Mailing lists and forums
Search these mailing lists
The primary point of contact for GRASS GIS user help and development coordination is on the mailing lists. The answers to many questions you may have will probably already have been addressed and will be waiting for you in the mailing list archives.
Because the mailing lists are so critical to the project's success, and support comes entirely from time-strapped volunteers and colleagues, we request some mailing list etiquette to be followed.

GRASS Mailing list hints
The new mailing list system "mailman" is very strict with subscriptions to prevent spammers to flood the mailing lists. If you post to a GRASS list and receive a message similar to:
Subject: Your message to grass6 awaits moderator approval
The reason it is being held: Post by non-member to a members-only list
you are using two different senders. Such message won't come through to the list. Be sure that the "From:" setting is matching your subscription.
What about the "reply to" settings:
If you are annoyed that the "reply" to function of your mailtool send mails back to the original sender instead of the GRASS list, you will have to study the manual of your preferred mailing list software how to manage lists. You will search for a "list reply" function.
