Way back in mid-2005, I setup an Enron Email Mailing List to encourage people to share data, experience, questions and knowledge about working with the Enron corpus. While the list has been quite low-traffic, a significant number of email researchers subscribed, and I like to think that it’s been of at least some use to people working with the Enron data.
Unfortunately, if you have tried to post (or if new people tried to subscribe) to the list in the past few months, things wouldn’t have worked out.
Due to some technical and people issues (that I have been slow to notice and even slower to address – my apologies for this!) the list disappeared off the face of the internet sometime around September last year. Unfortunately, the mailing list archives were lost in this process, and I haven’t been able to recover them, although I do have a personal archive of all the mailing list messages, if anyone is in desperate need of a copy.
The good news is that I have reconstructed the membership list, based on my personal archives of the list. So the list is now functioning again. If you’re not already a subscriber, and you’d like to join, just head on over to the Enron Email Mailing List page.
If any of you have Enron specific, or more general email research questions or topics you’d like to discuss, I’d encourage you to post them to the list.
Finally, it’s probably a good time to remind anyone interested in email research about the upcoming AAAI Enhanced Messaging Workshop. You can find out all the details, including the important dates, at http://enhancedmessagingworkshop.googlepages.com.
