Legacy space is the IPv4 address space that was distributed by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority’s (IANA) central registry prior to the formation of the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) system.

Announcements e-mail

Please include e-mail addresses that wish to receive announcements from the RIPE NCC. Please make sure announcements from the RIPE NCC will be forwarded to the contacts of the registry. It is mandatory to have at least one e-mail address per LIR. Do not subscribe an automated ticketing system email address to the mailing lists. This results in unwanted emails that disrupt discussion on the mailing lists.

Your LIR must have a membership status FULL to be subscribed to this list. Members who have a status other than FULL will not be able to subcribe, even though their e-mail appears in this box. Members whose status alters while they are subscribed will be automatically unsubscribed from the membership discussion list. Do not subscribe an automated ticketing system email address to the mailing lists. This results in unwanted emails that disrupt discussion on the mailing lists.
