No management effort. Messages can be kept indefinitely. Only one copy of each message. Can read newsgroup messages when you wish. Subscription to a newsgroup is easy Not Private Less urgent – read news less often than E-mail New software might need to be learned EMAIL LIST Can be set up to be private Addresses on a list are not restricted to Oxford Easier to send urgent messages Existing, familiar mail software can be used. High-volume of email can prove intrusive. The method of subscribing to an email distribution list can be tricky 'list maintainer' required Each message replicated many times - inefficient. Storage at the discretion of each member of the list. Netiquette:  Netiquette Use the Subject: field Don’t auto-reply to mailing lists! (Herald does this automatically) Don’t have an argument on a mailing list Write carefully if you feel strongly about something. Use emoticons to convey sense of what you’re saying Keep messages brief Don’t flame, spam or troll Don’t quote others without acknowledgement Be Legal, Decent, Honest andamp; Truthful http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/email/netiquette/ Conclusions:  Conclusions Maillist and News both have their uses Never a definitive correct solution Use requires care and planning Both can save time, paper and frustration High volume E-mail lists sometimes move to newsgroups Enjoy!
