List servers maintain a list of e-mail addresses to which postings are automatically distributed. These lists function much like a bulletin board where persons interested in a particular topic post questions, comments, and replies to the postings of others. Newsgroups and the Microscopy Online Bulletin Board also perform a similar function.
To use a list server you must send an e-mail message containing a subscribe command to a special e-mail address. Once you are subscribed you will begin to receive a copy of all messages sent to the list. Messages are sent to the list by e-mailing to another special address. For specific details please see the information on the pages listed below.
The following are list servers of interest to the microscopist:
- Confocal Microscopy List (Confocal)
- Materials List (Materials-l)
- Microscopy List (Microscopy)
- Scanning Probe Microscope List (SPM)
Do you know of a list server that belongs on this list? If so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
