Using the LPV Mailman Mailing Lists

Introduction to Mailman

Mailman is a program that lets you send messages to and receive email messages from an existing mail list. If you send a message to the list, then everyone who is subscribed receives a copy. Likewise, if someone else sends a message to the list, you as a subscriber will receive a copy.

Mailman controls a list of addresses for a mail transport system to handle.  Mailman itself performs no mail delivery (though it has scripts to format and archive messages). Visit the NASA Agency Mailing List Service web site for more information and a link to a FAQ page.  Details about GNU Mailman can be found at this link.

To see a List of Members of a Mailman List

Go to the listinfo page:

   https://lists.nasa.gov/mailman/listinfo/listname

Where listname is replaced by the list name (see table below). This will take you to a page for the list, where information about the list is available, as well as instructions on how to list members. If you don't know your list member password, click the 'Unsubscribe or edit options' button, fill in your email address for the list on the next page and click the 'Remind' button to get a password reminder mailed to you.

Sending Messages to Others Via a Mailman List

To send a message to others, first compose the message. Send the message to:

   listname@lists.nasa.gov
   or
   listname@lists.hq.nasa.gov
   (In the case of Biomass and VI lists, recently added focus areas, no more lists.nasa.gov were available and we    had to use a HQ list)

To use the LPV Surface Radiation or VI lists, for example, you would send the message to:

   ceos-lpv-rad@lists.nasa.gov
   ceos-lpv-vi@lists.hq.nasa.gov

Note: You cannot send a message to a list that you are not subscribed to.  If you have multiple or updated email addresses, you must use the address that you subscribed with.   If you send a message to a list, and you do not receive the message yourself, then your message probably didn't go out. The general list large and is moderated.
