General Info

What Is CDNet Email?

CDNet Email is a self-managing email distribution system for the Community Development Network (ACT and Region). It is also called the CD Network or CDNet.

There Is One Email Posting Address

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. This provides distribution to over 2100 individual email addresses.

All your incoming messages have [CDNet] at the start of the subject line. There is no approval or monitoring process before messages are distributed. Email messages (but not all attachments) are archived.

Subscription Information Website

https://lists.cdnet.org.au/mailman/listinfo/cdnet This address is on the bottom of every CDNet email. At this address you can access the list archive and make changes to your own settings. You are also able to access this information on our Subscribe and Manage page. You can change how often you receive the messages (see ‘digest’). If you delete an email in your browser you can go to the archive and read the email content but usually not the attachment.

Email messages that are sent to the network are distributed automatically. You automatically receive all email messages.

Post A Message?

Avoid sending to blind or multiple addresses at the same time. If no address is in the To field, your post will be discarded (not distributed).

Make your subject line relevant to the information contained in your posting.

Messages must be sent from the same email address as registered on the list or they will be automatically discarded (not distributed). This prevents non-subscribers (such as people sending spam) sending messages to the network.

Where possible avoid sending attachments, it is better if the information is put in the content of your email. Include a common subject line and they should string as links in the archive. Ideally use plain text not html (usually a default setting in your browser). Avoid sending administrative enquiries to the whole network.

Help? Make Changes?

See https://lists.cdnet.org.au/mailman/listinfo/cdnet. You can change your password and other settings, as well as take yourself off the network. Or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Or you may email the administration area at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Put the word “help” in the subject or body (don't include the quotes) and you will get back a message with instructions.

An automatic reminder of your password will be sent to you each month by email. If you have lost your password and can’t wait a month you can request that it be sent to you from the one main URL (website). Look for the ‘Unsubscribe or edit options’ button.

Your password is needed to access the archive of messages and to change your settings but it is not required for you to send or receive messages.

Appropriate Content?

A general guide for emails is relevance and interest to the network.

Emails from registered email addresses are not monitored before distribution. An objective of the network is to facilitate discussion and debate and to share information that provides a better understanding of Community Development in the ACT and region. You are accountable for what you send in that the message will carry your address as the sender.

Virus Risk?

Attachments to emails can be a virus risk (but usually only if you open them). If you include an attachment please provide a summary in the content. Without this information some people will automatically delete attachments because of the virus risk. Best practice, don’t use attachments and put the information in the content of the email.
