Email Discussion Groups, The Original Social Media

Greetings from Houston Texas, where I founded in 1995, to support groups communicating via a private mailing list. Back then only us techies were online, and spam had not even been invented yet!

Today, we have Facebook Groups, Linkedin Groups, Web Message Boards, Twitter, and many other tools to get your group connected. And I still believe an email discussion group is the best choice for most groups, because email is universal, easy to use, and we put the message into their inbox for immediate action.

While many of these other choices are free, they all have hidden agendas designed to make them money, at the expense of your group’s mission. At, you are paying for the support that allows you to run a hassle free online community with an absolute minimum of your time. We take responsibility for the success of your online group.

If you are migrating an online discussion group from another hosting service, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at all the features we have to make your job super easy. Most mailing list software was written 20 or 30 years ago, and has not changed since.

If you are starting a new online discussion group, you can have your list set up, and be sending messages to each other in a matter of minutes.

If you have questions, please call me at 713-520-4500. I know that every online discussion group is a bit different, and I’m happy to share my experience with you to see if a mailing list is the right tool for your group.
