Tools of the Trade

There are many tools and websites you can use to create emailbased communities, aka mailing lists. Majordomo is the most widely used server-side software for maintaining mailing lists.

Major who?

According to David Barr, the author of the Majordomo FAQ, before it became synonymous with email lists, the definition of “Majordomo” was: a person who speaks, makes arrangements, or takes charge for another. From Latin “major domus”—“master of the house.”
