How to Post, Subscribe, and Unsubscribe

While equipment status for all tools is posted on the Lab Management System (LMS) through Problems, Comments, or Shutdowns (PCS), discussion lists are the best way for users to communicate with each other and for staff to reach out to the user community. These discussion lists are managed using Mailman. Everyone who joins the lab is automatically subscribed to the SNF Labmembers list. If you would like to change your subscription options, see below.

Note that only list members are allowed to post to their lists and archives are visible only to list members. To post to a discussion list that you are a member of, send an email to:, where listname is the name of the discussion group you wish to post to, or use the appropriate link below.

Three ways to change subscription options :

To unsubscribe, enter your email in the field at the bottom of the page. In either case, you will receive an email asking you to confirm. Please note that you must confirm in order to change your subscription option.
