Mailing List

Interacting with the UMBC Linux User’s group using our mailing list requires that you subscribe first. There are two subscription options. By subscribing to the standard list, umbclinux, you will receive all LUG-related mail, including announcements, requests for help and suggestions, and community discussion. By subscribing to the announcements-only list, umbclinux-news, you will only receive urgent and important announcements regarding scheduled events, location changes, cancellations, etc.

Don’t subscribe to both lists. The standard list already receives all announcements. By selecting the announcement-only list you reduce incoming mail but will miss any member discussions taking place on the list.
