Mailman documentation
Some Mailman documentation is available on these wiki pages and some is available on the Mailman website. In general though, this wiki will have the most up-to-date documentation as it's much easier to edit these pages than push out new web page documentation.

Need quick help?

If you have a particular problem you need solving, the fastest way to find the answer is usually to search the wiki documentation. Try that first!
Note that you can search the wiki documentation using the search box on the upper right. You may also want to search the Mailman-users archives to see if other people have had similar questions. If you can't find your answer here, you can post your question to the Mailman-users list. Please join the list before posting.
