|Abstract:||The mailing list has been shown during the last decade to be efficient support tool for professional communication. In fact, it is a first step toward virtual communities. This article studies the evolution of a particular case, IweTel, and its use by its subscribers, from the analysis of the content of messages that were sent between 1998 and 2000. The conclusions of the study show that this list is basically used for professional communication and the exchange of information, although it suffers from a marked lack of active involvement by its subscribers. On the other hand, although there have been notable improvements resulting from moderation, there is a persistent absence of scientific or academic contents in the debates that take place.|
