LISTSERV is a campus wide e-mail list service available to students, faculty and staff. This service allows customers to create and maintain e-mail lists used to collaborate and share information with a large group of people. Subscribers can be from the University community or the general public. A web interface can be used to maintain lists, as well as personal preferences. Users can set personal preferences including start page, experience mode, navigation styles and more.

Some Mac Outlook users may report they can no longer post to listserv lists. A recent Mac Outlook update has changed how some profiles send your Office365 email. If you have messages sending from HawkID@uiowa.edu instead of your UI Email Alias (e.g., email@example.com) then you will need to update your profile.
