Exim Mailing Lists

There are several mailing lists related to Exim. We suggest everyone subscribes the the exim-announce list to obtain information on updates and other issues that affect all exim users. You may also wish to join one or more of the other lists.

To make the lists useful for everyone and to get the best use of them please read the notes on Mailing List Etiquette before posting.

Some stats on the lists are being collected at EximMailingListStats

exim-announce@exim.org

This is a very low traffic announcements only list. We suggest everyone subscribes to this list. The list info page is at http://lists.exim.org/mailman/listinfo/exim-announce and searchable archives are at:

If you have an exim relevant announcement you may post to this list, but the post will be moderated, and may be rejected. Please remember the moderators do not work on this 24/7 so you may have to wait for a moderation decision - post in good time for time critical posts.

exim-users@exim.org

This is a high traffic general list for all levels of user, with both a normal and digest form of the list available. The list info page is at http://lists.exim.org/mailman/listinfo/exim-users and searchable archives are at:

The list is open for posting from members. Non members postings or spammy postings are moderated. Members that are not following Mailing List Etiquette may be moderated for a while.

If you have questions about exim or things you want to do with or to exim this is where you should be posting. If you are using Exim version 3 then take note of Exim3Status. If you are using a debian distribution you may find that the specific debian mailing lists are better suited - see DebianExim4.

Please look at the information on Mailing List Etiquette before posting.

exim-users-de@exim.org

This is a German language version of the exim-users list. The archives are at http://lists.exim.org/lurker/list/exim-users-de.de.html

Russian exim-users

This is a Russian language version of the exim-users list. The list info page is at http://mailground.net/mailman/listinfo/exim-users and other archives are at:

exim-dev@exim.org

This is a (currently) low traffic general list about future development of exim, with both a normal and digest form of the list available. The list info page is at http://lists.exim.org/mailman/listinfo/exim-dev and searchable archives are at:

The list is currently concentrating on how to manage the exim development process as it transitions to a open development project rather than a single developer project. It is not a newbie free questions list, or a place to ask questions without having so much traffic. Questions regarding Exim 3 should not be put to this list.

Please look at the information on Mailing List Etiquette before posting.

exim-cvs@exim.org

CVS checkins list, with both a normal and digest form of the list available. The list info page is at http://lists.exim.org/mailman/listinfo/exim-cvs and searchable archives are at http://lists.exim.org/lurker/list/exim-cvs.en.html

There are no posts to this list other than the cvs commit messages - discussion should take place on exim-dev

exim-maintainers@exim.org

This is a closed (invitation only) list for exim maintainers, and those that package exim for distribution only. It is very low volume.
