GNU Mailman Project
GNU Mailman is a mailing list manager popular in open source projects.
What is GNU Mailman?
Mailman is free software for managing electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists. Mailman is integrated with the web, making it easy for users to manage their accounts and for list owners to administer their lists. Mailman supports built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, content filtering, digest delivery, spam filters, and more. You probably use it: Mailman is used to manage many project mailing lists from 3-person teams to some of the biggest corporate support operations.
How is the code organized?
In Mailman 3, we've divided up the code into a number of sub-projects. We refer to the whole package as "Mailman Suite" and there's a few really important pieces you should know:
- Mailman Core - This is the part that actually sends and receives mail and handles subscriber and list information.
- Postorius - A web interface for managing Mailman lists (e.g. subscribing, changing preferences)
- Hyperkitty - A web interface to access GNU Mailman v3 archives.
There's also a number of smaller projects that provide the glue to make these pieces work well together, or allow them to be used separately.
Who are we?
Mailman is a community of developers and users who support people who support people! We're proud to be part of the infrastructure of the Internet.
