Aktivix offers Email and Mailing Lists

AktiviX provides email boxes and Mailman Mailing lists for individuals and groups broadly aligned with "Who/what is AktiviX?".

Email addresses are username(at)aktivix.org, mailing lists are listname(at)lists.aktivix.org


Lists

Email lists for activists are be available from lists.aktivix.org

Application using the Friend of a Friend protocol. Request a list by mailing the aktivix-request@aktivix.org list and if you get a seconder and if there is no dissent it'll be created.

The AktiviX:AUP (acceptable use policy) still needs sorting out... and a list application form will be needed. This can all be documented on a AktiviX:Lists page...

Email

yourname @ aktivix.org email accounts are available, as with the lists, ask on the request list aktivix-request@aktivix.org or on the irc channel. See the AktiviX:AUP, AktiviX:Email and AktiviX:Help:Mail for more info...


Requesting Email and Mailing Lists

Send email clearly stating the name of the mailbox or list required to aktivix-request@lists.aktivix.org. Not all names are possible, so be prepared to change. It is nice of you state your request simply in the subject line, such as: Subject: request for email account, or Subject: request for list for XYZ group/purpose, because it makes it easier to separate it from sp@m.

Service requests are provided on a "Friend of a friend" basis. If you don't know anybody here join the mailing lists and irc channels and introduce yourself. See Main_Page#Aktivix_Community for more info

Email boxes and List admins are required to join an announce only list. This enables the workers to provide advance notice of service changes.

(TODO add a T&C paragraph that says something like .. " the aktivix community reserves the right to remove or otherwise alter the service provided to any member who acts in a way that is (or likely to ?) damage the the quality or level of service provided to the community as a whole. For example .. Sending unsolicited commercial email, using excessive amounts of disk, CPU, or bandwidth resources, behaving in ways that are unacceptable to the aktivix community..")


How quick is Aktivix to sort my account or list?

The aktivix services are provided by volunteers, so it is impossible to provide any guarantees around timescale of implementation or service levels. But, hey we are a friend of your friend, so we will do our best! :)
