The Nonduality.com affiliated lists:

I AM Inspired in May, 1998, by Jerry Katz, 'I Am' was the first nonduality email list to stand independent of any teacher or teaching. It was created before any of the other lists on this page. The quality of posting is high and the volume very low. This list eventually became the Nonduality Salon, listed below.

All are welcome to join, whether they are new to this and want to learn, or have depth of understanding and realization, and wish to pass it on. Let us grow together." (owned and moderated by IAMOM).
