Discussion Lists

Service Description

MOREnet discussion lists provide an e-mail message forum where people with similar interests may leave messages for an entire group, just by posting to one list e-mail address. To receive the messages, members simply subscribe to the list.

MOREnet discussion lists are operated by a software program called Mailman. Mailman can be thought of as a postman. It sends e-mail messages to the proper recipients and takes care of subscription requests, postings and list archives.

At the beginning of each year, discussion list archives older than two years will be expired  and discussion lists not used in over two years will be removed.

Find information on specific lists at http://lists.more.net/mailman/listinfo.
