Postal History and Stamps in "Space":

Green Bullet dk.fritid.filateli (The Danish News Group on Philately)
Green Bullet rec.collecting.stamps.discuss
Green Bullet rec.collecting.stamps.marketplace

The STAMPS List
On the Internet there is a STAMPS List, and if you want to join the List, you should send a mail to Stamps-Listserver (was: listserv@lists.psu.edu) with the only command: subscribe stamps name, where name is your name. You will then get information about the List and how to send information to the List.

Here are Four splendid Sites!
Here you can find the absolutely most interesting Stamp Sites on WWW. (You can find me there too ;-)

Linn's StampSites One of the best Stamp Sites of the world!
    All pages indexed in StampSites are about stamp collecting and philately,
    so you won't get pages about rubber stamps, stamped metal, or (if it exists) the
    heavy rock band "Paul Stampson & the Burpseals"! (1999.04.18)
Joseph Luft's Famous Site
Francis Chan's Stamp Resources (2002.03.23)
Philatelic.Com (Gregory K. Deeter)
Malte Aronsson's Stamp Philatelic Links (was: http://www.geocities.com/RodeoDrive/6534/) (1998.09.07)

STAMPS FAQ

Stamps-FAQ-Norway (was: http://www.idi.ntnu.no/~bjornmu/rcsfaq/title.html), (Bjørn Munch)

The Wreck & Crash Mail Society
was formed in the latter part of 1994, and is devoted to the collecting and study of all aspects of delayed and/or damaged mail and interrupted mail services. Currently the Society is composed of four study groups, namely: the Air Crash Study Group, The Railroad Wreck Study Group, the Ship Wreck Study Group, and the Suspended Mail/Conflicts Study Group. The Society publishes a quarterly journal "La Catastrophe", which contains articles on all aspects of wreck and crash mail, as well as news on new cover discoveries, auction realizations on wreck and crash mail, and questions from members who are seeking information on their crash and wreck covers and the stories behind them:
