2. I/O Related Email Lists

Here is a list of email reflectors for those who need to be deeply involved in the technical details of various interfaces and standards.

All of the majordomo and listserv reflectors are automatic. To subscribe or unsubscribe, send a message to the subscribe/unsubscribe address with a line in the message body (not the subject line) of the following format:

command reflector_name [your_email_address]

NOTE: At least for the reflectors at, your email address is optional. If you include it and it doesn't match the address in the email headers, there will be a delay while humans verify your email address.


subscribe ata
subscribe ssa
subscribe ssa
subscribe atapi
subscribe mmc
subscribe fibre-channel-ext
subscribe pcmcia-gen
unsubscribe ssa

The other reflectors are managed by humans who are a little less picky about the request format, but not quite as prompt. Please include your name, email address, phone, and fax numbers in the message body for the human-managed reflectors.
