Lists that are restricted:

VNNGO
This is a RESTRICTED list for Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) working on helping Viet Nam. If you wish to join, send email to
Postmaster@Saigon.COM with information about yourself and your NGO. The VNNGO network is a Vietnamese-American Education Foundation (VAEF) sponsored project.

An Internet gateway, WAN, and email network in Viet Nam is being worked on. Serious offers of help are welcome.

Lists publically available for everyone to join:

VNFORUM
Vietnam discussions. It is moderated. To join, send email to vnforum-request@saigon.com.
VN-TECH
This is for technical discussions on such areas as software programming, hardware designs, technical supports (hw/sw). Oriented toward the Vietnamese engineers. Discussions are in both English and Vietnamese.
VN-ATNP
This is A(n Tu.c No'i Phe't. A mailing list for people to talk about whatever "No'i Phe't". Let me warn you that the conversation can get rather racy, risque' at times. Join it at your own discretion. The only restriction I place on the list is no flame wars, no name callings, and so on.
VN-SINGLES
This is a list for the VNese singles, professionals and students. (There are also some married people in it.) The focus is on socializing with other VNese singles and sharing experiences. It is very friendly and enjoyable... :-)
