Create "Everyone" mailing lists

Check this box if you wish to create and maintain "Everyone" mailing lists for all of your domains (e.g. ""). A list will be created for each domain, which makes it possible for you to send a message to every user of a domain simply by addressing the message to "everyone@<domain>". Private accounts are hidden from "Everyone" mailing lists. This option is disabled by default.

Create "MasterEveryone" list

Enable this option if you want there to be a "MasterEveryone" mailing list. Everyone on all of your domain-specific "everyone" lists will be included on this list. This option is disabled by default.

Apply content & spam filters to list mail before cracking individual copies

When the Deliver list mail to each member individually option is chosen on the Routing screen of the mailing list editor, enabling this control will cause the content filter rules and spam filter to be applied to list messages before they are copied and distributed to list members.

Honor '<List>-subscribe' and '<List>-unsubscribe' addresses

Click this checkbox if you want MDaemon to recognize email addresses of this format as valid (as long as the list actually exists) in order to facilitate an easier method for users to join and leave your mailing lists. For example: suppose you have a list called People will be able to subscribe/unsubscribe to your list by sending an email message to and The content of the subject and message body is irrelevant. Also, when this feature is active MDaemon will insert the following header into all list messages:

List-Unsubscribe: <mailto:<List>>

Some mail clients can pick up on this and make an UNSUBSCRIBE button available to users automatically.

You can override this option for individual lists by specifying a value for the List-Subscribe and List-Unsubscribe headers in the Mailing List URLs options located on the Mailing List Editor's Moderation screen.

Add 'Sender: <List>' header to all list messages

Enable this option if you wish to insert the Sender header into mailing list messages.

Mailing list pruner deletes messages that it can't parse

When this option is enabled, MDaemon will delete list messages that do not contain a parsable address.

Mailing list pruner saves messages that cause list member removal

When MDaemon scans returned list messages in an attempt to remove member addresses that cannot be reached, this control will cause messages that result in a list member ' s removal to be saved. For more information, see the Remove undeliverable email addresses. option on the Settings screen.

Screen incoming mailing list mail for obvious non-list content

Check this box if you wish MDaemon to reject messages addressed to a mailing list when it determines that they should have been addressed to the system account instead. For example, a user may join or leave a list by placing the Subscribe or Unsubscribe command at the beginning of an email message and sending that message to the system address (e.g. ""). Oftentimes users erroneously try to send those sorts of messages to the list itself. This option will prevent those messages from being posted to the list.

Remove duplicate list recipients when single message submitted to multiple lists

When this option is enabled and a single message is addressed to multiple mailing lists, MDaemon will deliver only one copy of the message to any recipient who is a member of more than one of the lists. For example, if is a member of and and an incoming message is addressed to both lists, Frank will receive only one copy of the message rather than two. This option only applies to lists, therefore in the above example if the message were addressed to Frank directly, plus the two lists, then Frank would receive two copies of the message rather than three. This option is disabled by default.

Using this option is not generally recommended. Mailing lists can be used and organized many different ways by users, and there is no way of knowing which list will receive the message when limiting duplicates in this way. Therefore using this option could cause unnecessary difficulties for some users, due to message threading preferences, using IMAP filters to sort messages to specific folders, and so on.

Add the following custom 'Header: value' to all list messages

If you wish to add a static header/value combination (such as "Precedence: bulk") to all list messages, specify that text here.

Use this option if you wish to customize the subject used when MDaemon sends mailing list digest messages. The default is: " $LISTNAME$ message digest $TIMESTAMP$ $ISSUE$. " The macros expand to the name of the mailing list, the time-stamp of the digest message creation, and the issue number.

    Mailing Lists

    Mailing Lists

    Mailing lists are the bread and butter of project communications. If a user is exposed to any forum besides the web pages, it is most likely to be one of the project's mailing lists. But before they experience the mailing list itself, they will experience the mailing list interface—that is, the mechanism by which they join ("subscribe to") the list. This brings us to Rule #1 of mailing lists:

    Don't try to manage mailing lists by hand—get list management software.

    It will be tempting to put this off. Setting up mailing list management software might seem like overkill at first. Managing small, low-traffic lists by hand will seem seductively easy: you just set up a subscription address that forwards to you, and when someone mails it, you add (or remove) their email address in some text file that holds all the addresses on the list. What could be simpler?

    The trick is that good mailing list management—which is what people have come to expect—is not simple at all. It's not just about subscribing and unsubscribing users when they request. It's also about moderating to prevent spam, offering the mailing list in digest versus message-by-message form, providing standard list and project information by means of auto-responders, and various other things. A human being monitoring a subscription address can supply only a bare minimum of functionality, and even then not as reliably and promptly as software could.

    Modern list management software usually offers at least the following features:

    Both email- and web-based subscription

    When a user subscribes to a list, she should promptly get an automated welcome message in reply, telling her what she has subscribed to, how to interact further with the mailing list software, and (most importantly) how to unsubscribe. This automatic reply can be customized to contain project-specific information, of course, such as the project's web site, FAQ location, etc.

    Subscription in either digest mode or message-by-message mode

    In digest mode, the subscriber receives one email per day, containing all the list activity for that day. For people who are following a list loosely, without participating, digest mode is often preferable, because it allows them to scan all the subjects at once and avoid the distraction of emails coming in at random times.

    Moderation features

    To "moderate" is to check posts to make sure they are a)notspam, and b)ontopic, before they go out to the entire list. Moderation necessarily involves humans, but software can do a lot to make it easier. There is more said about moderation later.

    Administrative interface

    Among other things, this enables an administrator to go in and remove obsolete addresses easily. This can become urgent when a recipient's address starts sending automatic "I am no longer at this address" replies back to the list in response to every list post. (Some mailing list software can even detect this by itself and unsubscribe the person automatically.)

    Header manipulation

    Many people have sophisticated filtering and replying rules set up in their mail readers. Mailing list software can add and manipulate certain standard headers for these people to take advantage of (more details below).

    All posts to the managed lists are stored and made available on the web; alternatively, some mailing list software offers special interfaces for plugging in an external archiving tool such as MHonArc ( ). As the section called “Conspicuous Use of Archives” in Chapter6, Communications discusses, archiving is crucial.

    The point of all this is merely to emphasize that mailing list management is a complex problem that has been given a lot of thought, and mostly been solved. You certainly don't need to become an expert in it. But you should be aware that there's always room to learn more, and that list management will occupy your attention from time to time in the course of running a free software project. Below we'll examine a few of the most common mailing list configuration issues.

    Spam Prevention Filtering posts

    There are three basic techniques for preventing spam posts, and most mailing list software offers all three. They are best used in tandem:

    Only auto-allow postings from list subscribers.

    This is effective as far as it goes, and also involves very little administrative overhead, since it's usually just a matter of changing a setting in the mailing list software's configuration. But note that posts which aren't automatically approved must not be simply discarded. Instead, they should be passed along for moderation, for two reasons. First, you want to allow non-subscribers to post. A person with a question or suggestion should not need to subscribe to a mailing list just to make a single post there. Second, even subscribers may sometimes post from an address other than the one by which they're subscribed. Email addresses are not a reliable method of identifying people, and shouldn't be treated as such.

    Filter posts through spam-filtering software.

    If the mailing list software makes it possible (most do), you can have posts filtered by spam-filtering software. Automatic spam-filtering is not perfect, and never will be, since there is a never-ending arms race between spammers and filter writers. However, it can greatly reduce the amount of spam that gets through to the moderation queue, and since the longer that queue is the more time humans must spend examining it, any amount of automated filtering is beneficial.

    There is not space here for detailed instructions on setting up spam filters. You will have to consult your mailing list software's documentation for that (see the section called “Software” later in this chapter ). List software often comes with some built-in spam prevention features, but you may want to add some third-party filters. I've had good experiences with these two: SpamAssassin ( ) and SpamProbe ( ). This is not a comment on the many other open source spam filters out there, some of which are apparently also quite good. I just happen to have used those two myself and been satisfied with them.

    For mails that aren't automatically allowed by virtue of being from a list subscriber, and which make it through the spam filtering software, if any, the last stage is moderation. the mail is routed to a special address, where a human examines it and confirms or rejects it.

    Confirming a post takes one of two forms: you can accept the post just this once, or you can tell the list software to allow this and all future posts from the same sender. You almost always want to do the latter, in order to reduce the future moderation burden. Details on how to confirm vary from system to system, but it's usually a matter of replying to a special address with the command "accept" (meaning accept just this one post) or "allow" (allow this and future posts).

    Rejecting is usually done by simply ignoring the moderation mail. If the list software never receives confirmation that something is a valid post, then it won't pass that post on to the list, so simply dropping the moderation mail achieves the desired effect. Sometimes you also have the option of responding with a "reject" or "deny" command, to automatically disapprove future mails from the same sender without even running them through moderation. There is rarely any point doing this, since moderation is mostly about spam prevention, and spammers tend not to send from the same address twice anyway.

    Be sure to use moderation only for filtering out spams and clearly off-topic messages, such as when someone accidentally posts to the wrong mailing list. The moderation system will usually give you a way to respond directly to the sender, but don't use that method to answer questions that really belong on the mailing list itself, even if you know the answer off the top of your head. To do so would deprive the project's community of an accurate picture of what sorts of questions people are asking, and deprive them of a chance to answer questions themselves and/or see answers from others. Mailing list moderation is strictly about keeping the list free of junk and off-topic emails, nothing more.

    OptinMonster is a fantastic list buildingtool that works well.

    The guys behind this plugin really know what they are doing Syed Balkhi (founder of WP Beginner) and Thomas Griffin (creator of the Soliloquy slider plugin) have put something together that is very special.

    The plugin started it’s life out as a WordPress plugin but it has evolved into so much more.

    OptinMonster is now a cloud based app so all of your opt-in forms will be managed from a central location – giving you a great overview.

    You can then quickly roll out split tests and make tweaks without logging into different WordPress installations.

    This plugin is used by over 50,000+ websites.

    Popup Domination supports just one type of opt-in form popovers (or popups).

    But, that being said it does the job incredibly well.

    The great thing about this plugin is that you can either install it as a WordPress plugin, or install to any website with the standalone version.

    Let me start off by saying that while LeadPages comes with a WordPress plugin, you are getting an entire platform from which to build your list.

    The above image is taken from a landing page I recently made in around 5 minutes.

    LeadPages will help you grow your list by doing the following:

    • Allowing you to create high converting landing pages within minutes.
    • Create your own 2-step opt-ins with LeadBoxes. These allow you to turn any link on any website into a link that displays a popover when clicked (can increase conversion rates by 30%).
    • Generate a LeadLink which allows subscribes to join your list, sub-list or subscribe to a webinar with a single click.

    I use LeadPages to handle the delivery of digital assets and then use 2-step opt-ins to offer exclusive content to my subscribers.

    By doing this I have been able to triple my conversion rates .

    • 70+ Landing page templates (sortable by conversion rate)
    • Unlimited landing pages
    • Unlimited domains
    • No traffic limitation
    • Mobile friendly templates
    • Built in split testing
    • Built in analytics
    • LeadBoxes
    • LeadLinks
    • WordPress plugin
    • Complete hosting of your landing pages
    • Digital asset delivery
    • Supports all major mailing list providers
    • Incredible support

    Price: $37/month+


    OptinLinks gives you the ability to display a 2 step opt-in form, similar to how LeadPages does.But it goes a step further and protects subscriber-only content.

    All at a fraction of the cost while providing some incredible features guaranteed to skyrocket your opt-ins like nothing you have seen before.

    There are some differences here.

    Its not a hosted system, OptinLinks runs from your own server.

    Despite this, you can still use the links this plugin generates elsewhere on the web with the professional version.

    There are a few things here that make this plugin simply incredible.

    One of the issues I have had with the likes of LeadPages, is that they have no way of ensuring someone confirms (when using double opt-in) after they subscribe.

    OptinLinks has a nifty solution for this the plugin will show a waiting for confirmation notification to prompt subscribers to confirm.

    The plugin will then remember that the user has subscribed and then allow you to restrict access to particular pages for none-subscribers.

    In fact, when anyone tries to access the secured page, theyll be prompted to opt-in.

    Your subscriber exclusive content actually stays exclusive .

    Ultimately this plugin solves a purpose but it’s not as robust as LeadPages.

    • Multiple templates
    • Fully responsive
    • Easy placement via shortcode
    • Subscribe leads to multiple lists
    • Confirm your leads in real time
    • Save leads to a database
    • Available for HTML sites
    • Links work anywhere on the web
    • Built in split testing
    • Client management portal (in professional version)
    • Impressive built in analytics
    • Protect your subscriber exclusive content
    • Supports all major email marketing providers

    Price: $37+

    Plugmatter Feature Box

    Feature Boxes are an incredible way to build your list.

    Plenty of list building experts all over the web have cited that they get incredible conversions when using these.

    The problem has always been that there was never a decent plugin for adding them.

    The Feature Box plugin from Plugmatter makes this easy while complementing other email marketing plugins very well.

    • A/B split testing
    • Page level targeting
    • Target returning users
    • 6+ premium templates
    • Support for multiple email providers
    • Ability to turn off for existing subscribers

    Price: $37

    Optimize Press 2.0

    We talked a bit about LeadPages earlier, which enables you to create high converting opt-in forms in minutes.

    The limitation with LeadPages is customization .

    One of the differences here is that Optimize Press has a drag and drop page editor that allows you to customize your landing pages and make them look exactly how you want them to.

    Optimize Press recently released a feature called the Overlay Optimizer; this allows you to utilize 2 step opt-ins similar to how LeadPages does.

    With Optimize Press you have full control over your content and an impressive array of features.

    • Over 30 themes to choose from
    • Over 40 page elements to utilize
    • Comes with theme and plugin versions
    • Comes with a membership plugin (could save you $100-$300)
    • Create sales pages
    • Create landing pages
    • Create launch funnels
    • Create membership portals
    • Mobile optimized
    • Overlay optimizer (2 step opt-in)
    • Works with all email marketing platforms
    • Works with major membership systems like Wishlist, DAP, MemberMouse etc

    Price: $97

    Optin Architect

    Optin Architect is a cloud based tool that allows you to create high converting opt-in forms on the fly.

    You wont get a specific WordPress plugin here, but I wanted to include it since it does support WordPress (and all major content management systems).

    The great thing here is that if you manage a large number of sites and want to monitor your conversions from a single dashboard this is incredible.

    • Large selection of templates
    • Opt-in types include popovers, sidebars and site-wide opt-ins
    • Detailed analytics dashboard
    • Turn any link into a form
    • Exit intent
    • Unlimited forms
    • Embed on any website
    • GoToWebinar integration
    • Facebook integration
    • Supports major mailing list providers
    • Supports all major CMS and ecommerce platforms

    Price: $97/year+

    The reality about email marketing plugins

    Ive tested countless mailing list plugins.

    And that includes the free ones.

    There are some lessons that I have learned the hard way.

    • Most free list building plugins cost more in the long run – some require you to purchase add-ons that push the cost above a premium plugin, they lack important features or provide little to no support. All meaning that you end up wasting time and money when you didn’t have to.
    • Customization options are important – this is more of a personal preference.
    • You need a good all round list building plugin that candisplay opt-in forms in the right places.
    How to pick the perfect list building plugin for you

    There are a lot of different situations where certain plugins work better than others.

    Its important to understand exactly what you want to accomplish.

    Below I have put together some motivations and scenarios together and which list building plugin/platform works best:

    Value for money

    Thrive Leads on a feature to cost ratio, Thrive Leadswins here. You get incredible features and a form editor that allows you to customise every detail quickly.

    What makes this even better is that you get lifetime updates on whichever plan you choose.

    A great all round list building plugin

    In my opinion, Thrive Leads is the best all round list building plugin due to value for money, features and customization options.

    OptinMonster comes in a close second. Yes, it’s now a cloud app rather than just a WordPress plugin but it has all the features you need and it’s reliable.

    A feature intensive mailing list plugin

    Thrive Leads isthe most feature intensive plugin when it comes to adding opt-in forms, customization and testing. It even has game changing features like Smart Links.

    Optimize Press is a great candidate here too if you want to create landing pages that get results. The features are incredible. It comes with a theme and plugin version as well as a membership plugin.

    A light weight plugin that covers multiple opt-in types

    OptinMonster is very light weight but it’s now only available at a monthly or annual cost.

    Thrive Leads is a great option here, includes plenty of features and is designed with speed in mind. You also get lifetime updates whichever price plan you go for.

    To promote exclusive content and encourage people to click on your confirmation links

    OptinLinks This plugin will allow you to secure pages and restrict access to those who have opted in.

    Users that arent subscribed will be urged to subscribe to gain access and once someone enters their email address they will be shown a waiting for confirmation notification to encourage them to click the confirmation link if youre using a double opt-in process.

    While this is a VERY helpful plugin, the main attraction is the price. If you want a more robust solution, I would recommend going with LeadPages and using their LeadBoxes feature. This is what I use here on Blogging Wizard and the results are extremely impressive.

    A plugin to display high converting popovers

    OptinMonster is a great option but you really need the exit intent feature which is only available on $199/year or $29/month plans – I do like the benefits of it being a cloud app though. It’s handy if you have multiple sites.

    Popup Domination has exit intent available on the entry level plan ($49) and is a solid popover plugin but you can’t add any other opt-in form types.

    Thrive Leads is my winner here, itgives you the full set of features in their entry level plan ($49) so you can add popovers using the exit intent feature along with any other major oopt-in form types.

    A plugin to easily allow you to add a Feature Box

    Feature Box by Plugmatter is specifically designed to do this and has the documentation to help you get it done easily. No other plugin seems to make it all that easy to do this unless you have a widget area to add the opt-in form.

    Manage opt-in forms for multiple sites

    OptinMonster is mymy top pick here,it’s a more robust platform and has more features. Monthly payment options are available too.

    To build high converting landing pages

    I use LeadPages and Optimize Press, but they both fit more specific requirements.

    When I need a hosted solution or the ability to roll out tested and proven landing pages fast, I use LeadPages .

    When I need a much more in depth level of customization, I use Optimize Press .

    Your chance to get more email subscribers starts here

    MinGW offers several mailing lists open for discussion on feedback, bug reports, and user help. Searchable on-line archives of the mailing lists also provide a very useful resource. Please subscribe to the mailing-lists before submitting a post; to avoid SPAM. anonymous mails are filtered. By subscribing, you can be sure your post will get through. Please read the Etiquette before posting; failure to respect it may reduce your chances of receiving a useful reply or may cause your account to become moderated.

    Available Mailing Lists

    MinGW-users . This is the general mailing list for MinGW users. Archives of this list are available on gmane: gmane.comp.gnu.mingw.user. Please search the archives before posting as many common questions have already been answered. MinGW-msys . This is the general mailing list for MSYS users. NOTICE: This list is now deprecated; further postings and/or subscription requests will be refused. It is recommended that all new queries be directed to the MinGW-users list, instead of using deprecated lists. Do note however, that archives of this list are available on gmane: gmane.comp.gnu.mingw.msys ; please search them before posting, as many common questions have already been answered. MinGW-dvlpr . This is a private mailing list for MinGW developers. Archives of previous discussions are available on gmane: gmane.comp.gnu.mingw.devel. MinGW-cvs . This is a notification list for cvs changes. Archives are available at SourceForge: mingw-cvs archives. MinGW-notify . This is a notification list for control changes. Archives are available on gmane: gmane.comp.gnu.mingw.announce so you can know what happened to a bug report or a patch, etc.

    MinGW is an open source project, as such people are dedicating their spare time to the goals and development of the project, please keep that in mind when posting.

    When posting, the following commonly accepted guidelines are strongly encouraged. Failure to follow these guidelines will cause your postings to be ignored by many knowledgeable people and repeated offenses will cause your account to become moderated.

    • The language of the lists is English ; if you post in any foreign language, you are most unlikely to receive any reply.
    • Do search the mailing list archives before posting, (see the gmane links, associated with each of the lists above); many questions have already been asked and answered.
    • Do use a meaningful subject line. A subject line should include a pertinent few words summarizing the subject of the email; (when one replies to emails, one should always make certain the subject line of the email is still relevant to the reply). In particular, if you receive list mail in digest format, do always set the subject back to the original text, from the message to which you are replying. Do not reply with a subject of "Re: MinGW-. Digest no. " ; such replies are prime candidates for deletion, without being read.
    • Do post in a MIME format with "Content-Type: text /plain". Do not post as HTML, or in any other MIME format, (and in particular, do not use multi-part MIME, with plain text duplicated as HTML); some list subscribers are unable to, or choose not to read such mail, and will be unable or unwilling to answer you.
    • Do not post messages with very long lines of text; except when pasting screenshots, where line wrapping might lead to confusion, ensure that lines of running text are wrapped with hard line breaks, at a length of between 65 and 72 characters.
    • Do quote sections of the original text, and interleave your replies to individual points, below the relevant context. Do not top-post ; (this treatise explains why top-posting is considered unacceptable).
    • Do trim out sections of the original mail, which are not required to establish the context of your reply. (Once more, this is particularly important when replying to mail received in digest form; do reply to one subject at a time . and do remove all content related to other subjects). Do not persistently recycle irrelevant junk, quoted from earlier messages in the thread.
    • Do not include "legal mumble" signatures. You are posting to a list that will be read by thousands of users, and anything you say will be archived in the public domain; in this context, such drivel in your signature is neither enforceable, nor meaningful.
    • Do not hijack an existing topic thread, when you wish to introduce an unrelated subject; (i.e. do not reply to an existing message, when your reply is unrelated to the original subject). When you want to introduce a new topic, plainly start a new thread, (i.e. a completely new message). Replying in an existing thread confuses mail readers and humans who are trying to participate in the original discussion; it is a sure way to irritate other subscribers, and will likely get you ignored, if not even black-listed.

    Historical information on netiquette may be found in RFC-1855 .

    Marketing Lists, Consumer Mailing Lists and Leads Online

    Your direct marketing is only as good as the mailing list it's based on. Without a quality list of target prospects, response rates and ROI will suffer.

    Experian's database of U.S. consumers gives direct mail marketers access to over 300 million consumers. Yet more important than the vast size of our dataset is the quality of our data. While many data providers merely resell third-party lists, we collect data from a broad range of sources, including our own proprietary credit data on more than 140 million households.

    Using our List Builder you can easily generate a highly targeted mailing list. Narrow your audience based on a large number of criteria, including age, income, gender, and location. Target new homeowners, renters, new parents, high-income households, and countless other demographics. This ability to create and refine a list of targeted leads makes our List Builder the perfect tool for retailers, financial service firms, realtors, and other business owners.

    As your "one-stop" source for mailing lists, we are dedicated to providing you not only quality data but also excellent service, support and the resources you need to make your next marketing campaign a success.

    Mailing Lists

    The three mailing lists (see the menu items on the left) have slightly different purposes, and you might not be interested in subscribing to all of them:

    • gmx-announce has extremely low traffic and will only contain information from the GROMACS crew. Users can not post to this list, but we strongly recommend everyone to subscribe to it, so you get notice about new versions and severe bugs, events and job postings.
    • gmx-users is the normal discussion forum for installation, usage and all other questions not related to development. A lot of traffic.
    • gmx-developers is the place for developers. Post all your questions, suggestions and code impromevents here!

    If you don't like to have your mailbox flooded with messages you can choose a digest alternative and only get one larger mail per day. Please don't include the entire digest if you reply.

    Can't Post?

    The mailing list software checks your return address and only accepts postings from subscribed members. For this to work, it is important that you subscribe with your mail address exactly as it appears in the headers of the mails you send, otherwise your posts will be rejected! (E.g. is different from ; and is different from . ). If you don't, you will get a message about only subscribed members being allowed.

    Mailing List Etiquette

    When posting to the emailing list, it is important to remember that those on the emailing list are just fellow users of the software. They are not paid to answer your question. With that in mind, some things that will assist in improving the chance that you get some helpful response to your problem are:

    A very good article for anyone who may be asking or answering questions on an emailing lists to read is How To Ask Questions The Smart Way. but do not pester Eric S. Raymond and Rick Moen (the authors of that page) with questions about GROMACS or anything else. A recently published article has also appeared on this topic, with particular focus on getting help on scientific forums.

    Mailing Lists

    W3C hosts hundreds of mailing lists and archives. many of them public. for the benefit of the Web community at large. By providing this service, we hope to foster a highly responsive and interactive community for creating new ideas and advancing web technologies and culture.

    Anyone with a valid email address can participate on a W3C public mailing list following the steps below.

    General information

    Each W3C mailing list has its own policies regarding who may post to the list. Those subscribed to each list are generally able to post directly to the list without delay; those who are not may be subject to manual moderation (at least the first time they post.)

    First-time posters to our lists with public archives will need to give us permission to publish their message in our public archives using our archive approval system .

    Each mailing list has a specific purpose; please try to avoid widely cross-posting to multiple lists if possible.

    Conference announcements are generally not welcome on W3C lists; if you feel a specific conference is of very high interest to the subscribers of a given list, you should write a custom message to that list, containing a very short summary with a pointer to more information.

    Posts to our lists are generally not removed or edited, except in very rare circumstances. See our Archive Editing Policy for more information.

    Subscribing and Unsubscribing

    Once you have chosen a list (say, ""), to subscribe send a message to with the subject line "subscribe" (the body can be empty).

    To reduce spam, we may require you to confirm your subscription request; learn more about W3C's archive approval system and forgery prevention using SPF (Sender Policy Framework) .

    To unsubscribe from, send a message to with the subject line "unsubscribe" (the body can be empty).

    Further information on subscription administration is available.
