Hi vol-users,

After 10 years, it is finally time to move the Volatility mailing lists to 
their new home at the Volatility Foundation, 
lists.volatilityfoundation.org. The official cutover is currently 
scheduled for Friday, 3/10/2017, at 1100 EST.  As a part of this process, 
we’re also performing a number of infrastructure and security upgrades. We 
anticipate this planned outage will take less than 12 hours.

With the dramatic increase in spam over the last 10 years, we have relied 
heavily on automated classification and manual review to make sure none of 
those messages burden your inbox. Unfortunately, there have been 
circumstances where some users’ emails have been inadvertently filtered. 
In order to reduce the likelihood of this happening in the future, the 
list will now be configured to only accept messages from email addresses 
that are registered as members of the list.

During the move, we will handle migrating existing users to the new 
systems.  Once the move is complete, we will send an email notification 
that will also serve as a test message on the new platform. If you do not 
receive the notification email, please send me a note and we will work on 
getting the issue resolved!  We appreciate your patience as we make this 

The new email address for the list will be: vol-users [at] lists [dot] 
volatilityfoundation [dot] org.

As a part of this transition, we have also decided to sunset the 
Volatility Developers mailing list (Vol-dev).  Currently, almost all of 
the development conversations and issues are handled within the Volatility 
project page on Github: 
https://github.com/volatilityfoundation/volatility. We will be maintaining 
the Vol-dev mailing list archives for historical purposes.

A special thanks to the Volexity team and our official training partner, 
memoryanalysis.net, for sponsoring the new infrastructure.
