<h1>Mailing Lists</h1>
<p>
There are many PHP-related mailing lists available on our server.
Most of them are archived, and all of them are available as newsgroups
on our <a href="news://news.php.net">news server</a>. You can search
some mailing lists right from this website from <a href="/search.php">the
search page</a> or by using the search input box selecting the
appropriate option on the top-right of every page.
</p>
<p>
There is an experimental web interface for the news server at
<a href="http://news.php.net/">http://news.php.net/</a>, and
there are also other archives provided by
<a href="http://marc.info/">Marc</a>.
</p>
<h2>Twitter</h2>
<p>
The PHP team maintains an official PHP.net account on twitter,
<a href="https://twitter.com/official_php">@official_php</a>, for those
interested in following news and other announcements from the PHP project.
</p>
<h2>Mailing List Posting guidelines</h2>
<p>
When posting to mailing lists or newsgroups, please keep the following in mind:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
Use a valid email address. Every new poster's email address
is checked for validity through confirmation.
</li>
<li>
Send plain ASCII messages, no HTML-formatted emails please.
</li>
<li>
Turn on word wrapping so your entire message doesn't show up on
a single line.
</li>
<li>
Be sure to click <strong>Reply-All</strong> to reply to list. Clicking
<strong>Reply</strong> will email the author of the message privately.
</li>
<li>
No attachments please, just post a URL if you want someone to
look at something.
</li>
<li>
Don't GPG/PGP sign your messages. If you want people to be able
to send you encrypted email, stick your key-locator in your signature
</li>
<li>
Don't hijack other peoples' threads. To post on a new topic, start
a new message, don't reply and just change the subject.
</li>
<li>
Check the archives before posting a question, chances are it has
already been asked and answered a few times.
</li>
<li>
When asking a question, don't just tell us, &quot;it doesn't work&quot;.
Tell us what you are trying to accomplish, a <strong>short</strong> code
snippet showing how you tried to solve it, what you expected to get and
what you got instead.
</li>
</ul>
<p>
And make sure you have read our
<a href="//git.php.net/?p=php-src.git;a=blob_plain;f=README.MAILINGLIST_RULES;hb=HEAD">Mailinglist Rules</a>.
</p>

You will be sent a confirmation mail at the address you wish to
be subscribed or unsubscribed, and only added to the list after
following the directions in that mail.

<strong>Warning:</strong> The PHP users mailing list gets close to 1500-2000
messages per month currently. Do the math. That translates to about 60
messages per day. If your mailbox can't handle this sort of traffic you
might want to consider subscribing to the digest list instead (two messages
per day), using the news server, or reading the mailing list using the
archives.
</p>
<h2>Mailing list options</h2>
<p>
All of the mailing lists hosted at <a
href="http://lists.php.net/">lists.php.net</a> are managed using the <a
href="http://untroubled.org/ezmlm/">ezmlm-idx</a> mailing list software.
There are a variety of commands you can use to modify your subscription.
Either send a message to <code>php-whatever-help@lists.php.net</code> (as in,
<code>php-general-help@lists.php.net</code>) or you can view the commands for
ezmlm <a href="http://untroubled.org/ezmlm/ezman/ezman1.html">here.</a>
