Listserv Lists

Listserv is a collection of electronic discussion groups.


Listserv is a collection of electronic discussion groups, which are online forums where people discuss particular topics by receiving and posting messages using e-mail or the web. Listserv is also a convenient resource for sending announcements to a group by using a single e-mail address to reference the group. Electronic discussion groups are also called "distribution lists" or "lists."

System Maintenance

Listserv maintenance usually occurs on Monday mornings between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. During this time, Listserv management through the web interface will be unavailable and e-mail will be queued for delivery after the maintenance has been completed.
