I use Google Groups with my friends. If you have Google Account (e.g. you already use Gmail), you can use it. It's basicaly a simple mailing list with on-line searchable archive.

Create a group, from Group Settings -> Advanced - ensure This group is hosted on another mailing list host is checked and provide the email address of the mailing list.

In the 'Contacts' section you can define groups of contacts. Then in the 'To' box, the group name will come up as a suggestion when you start to type it just like for individuals.

I've found a way to do it with Mozilla Thunderbird. Go to Edit -> Preferences Tab Advanced Subtab General Button "Config Editor" Then for the setting "mail.compose.other.header", add "In-Reply-To". Then you can choose that header when you compose a message just the way you can choose CC/To and others.

Not automatically you can't. You can set up a very generic filter that should capture most of the legit mailing lists that you're subscribed to. Create a filter with the following: Has the words: unsubscribe Apply the label: lists This will deal with most of the mailing lists since they should all include instructions, if not a link itself, to ...

Use the "Report spam" button and won't worry. In time, Gmail figures out who is who.

I'm assuming what you want is for everyone on your support team to receive a copy of any email sent to the support email address? This can be achieved easily enough by setting up filters or forwarding addresses. Setting a forwarding address will send all emails received by the support email to the specified destination addresses. Filtering might be a ...

It appears that method 3 is a valid solution if you have some programming skills. I contacted the MailChimp and Mandrill support and they both confirmed that it's possible to send newsletters with Mandrill. MailChimp even allows you to use pre-defined templates for your Mandrill newsletter. The solution is to write a script (in a language like Ruby or ...

Create a gmail account, and a facebook account for it. Join the facebook group with it. Configure it to receive all email notifications from the facebook group. Create a gmail filter that forwards to the mailing list all emails from the facebook address that sends email notifications (e.g., notification+zj4zg6a944oc@facebookmail.com). If you use google ...

Check under the About link: The group settings specifies that only managers may post:

Yahoo! Groups can be used for small mailing lists/groups.

I strongly recommend Nabble. Its one of the best email groups I have ever seen. Major open source projects host their mailing lists on Nabble - e.g., R, OSGeo, PostgreSQL etc. It's Free, Simple and Embeddable. Also it provides web-interface to post questions to mailing lists provided you register on Nabble and subscribe to the mailing list. One can have ...

Google Groups is probably your best bet. These two links should be the most helpful for how it sounds like you'll be using it: Overview of the benefits of the Google Groups mailing list Create a group Based on your description, you'll probably want to set it up so that all members can post to the group.

Another option would be to create a filter where it checks for your email address in the "From:" and the mailing list's address in the "To:" and applies a different label. Matches: from:(slhk@example.com) to:(list@ffmpeg-user.com) Do this: Apply label "participating" It doesn't match exactly what you want to do, but the threads you're participating in ...

You could star the threads you're interested in and edit your filter with: list:(ffmpeg-user.ffmpeg.org) -is:starred If you use the advanced stars features, you can use: (has:yellow-star). More info on advanced stars filters on about.com.

Hundreds. Two of the biggest: Yahoo! Groups Google Groups But there are many, many more out there. A web search for "mailing list host" should provide other options.

I found a free service that looks reasonable for my needs listed in the question: http://www.mixxt.net/ It offers your own free social network including mail all members functionality, events, news, forum, wiki, blogs, pictures, private messaging and much more, in fact anything you could think of. The free version just displays some mixxt adverts and ...

Hmmm, that's a lot of functionality. I think Redmine does most of those things, but it's really a tool to help with managing software projects. I admit it's a crazy idea, and you still would have to set up a server, but you could make it work. Other than that, I don't see a lot of alternatives to Google's services.

The new service iftt.com allows me to do what I planned. It is very easy. I connected iftt.com with my gmail account and my wordpress account. When a mail comes in from the mailing list, it is automatically labeled by filters in gmail. iftt then checks for e-mails with this label and posts these mails in my wordpress blog. The wordpress blog is than ...

I believe that Yahoo Groups should do everything that you want. I have run private groups with multiple moderators, and users can add or remove themselves as they see fit.

I would take a look at MailChimp They offer a free service providing you don't exceed 2,000 subscribers or send more than 12,000 emails a month (which is unlikely given the scenario you have provided) They provide many options for you to manage your subscribers list including: Groups MailChimp allows you to segment based on interest, engagement ...

With the new Inbox I think you'll find that by-and-large mailing list posts will end up under the "Updates" tab. Mine certainly do (except, perhaps, for some that are using custom mailing list software that Google doesn't know about).

When viewing an email from the mailing list click on the arrow at the right upper corner of the email and choose "Filter messages like this". It will suggest you the rules for the filter you are going to create. You can change them. On the next step choose the options telling what to do. In your case check "Apply the label" and choose the label or create a ...

Kind of... There is the Show Indicator feature: Settings->General->Personal level indicators Show indicators - Display an arrow ( › ) by messages sent to my address (not a mailing list), and a double arrow ( » ) by messages sent only to me.

i'm following up from the last user's comment on a newsletter creator for Gmail called http://Flashissue.com (full disclosure - i'm the founder). we've had a HTML authoring tool for Gmail for a while - it lets you create a full styled newsletter and helps with finding and adding content to the newsletter rapidly. you then send out the newsletters through ...
