Email Lists

When you get a NERSC user account, an email alias is created for you of the form

 username@nersc.gov

username@nersc.gov is an email alias that will forward mail to your delivery email address.

The NERSC Information Management (NIM) accounting interface will display your delivery address under the Contact Info tab (select My Contact Info from the My Stuff pull-down in the NIM main menu). Please keep your contact information in NIM up-to-date. Announcements of interest to NERSC's user community are made via email and saved in email archives. NERSC also supports a number of user email lists. NERSC email lists are managed by software called Mailman. A PDF introduction to Mailman can be found here. Further information on Mailman is available at the GNU/Mailman site

The major lists and their archives are described in the following table. Below the table are brief instructions about how to subscribe to these lists.
