What is a mailing list:
A mailing list is a way of sharing your knowledge, queries, ideas etc. relating to certain basic concept/topic. In a mailing list one sends once post to the mail-list address. That particular is then sent to all the members/subscribers of the mailing list. People who know about that particular topic again respond/reply to the query, but rather than sending the reply directly to you, they will also reply to the mailing lists address. This not only benefits the one who had generated the query, but also others on the list facing similar situations. You will come to know more what happens on a mailing list when you join it.
Beginners to Linux can get help from Experts on how to use linux, how to run commands using Shell in terminal, Installing and Configuring all those stuffs in Linux on your Systems.
We all are here to help you and We keep in touch via the mailing list. By Joining the mailing list, if you have any doubt or any information to share with those who are already in the mailing list you can just send an email to ”firstname.lastname@example.org“.
