Mailing List

Introduction


Asahi Net users may open their own publically-accessible Internet mailing lists (aka "listservs") using the Majordomo list maintenance system.


Charges


All charges shown exclude tax.

Startup charge 2000 yen
Monthly charge Up to 300 members 500 yen
Up to 1,000 members 800 yen
Up to 3,000 members 1500 yen
Up to 10,000 members 2500 yen
Archiving 500 yen per 10MB

How charges are applied

The startup fee will be applied in the month that the mailing list is actually created. Monthly charges, including archiving charges, will be handled as follows:

  • If application is received by the 20th of a given month, charges will be applied starting in that month.
  • If application is received on the 21st or later of a given month, charges will be applied starting the next month.

New mailing lists will be established within 5 business days of application (non-business days are Saturday, Sunday, national holidays, and Dec 29 through Jan 4). Mailing list termination will become effective on the last day of the month following the month in which application for termination is received. It is expected that the mailing list owner or adminstrator will take responsibility to notify the members in the event of termination.


Changes to list size or archive size

  • When an increase in list size or archive size is requested, the change will be put into effect within 5 business days of application. When application is received by the 20th of a given month, increased charges will be applied starting in that month; when application is received on the 21st or later of a given month, increased charges will be applied starting the next month.
  • When a decrease in list size or archive size is requested by the 20th of a given month, the change will both go into effect, and reduced charges will be applied, starting from the beginning of the next month. When the decrease is requested on the 21st or later, the change will both go into effect and reduced charges will be applied starting from the beginning of the month following the next month. For example, if the decrease were requested on September 19th, changes would go into effect and charges would be reduced from October 1st. However, if the decrease were requested on September 21st, changes would go into effect and charges would be reduced from November 1st.
