Brett Wuth maintains many electronic mailing lists to help make SARA communications work smoothly.

Viruses are automatically blocked. Spam (unsolicited commercial e-mail) is not blocked.

[edit] Adding New Lists

It's relatively easy for Brett Wuth to add new mailing lists using MailMan. It takes about an hour per list if you can provide all the needed information.


  • a description of the purpose of the list. The description will be published on the list's webpage.
  • a suggested address for the list in the form sara-xxxxxx@castrov.cuug.ab.ca
  • the e-mail address of someone who is willing to do adminstrative work (e.g. help new subscribers) The workload for most lists is usually less than 5 minutes a month.
  • the list of initial subscribers
  • whether or not new people should be allowed to subscribe on their own

[edit] saralberta.ca

These addresses don't end in @saralberta.ca.

saralberta.ca does have the capacity to create e-mail addresses that end in @saralberta.ca. This capacity has been used somewhat but a maintenance process has not been established.

It would be possible to set up addresses at @saralberta.ca to forward into these addresses so that either address would work the same.
