How to change your HPAA membership settings.

You can receive a single daily email for each group, change your email address, add a group, or unsubscribe from a group.

If you are not a current member of the HPAA -- or are not sure: just apply to join the HPAA. No charge, thanks to HPAA members. (If you are not sure whether you were a member in the past, it is easiest  for our volunteer team to simply add you as a new member.)

You can set up your email system to automatically sort your incoming mail into different inboxes. This is the most efficient way to use any distribution list or newsletter subscription -- not just HPAA emails -- and can be used to manage incoming mail related to certain subjects or people. With pre-sorted mail, you can efficiently deal with similar messages together. Available in almost all email systems. Automatically sort incoming email

Just send us a note...

...to receive a single daily email for a group, change your email address, add a group, or unsubscribe from a group.

Each HPAA group has a separate subscription list. The subject line of each email gives the name of the group in square brackets -- i.e. [HPAA Benefits]. All groups are moderated by HPAA volunteers.

Your email settings can be different for each HPAA group:

- "Each email" (You are sent an email for each post.)

- "Digest" (You are sent a single email for each group if there are any posts that day. Includes full copies of that day's posts.) You know what is being discussed in your groups, but get few emails. However, if you reply to a digest, you must remember to trim off the old content of the digest before you send your reply.

Please send a single note to the HPAA volunteer team -- subs@hpalumni.org -- with these details:

1. Specify what you want done with your membership for which groups -- including "Each email" or "Digest"...

- HP Alumni News. [HPAlumniNews] Once-a-month emails with links to information for U.S. HP/HPInc/HPE alumni on topics such as HP-related stock, professional networking, discounts, and local events. (No company news.)

- Benefits Forum. [HPAA Benefits] Discuss U.S. HP/HPInc/HPE COBRA and retiree health benefits, including Annual Enrollment and transition to Medicare. 

- Finance Forum. [HPAA Finance] Discuss U.S. pension, employee stock, Social Security, and other personal finance issues from an ex-HP/HPInc/HPE perspective.

- Job-Post Group. [HPAA Jobs] U.S. openings posted by recruiters, employers, and fellow members who are looking for people with HP/HPInc/HPE experience and expertise.

- TechTalk Forum. [HPAA TechTalk] Discuss personal technology issues from an ex-HP/HPInc/HPE perspective.

- Memorials Group. [HPAA Memorials]  Obituary and memorial service announcements for current and former U.S. HP/HPInc/HPE employees. Submit an announcement

2. If a change of address, specify any former or forwarded email addresses you may have used for your HPAA membership. (We use your email address, not your name, to identify you in our system.)

Please allow a couple of days for our volunteers to make the changes.
