How do I subscribe?

To subscribe, send a blank message to the special subscription address for the list you're interested in. Subscription addresses for each list are shown on the mailing lists page, e.g. on the top-level lists page you'll see subscribe and unsubscribe mailto links for each list.

Individual messages versus digest list

As an example, you want to subscribe to the NetBeans support list nbusers@netbeans.org. As shown on the top-level lists page, the subscription address is :

Alternatively, you can also subscribe to a digest-version of the same list: Instead of getting individual messages, you get a summary of all messages once a day. In order to do that visit all mailing lists overview page, find the list you are interested in, select digest from Delivery type combobox and click Update button.

The contents of the message you send to the subscription address is ignored, you can leave it blank. The only important thing is the address you send the message to, subject and the address your message comes from (i.e., your email address).


  • You know you have subscribed successfully if you receive a welcome message - remember to check your spam filters.
  • Check your subscription status here.
  • It is highly recommended that you keep the welcome message you receive from the mail server when you subscribe for future reference. It includes important subscription info which you might need later on.
