When you want to subscribe to a mailing list, there is always a tip that suggests you search the FAQ or archives first to see if anyone has already posted the same topic that you meet. some mailing-list archive sites do not support searching function, while, some others do.

Here I will introduce some very famous archive sites to you; especially you are interested in some opensource projects such as Apache Software Foundation, BSD, JBoss...

Nabble:The first archive site is nabble. It is free, simple and embeddable. It uses the same structure to support different types of stuff, such as forum, blog, Photo Gallery, FAQ...


In nabble, you can start a free forum, start a blog, start a mailing-list, start a photo gallery and create a newspaper, which are only need simple steps to finish them.

Go and have a look @ http://n2.nabble.com/or http://www.nabble.com.

You can start a forum even without registering!
