How can I create a mailing list for internal discussion in my firm? Like we have the SAS mailing list, can we have a SAS mailing list for my SAS discussions inside my firm itself?

Are you using Outlook? Which version? Do you want to Set Up a Distribution List? – Mitch Jun 25 '12 at 6:24
We have outlook 2010, and I was thinking a Distribution list might suffice. The issue is how to look into archived discussions? – AmulDotPdf Jun 25 '12 at 7:30
I recently got some info about public folders acting as internal bulletin boards. Anybody tried that? – AmulDotPdf Jun 25 '12 at 9:11

Run your own mailing list software - mailman is an option i see used a lot, and has web based archives but serverfault has other options you may want to look at.

Hey Thanks- but now I a looking at the problem from a different perspective- I was thinking of using the public folders as internal bulletin board. – AmulDotPdf Jun 25 '12 at 9:17
@AmulDotPdf - What do you mean using the public folders as a internal bulletin board? It sounds like this is a new question. – Ramhound Jun 25 '12 at 10:49
My intention was to have a common place where people can ask questions about say SAS/Excel within organization(and it could be a long term documentation). Hence I thought of the mailing list. Even better could be to use public folders in outlook as a bulletin board having threads- may be that could be a replacement for the mailing list/distribution list. The answers contributed here are sufficient though. – AmulDotPdf Jun 25 '12 at 12:43
In which case you may want to select the best (better?) answer as correct so the question won't be periodically bounced as not having a correct answe – Journeyman Geek Jun 25 '12 at 13:55

You could use a Google Groups (or other service that offers lists and groups - listserv) - you will get an address such as:

Invite all that you want to include in the group.

All correspondance will be with that address.

Hey thanks- but I was looking at some way in which I would not have to give data to some outside vendor. – AmulDotPdf Jun 25 '12 at 7:29
