Just remembered there is some Mailing List that spun off Skunkworks that by the Security Gurus. Will update if I can get it...

Just discovered one more. This must be the oldest one around started in 2001!

Almost dying though, this year...

So called "The official national Linux User Group in Kenya"

How about the very casual Electronics and ICT mailing list? The one at electronicsict@ymail.com ...

By a mailing list I was strictly refering to a list which you can subscribe to online and send/receive e-mail from/to everyone in the list. Mailing lists also have mail archives which can be accessed depending on the logging scheme.

You could create a mailing list using google and yahoo. There is open source software Mailman which is free software for managing electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists. Mailman supports built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, content filtering, digest delivery, spam filters, and more. See the features page for details.
