<h2 id="overview">Overview</h2>

An <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_mailing_list">electronic
mailing list</a> is a way to send E-mail messages to several people using
a single, convenient, E-mail address. One can subscribe to a mailing list to
receive messages that the other people have sent. More information can be
found in <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_mailing_list">the
wikipedia page</a>.

Generally, your local Perl Mongers mailing list is considered a good place
to ask <b>any</b> perl questions including beginners one. Refer to the <a
href="http://www.pm.org/">Perl Mongers International homepage</a> for <a
href="http://www.pm.org/groups/">a list of them</a>. If you can't find one in
your area, then any PM list you join will be OK, as its members will accept you
there. Perl Mongers are united world-wide in their love for Perl and their
burning desire to get more people to know it and use it as well.

Otherwise, you may consider joining one of the mailing lists listed here,
which have a more international focus.
