What is our message stick?

Our message stick is an email list (also called a listserv) that enables people across the country to share information and yarn. Members may use the message stick to seek info about current projects, advertise a job, or let others know about an upcoming event. If you belong to the message stick and have a query then another member may be able to help. You are required to be a member of the message stick to send out an email to other members.

So how does it work?

By using the message stick you can quickly and easily email a message to all other members, by sending an email to the email address

You may have a query about nutrition programs with mothers and children. To find other interested people you send an email with your question to the message stick which will then automatically forward it to all members.

The message stick email address is not a person but a computer program. The program maintains a list of the email addresses of all those subscribed to the message stick. When the computer program gets your email it duplicates it many times and sends one copy to everyone on the list.

When other members check their email they will find your message. Other members may also have sent messages, and individual members will decide to read (or delete) each message they have received. If you wish to respond to the message, you can send your response to all members - just 'reply' to the message stick - or only to the person who sent the message.

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet also uses the message stick to send out information that may be of general interest. Queries are also forwarded from non-members. You may wish to join the message stick so that you are kept up-to-date with what is happening in Indigenous health.


As a courtesy to others - and to protect yourself - please follow these guidelines when using the message stick.

message stick disclaimer

It is expected that members of the message stick will not send/post any messages that are obscene, racist, vulgar, sexually explicit, hateful, threatening, or that may in other ways violate any laws. The HealthInfoNet will attempt to keep any objectionable messages from being sent/posted through the emessage stick. We reserve the right to remove or edit inappropriate messages, but it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author. The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet does not endorse the content, viewpoint, accuracy or opinions expressed, and will not be held responsible for the content of any message.
