*****  SuzakuNews E-mail Address Migration

We apologize for the multiple emails you may receive, but NASA is
consolidating to a single email list system. Before the end of April
the Suzaku News email exploder will migrate over to the new NASA list
manager. The online subscription form will still work, but if you have
spam filtering in place the emails will now be coming from:


So please add that or *lists.nasa.gov to your allow list if needed.

Also, with the changeover you will receive a confirmation email which
includes details on how to unsubscribe or change your address in the
new system.

All of our current email news lists are being migrated, and you may
receive multiple requests to resubscribe to the different lists that
you are on.

One advantage of the new system is that for a single email address,
you will be able to manage/update many of the NASA lists that you are on.

If you are subscribed under multiple names for different lists (e.g.,
"name@univ.edu" and "name@astro.univ.edu") you may want to unsubscribe and
resubscribe so as to be using just one address. (This will help for the
monthly confirmations that will be sent out.)  The mailing list software
will send you more directions after you confirm your subscription.
