I think you do not need a gmail account for this, any email will work.

Usent newsgroups need an infrastructure---hardware. It costs money, or you need to convince your employer (if you're lucky to work at a university) that you need this extra hardware and IT support to run a server. As well, many ISPs simply block Usenet access nowadays. In 2001 Google has kindly stepped in with their free googlegroups, along with archiving Usenet groups. As more and more Usenet servers are going off the air, it's getting less and less meaningful to start new Usenet groups. > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet_newsgroup > > > > -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "FriCAS - computer algebra system" group.
