Notification of new DA website posts

Dear Intergroup member

I just added the July Minutes to the website, and thought it would be useful to let people know of new posts.

I have therefore added a new feature to the DA website – all intergroup members will get an automatic email notification.  Other people can also be added if they would like by contacting me.  The number of posts is small, and at the moment only done by me, and relates to meetings and files I upload.

So – this is a test.  Please let me know if you think it is not a good idea.  At the moment it goes to the intergroup email address, so excluding individuals would be a little tricky.

For feedback, email: webmaster@debtorsanonymous.org.uk
