KDE Mailing Lists
The KDE mailing lists are one of the main communication channels in the KDE Community. This is a list of general mailing lists to give a quick overview. For application specific lists, please see the application's page. For a complete overview, see the full list of all mailing lists.
General user lists

with questions strictly about KDE applications

To Subscribe: Either use the above links and use the mailman interface, or send a mail to email@example.com with subscribe your-email-address in the subject of the message. Please write your real email address instead of the plain "your-email-address" words, and the name of the list instead of the "list-name" words. Leave the body of the message empty. Do not include a signature or other stuff which might confuse the mail server which processes your request.
To Unsubscribe: Either use the above links and use the mailman interface, or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with unsubscribe your-email-address in the subject of the message. Please replace "your-email-address" with the email address you did use for the subscription, and "list-name" with the name of the list you subscribed to. Leave the body of the message empty. Do not include a signature or other stuff which might confuse the mail server which processes your request.
Please do not use HTML to send your request because it makes it difficult for our mail server to process your request. If the subscription address is identical to the address you are posting from you may omit the address in the subject line.
Contact addresses for developers can be found in the documentation of their individual applications.
Since mailing lists send message to a large group of people, you will want to observe a special ettiquite when sending messages. Basic help about this is at the Mailing List Etiquette FAQ. Also see How To Ask Questions The Smart Way.
