Several of following documentation are obsoleted. See Sympa documentation site to find recent documentation.


Sympa documentation, including the administrator's manual, is now managed using a wiki (dokuwiki). This site provides many other documentations including “internals” for developpers.

The administrator's manual and most of the documentation are available in English only (no French version). Many French-speaking people are surprised at this because the authors are French but it is really difficult to maintain a documentation even in a single language.

Versions prior to 5.3 included latex documentation. We now moved to a wiki because we want to encourage contributions to the documentation, which will be far easier with a wiki.

Sympa Administration manual: this is the main documentation for installation, setup and customization of a Sympa mailing list server.

For users, the main are included into Sympa web interface (since version 5.2.4 and later).
