GroupServer

GroupServer is an open-source collaboration server, licenced under the GPL. Like Yahoo! Groups and Google Groups, it allows people to hold many-to-many and one-to-many conversations using email and the web.

The email interface to GroupServer is like a mailing list: people send a message to the email address of the group, and the message is relayed to all group members who want to receive it. The web interface of GroupServer provides a secure and personalised interface like an online message board with member directories, postings by topic, Web Feeds, document sharing, advanced searching, and Web-based forum management and many other features.

GroupServer is designed, developed and sponsored by OnlineGroups.Net, who provide hosting, consulting and support for GroupServer installations.

Screenshots

This demo site is at http://demosite.onlinegroups.net

Users can participate in GroupServer forums using email, the web, or both.

Topics
