For many years I have had a low-traffic mailing list at to provide users of my hobby software projects with updates about releases and other news.

Recently I noticed they now send out monthly reminders to everyone subscribing to any of their hosted lists, informing them which lists the user is subscribed to. I don't want this extra noise on my mailing list, so I am now looking for a new provider. Any suggestions or recommendations?


Both Google Groups and SourceForge mailing list seems to be viable options. My project is hosted on Sourceforge and I have a Google account, so which is better, and why?

I use GoogleGroups for the same reason. It is also handy if you already have a Google-account for any of their services.

If your software is open source, you get all of that (and more) on Sourceforge.
