Fortunately, list administrators can disable the monthly password
reminder. Site admininistrators can disable them by default for all
lists by setting DEFAULT_SEND_REMINDERS = No in mm_cfg.py.
I agree that Mailman is the best open source mailing list software,
and I doubt if there is a better proprietary solution. I could apply
for a Mailman list from my university, but it would have to have the
uni-bielefeld.de domain in its address; no custom domain possible.
Has anybody asked JISC if they would host this list? They have
accepted international mailing lists in the past provided that some
British users are involved.
Please do not use Google Groups – Google already tracks 78% of all
website visits globally, so it's time to stop giving them data
