATA-L web page. An NCR person who subscribed by e-mail shouldn't have a problem since their address came with NCR's internal ID. Those who subscribed by the web page can specify an alias and it's probably these people who are having problems.
If you haven't already done so, you will have to request a password using the web page (which you will have to confirm by e-mail - similar to when you subscribed). Once your password has been confirmed, then you can logon using your alias and unsubscribe. You can then subscribe again using your NCR internal ID.
If you are a lurker, then you won't have to do anything until you want to post to the list.
This is probably a good time to remind people about another problem. If your e-mail provider has been been trouble delivering your mail (or you let your mail account get full) and you stop receiving postings from TDATA-L, you have probably been unsubscribed. Should this happen, please resubscribe.
What happens is that the LSoft server, which hosts the TDATA-L list, will continue to attempt to send you a posting which has not been successfully delivered. So if your e-mail provider has been having problems, you really shouldn't miss any postings. However, if the LSoft server can not successfully send you a posting after 5 days, then you are automatically deleted from the list. (Sorry, but I don't have any control over this).
Finally, please let people know about this discussion group - it is open to everybody who has an interest in the Teradata database.
