mailing lists for physics and astronomy

A mailing list is a discussion forum on a certain topic which is realized by resending the mail that a subscriber of the list has written to all other subscribers. Often this is realized by a software called majordomo or listserv located somewhere in the world on a server machine.

Be sure not to send mail dedicated to the subscribers to the listserver or majordomo software. And do not send list commands to the list itself as then all subscribers will read what you wanted to command. Some lists don't let you write to the subscribers like e.g. PhysNews. Please refer to the information send to you when you subscribe to a list.
