Old mailing list
Until the release of Dalton2013 November 2013, there were a mailing list available. The mailing list was meant as forum for exchange of experiences between users of the Dalton2011 programs. The mailing list is no longer supported, it has been replaced by the user forum.
A message archive of the postings to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list from before the creation of the forum is still available to subscribers. You must login on sympa.uio.no in order to read the archives.
