FNF BASS Setting Up An Email Distribution List

Branch Hosts want to be able to send emails to all the attendees for their branch. FNF also has to remain GDPR compliant.  Acymailing allows emails to be sent to distribution lists under certain conditions.

To set up a distribution list you first need to ensure there's an FNF email account with a mailbox that Joomla can access to fetch emails for distribution.  You will need the email address and password of the branch email account.

Got to Acymailing and select Lists.  Then select the "Distribution Lists" menu item.

Click New and fill in the details of the MAIN INFORMATION section with the name of the distribution list (Branch Name is preferred), set the Frequency to 15 minutes if not already selected and make sure the list is enabled.

Next enter the email account information as shown, replacing the Username and Password with the ones for the branch:

Set the conditions for accepting emails as shown below.  For the subject line use the "New Email Code" tool on the left of your screen to generate a random subject, then add ": " to the end of the code for the subject line.

Next set up the Actions on accepting an email.  The email should be forwarded to the branch mailing list using the "FNF Branch List Template".  The senders from address and reply to address will ensure replies are sent to the originator, not to FNF head office!

Press "Test" to check the email account details are correct then save the Distribution List.

  • A Sheriff in Scotland found that a father was prevented for a year from seeing his children, because of false allegations of rape compounded by damaging support service interventions. #BelieveMe needs to re replaced with timely investigation. Findings of Fact should take place within three months - even that is an age for a young child to be needlessly deprived of a loving and much loved parent. There also need to be consequences to the making of false allegations.

  • Is Misogyny about to be Classified as a Hate Crime in UK Legislation? What about Misandry – or are men not Worth It? Last month, it was announced that a review by the Law Commission would look at whether offences driven by misogyny - dislike, contempt or ingrained prejudice against women - should be treated as hate crimes. And now it's emerged the same review will also consider the opposite - crimes motivated by misandry - hostility towards men. This is a potentially pivotal issue when the new matriarchy are pressing so hard in all walks of life for special treatment of women. We are living in a fair and egalitarian society in which men and women should expect to be offered equivalent support and protection under the law. Surely it’s a no-brainer to treat all gender hate crimes fairly, regardless of gender? Unless the law is fair and has effective checks and balances to avoid it being abused, it risks being used as a weapon by some parents with less than honourable motives. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45870948
  • False allegations are commonplace in family justice disputes and since legal aid changes in 2013 these have been encouraged by providing Legal Aid in family disputes to just one side when alleging domestic violence. Non-Molestation Orders have become the most favoured route to this and have gone up by 37% since. The figures were boosted by legislation in 2017 designed to stop thousands of people languishing on police bail for months or years without charge - as these orders have the same effect, but are easier to obtain.

  • FNF have advocated for more involvement of fathers with care of their children from day one, not least as it benefits children. New research at University of Manchester now demonstrates that fathers caring for babies alone also promotes relationship stability. Meanwhile, the Government rejected recommendations of the Select Committee for Women and Equalities to extend 'use-it-or-lose-it' paternity leave. State support for paternity leave is approximately 4% of that for maternity leave for parents on similar incomes. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/sep/30/hands-on-fathers-less-likely-to-break-up-with-partners-paternity-leave-childcare Please support FNF by sharing, liking, following, registering for free, becoming a member or making a donation.
