What is a Mailing List?
Mailing lists originated on a network called BITNET. BITNET was created to connect universities in the United States, and now connects over one thousand institutions throughout the world.
Because mailing lists have their origins in the academic community, many mailing lists
address academic and research oriented topics. However, many mailing lists exist for
non-academic topics as well.
