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.
On 9/29/2019 starting at 10pm, Listserv will be upgraded to a new version. The new version includes a brand new interface, seamless list archives, easy customization and improved reports. See New in LISTSERV 17.0 for more information. Also, on 10/20/19 from 10pm - 12pm on 10/21/19, Listserv will be down to migrate to a new server. Users will not be able to access their lists during this time. During these downtimes, messages sent during this time will be held, then sent when the system is back up.
