Prussia.Net will cease operating the Mailman mailing list software on 30 September 2011 at 5.00pm Sydney time. If you’re currently using Mailman, we’ll email you early next week to explain the migration plan.

Mailman is getting rather long in the tooth. It’s hard to use, and because it was designed for email-based discussion forums it has never worked very well for email marketing.

Besides, I’d rather not have bulk email sent from our servers, even if it’s not spam. Once Mailman is decommissioned we’ll tighten our terms and conditions regarding bulk email.

I strongly recommend that people use a modern email marketing system. We use Campaign Monitor and recommend it highly.
