Categories uses Majordomo mailing list software.
To receive list email at the address
from which you are sending a subscription request,
simply write "subscribe" in the body of your message.
If you wish to have categories mailings go to a different address,
add that address to your message. For instance, you might put
the line "subscribe jdoe@my-uni.org"
in the mail message body.
To terminate your subscription, send the message "unsubscribe".
This will fail if your provider has changed the way your
address is shown in your mail.
To remove an address other than the one from which you are sending
the request, give that address in the request:
"unsubscribe jdoe@my-uni.org".
Please be aware that since the list is moderated, posting of submissions will normally take some time. If your submission has not been posted within 48 hours it may have been discarded for a reason below, or not received. After that time has elapsed you may contact the moderator.
List Policy
(Revised 2014-09-03):
The subject of this moderated mailing list is category theory.
Items on another subject may be posted if judged by the moderator
to be of interest to subscribers. Discussion
of such posts is excluded.
The list is to be used for concise discussion that is suitable for email distribution.
Posts are not transmitted if, in the moderator's judgement, they are unsuitable for distribution.
Postings to the categories list will be courteous and respectful.
Expression of disagreement must be polite. A submission judged by the moderator to be
offensive or defamatory will not be posted.
Submissions judged to be related such material
will not be posted.
The categories mailing list distributes only text messages.
Do not send attachments, messages containing html or excessively long postings (longer than about
10K).
The default setting for some email clients is to compose messages
containing html. This setting is easy to
change. Postings with attachments or with html
will be discarded.
Help with avoiding html is

The easiest to use archive is at
http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.science.mathematics.categories
and maintained by Gmane. Several viewing formats are available.
A subject-sorted list of postings June 1994-December 1999 is at
www.mta.ca/~cat-dist/catlist/
This was initiated by
Karel Stokkermans of the University of Linz
who maintained the list
from June 1994 to November 1999.
The full archives of postings on
categories
until 2009 (when Outlook made this impossible) are at
www.mta.ca/~cat-dist/archive/.
The postings are filed in yearly folders called 2006, 2005 etc.
Within those folders there are monthly files.
A list including email aliases for many subscribers to this list, among others, is the structures directory maintained by Vaughan Pratt.
The following have information on regular seminars in Category Theory.
The sites listed below have WWW pages or anonymous ftp directories with other documents of interest to subscribers to the categories list. Information about web sites with holdings of interest is solicited.
The links below are to appropriate directories at the ftp.dante.de CTAN (Common Tex Archive Network) site. If you are not in Europe, you may retrieve the files more quickly by connecting to another CTAN site closer to you.
