Directory

The directory makes available on the web the list of IN2P3 laboratories and staff. It may be found here: IN2P3 Directory.

ListServ

CC-IN2P3 offers the possibility to its users and the IN2P3 staff to manage mailing lists and newsgroups with ListServ.

To contact the admins of a mailing list ML-name use the email address: ML-name-request@listserv.in2p3.fr.

To know the users of a mailing list ML-name to which you have already subscribed, send the command review ML-name in the body of the mail (the subject is ignored) to listserv@inp3.fr.

The CC-IN2P3 users mailing list is USERS-CC-L.

Aliases @in2p3.fr

The aliases @in2p3.fr are not linked to the “computing” accounts: having a unix account username does not provide an alias username@in2p3.fr.

Only personnel assigned to an IN2P3 laboratory may have an @in2p3.fr alias. The alias points to the email address in the laboratory domain: name@in2p3.fr points to name@lab.in2p3.fr.

If a person is not IN2P3 presonnel, he does not have an @in2p3.fr alias. If a person leaves IN2P3, he will no longer have an @in2p3.fr alias.

Zimbra

CC-IN2P3 has been providing an electronic mail service to the IN2P3 staff since its move to Villeurbanne in 1986. This service has evolved over the years to offer in addition to the traditional mailbox, a set of so-called “collaborative” services.

The messaging service and these associated collaborative tools have been hosted on a platform “Zimbra Collaboration Server” (ZCS) since 2013.

This documentation describes the range of services offered, the tools and the settings to use them. It does not contain very sensitive information, we nevertheless wish that its diffusion remains limited to the community of users of CC-IN2P3 services. We ask you not to relay its contents outside your laboratory.

For more operational information, please refer to the dedicated FAQ.
