Email distribution lists (LISTSERV) streamline communication to subscribers by allowing messages to be sent to an entire group at once using only the email address of the list. Mason provides a LISTSERV application for faculty, staff, and university organizations and departments.
Each list must have a primary owner but may have additional owners as well.
- Send emails to large group of people without having to type individual emails.
- Send replies via a LISTSERV sends the response to the entire listserv.
- Manage users via a LISTSERV management website.
This service is available 24/7, excluding planned outages, normal maintenance windows, and unavoidable events. Maintenance windows are Sundays from 7 to 11 a.m. but may be extended to 2 p.m., if needed. If maintenance is required outside of these hours, it will be announced on the Alerts & Bulletins page.
Owners of LISTSERV lists assume all responsibility for usage of their lists, including any password resets and abuse, and must adhere to University Policy Number 1301: Responsible Use of Computing.
