The Ufomind server is now the host of the UFO UpDates Mailing List Archive.
UFO UpDates is the most respected of the moderated mailing lists on UFOs,
managed by Errol Bruce-Knapp in Toronto. Kevin Randle, Stanton Friedman,
Philip Mantle and dozens of other prominent UFO researchers post there
regularly. The only problem with the list has been its relatively high
email load -- 20 to 40 messages per day -- which can be a burden to deal
with by email. We have addressed this problem by creating an instant
archive on the web. Just check in at the address above every 2-3 days, and
you'll have access to all the messages. Each message is also linkable from
other pages at a stable URL.

The Area 51 Mailing List, which is just coming back on-line after the
holidays, is expected to complement the UFO UpDates list, not overlap it.
While UFO UpDates covers broad UFO issues, the Area 51 list covers only
Area 51, regional issues (NV, CA deserts, AZ, UT), and specific
government/military organizations. The web storage format for the Area 51
list is now the same as the UFO UpDates list: Messages appear immediately
on the web as soon as they are received, so you don't have to wait for the
digest. The latest messages (last 6 days for Area 51 and last 3 days for
UFO UpDates) appear on the main page for each of these archives, so these
are the only pages you need to link to. In addition, the latest messages
for the Area 51 list also appear in the current Ufomind What's New page.

We expect that most people with web access will prefer to get the messages
from their rather than subscribing to the mailing lists directly.  (To
unsubscribe from the Area 51 list, send a message with the word
"unsubscribe" in the body of the message to area51-request@lists.best.com.)
