LAMMPS mail list
The LAMMPS mail list is hosted at
SourceForge. The mail list began in 2005,
and now includes tens of thousands of messages in thousands of
threads. LAMMPS developers try to respond to posted questions in a
timely manner, but no guarantees.
Ways to use the LAMMPS mail list
Anyone can post messages to the list or browse/search previous
questions/answers in the archives. You can search the archives from
this page (see below) or on SourceForge. If you
want to subscribe and answer questions yourself, that would be great!
- Anyone can view previously posted messages by browsing/searching the
archives on the LAMMPS WWW site or the
archives on SourceForge.
- Anyone can post a message or question to the list by sending email to
lammps-users at lists.sourceforge.net. Don't include big files. If you
are a subscriber, your message will appear immediately. If you are
not a subscriber, your message will be moderated, which typically
takes a day before your message appears on the list. When someone
replies you will receive that reply as a personal email, and the reply
will appear on the list in the new thread your message started.
Posting a message sends email to subscribers immediately, but it can
take a few hours for postings and replies to show up in the
- To subscribe to the mail list, visit this
page. If you subscribe
to the list you receive emails when people post to the list and can
reply with a response. After you subscribe, you will be sent a
confirmation email. When you reply, your subscription is enabled.
You can changes settings for your subscription or unsubscribe from the
same page. By default
you get an email each time someone posts to the list; you can receive
a daily digest instead. When you receive an email, you can reply only
to the sender of the posting, or you can also CC your response to
lammps-users at lists.sourceforge.net (e.g. reply-all) and your response
will be archived on the list in the same thread.
- There is no way to reply to a posting (via the mail list) unless you
are a subscriber.
Search the LAMMPS mail list archives
The mail list postings can be searched in various ways:
- Use this customized Google search box to search the content of mail
messages archived on the LAMMPS WWW
- Search on just the subject lines of all mail messages archived on the
LAMMPS WWW site, by using your browser search
key (e.g. Ctrl-F) while viewing that page.
- Search the archives on SourceForge. The "search" option
is under the "Mailing Lists" tab, immediately above the calendar and
will search both the subject lines and content of the messages. Do
NOT use the search box at the top right corner of the page; this
searches the entire SourceForge site, not the LAMMPS mail list.
- Do a normal Google search in your browser. Note that all mail list
postings have "lammps-users" in the subject line. For example, a
Google search for "lammps-users fix langevin" (without the quotes),
will give hits on LAMMPS mail list messages.
