The VNC mailing lists
If you don't know what a mailing list is or how it works, have a look at
There are 3 different mailing lists - you can choose the one(s) most
appropriate for your level of interest!
|Please, before sending any questions to the mailing list,
make sure you've read the FAQ ! And the documentation
for the software you're using. And read them again. And checked the
page and searched the mailing
list archives. There are hundreds of helpful and friendly people
on the mailing list, but they're more likely to remain helpful and friendly
if you don't expect them to do your work for you!
||Main list for questions, suggestions, bug reports etc
||This carries the same messages, but will just send you one message
a day containing all of the last day's messages. You may prefer this
to the standard list, particularly if your mail reader won't filter the
traffic into a separate folder for you.
|This is for announcements of new versions of VNC, successful ports
to other platforms, availability of related software. This list is 'moderated',
which means that messages sent here will only appear if we approve them,
which we will do provided they are appropriate for the list.
Subscribing & unsubscribing
You can add yourself to or remove yourself from the mailing lists by
sending commands in the body of an email to email@example.com
This asks for your name to be added to the list. Replace 'vnc-list'
with the list of your choice. More details will then be sent to you
You can remove yourself from the list in the same way, by using 'unsubscribe'
instead of 'subscribe'. You can also just send the command 'help',
to get more detailed instructions. Note that these should be sent to 'majordomo'
and not to the list itself! If your mailer modifies your email
address on the way out, you will be subscribed under this modified name,
which can make unsubscribing difficult, particularly if the mailer changes
it to something different at a later time, so if you like you can specify
the email address to be used:
subscribe vnc-list firstname.lastname@example.org
and the same applies to unsubscribing.
The archives of the mailing lists are available here,
and you can search them here.
