Mailing List


Do you frequently send emails to the same group of people within the campus community? If so, a mailing list management service can simplify the process. Academic and administrative workgroups, student clubs and organizations, project groups, and committees can all use a mailing list service to create and manage lists and to send email to list members.

The mailing list service uses Mailman, the GNU Mailing List Manager. The service provides built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, spam and content filtering, and digest delivery.
