IMPORTANT: Changes to the Community Forum and ThinLinc mailing lists

Dear Community,

We have made some slight changes to how this forum works. In short, we will be shutting down the ThinLinc mailing lists, and using the ThinLinc Community Forum to perform a similar role.

ThinLinc Announce

Messages which would normally be posted to the ThinLinc Announce mailing list will now be posted to the #announcements category on this forum. This is a low-volume category for important announcements by Cendio staff, for example new releases and security alerts. If you are a ThinLinc user, it is highly recommended that you be subscribed to this category.

Subscribed users will receive an email notification whenever a new post is made. New users will be subscribed automatically, however existing users will need to subscribe manually. To make sure you are subscribed:

  1. Browse to the #announcements category (clicking the hashtag will take you there)
  2. Click the bell icon at the top right of the category page
  3. Select “Watching First Post”

By selecting “Watching First Post” rather than “Watching”, you will receive an email for each new post in this category, but not for any comments on each post.

ThinLinc Technical

The ThinLinc Technical mailing list will be replaced by the various other categories on this forum. It is not critical that you are subscirbed to these categories, however you may wish to follow certain topics or categories of interest. Check back often and feel free to join in the conversation.

Mailing List Mode

For those who prefer traditional email-based mailing lists, the ThinLinc Community Forum supports mailing list mode. With mailing list mode enabled, you will receive one email per topic or post (including comments), and will be able to reply via email. In other words, you can treat the forum like a mailing list rather than using your browser.

To enable mailing list mode, first log in using your browser. Go to Preferences by clicking on your user icon, and select the Emails section. Check the box labeled Enable mailing list mode.

To start a new topic via email, use the email address To comment on an existing thread, simply reply to the email.

Note that in mailing list mode, you will need to manually mute any categories that you do not wish to receive notifications for.
