This list was originally created to provide pointers to lists for people who were interested in the practical, as opposed to the academic, aspects of the occult. Since ARCANA's termination in July 1998, this list has been maintained for people who are interested in finding mailing lists which address various areas of occult interests.
For many of these topics, there are a multitude of mailing lists, some with a very specialized focus. Additionally, the advent of web-based mailing list services has seen a rapid increase in the number of mailing lists out there. In the interest of keeping this index manageable and useful, I've listed the more general mailing lists when possible.
If you maintain a mailing list which you would liks to see listed here, please send a note to email@example.com with the list name, a description, and subscription information.
To join a list that is administered by LISTSERV, majordomo, listproc or mailserv, simply send a message to the mailing list manager's address, with the words "subscribe <listname>" in the body of the message. For example, to join the alexandria mailing list, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words "subscribe alexandria" in the message body.
Mailing lists which are administered by other flavors of mailing list managers will have specific instructions listed.
