Wamboin Community Association

Electronic Noticeboard

The WCA Electronic Noticeboard is a mailing list that enables an individual subscriber to send email messages to all subscribers, through a single email address. It is intended for the dissemination of community-related information to residents in the Wamboin and Bywong area. Currently, around 200 residents have subscribed to, and receive messages on the Electronic Noticeboard.

Subscribing to the Electronic Noticeboard

You can subscribe to the WCA Electronic Noticeboard by clicking here and providing your subscription email address.

This email address will then be submitted for subscription, and the email 'robot'—Mailman—will immediately send a return email to this address, requesting that the recipient confirm the subscription request. You should simply reply as requested.

Your subscription request will then be forwarded to the Noticeboard moderator for approval, which will normally take no more than 24 hours. No subscription request has ever been rejected—this process just helps to prevent spam mail. When the moderator has approved your subscription request, you will receive a welcome message.

Managing Your Subscription (including Unsubscribing)

For general information about the mailing list, click here.

To unsubscribe or change your options (eg, switch to or from digest mode, change your password, etc.), visit the subscription page by clicking on the above link and entering your subscribed email address.

You can also make such adjustments via email by sending a message to:


with the word `help' in the subject or body (don't include the quotes), and you will get back a message with instructions.

You must know your password to change your subscription options (including changing the password, itself) or to unsubscribe without confirmation. If you can't remember it, there is an option to have your password emailed to you. Normally, Mailman will remind you of your Noticeboard password every month, although you can disable this option if you prefer. This reminder will also include instructions on how to unsubscribe or change your account options.

Posting a Notice on the Electronic Noticeboard

To post a notice on the WCA Electronic Noticeboard you must first subscribe, as described above (To minimise the potential for spamming, only subscribers can post notices). Once subscribed, simply send your notice to:


Subscribers will receive messages as they are posted; messages do not require approval by the list moderator. Messages can only be posted by subscribers, and will be sent only to subscribers.

Noticeboard Etiquette

Please note that the WCA Electronic Notice Board is intended for the dissemination of community-related notices. It is not intended for exchanges between subscribers, nor for any material that would not be acceptable on any public notice board. Any attachments to a message are stripped off before the message is posted (to minimise the risk of virus transmission), so messages should be entirely contained within the text of the relevant email.

Please observe standard email etiquette, assume that you are addressing a mixed audience of all ages, and avoid any comments of a personal nature.
