Mailing lists

The VirtualBox mailing lists are a good place for discussions related to VirtualBox and VirtualBox development. However, this only works if the VirtualBox community respects a couple of rules:

  1. Choose the right mailing list for your posting. Do not ask "How do I create a VM?" on the developer mailing list. (In fact, for general questions about using VirtualBox, we recommend the  Forums. as the first port of call.)
  1. Search the mailing list archive before posting to see if the issue you want to raise has already been discussed.

Currently, the following mailing lists exist:

  • VirtualBox announcements list

This is a low-volume list with VirtualBox-related announcements, such as notifications about new versions. It's always a good idea to subscribe to this list. Only the VirtualBox maintainers can post here.

List address:

  • VirtualBox user discussions list

This is the right place for end users to discuss VirtualBox, contribute suggestions, report problems (in particular if you are not sure whether or not to open a bug report), help others, etc. Please keep in mind that the list volume might become quite high.
