Preferred LIST NAME
The protocol for new lists is as follows: The "LIST NAME" is the first part of list address followed by "-L" which identifies to message recipients that the message is being sent through a list product (e.g.
). Additional examples:
It is best if you avoid the use of special characters altogether and stick exclusively to the letters A-Z, numbers 0-9, and the underscore and hyphen characters when naming your list. Note that the "_" (underscore) character may cause problems with some non-compliant receiving systems.
What is the purpose of your mailing list?
LISTSERV offers three types of lists. Please select one
Announcement (only owner posts)
Unmoderated (list admin & subscribers may post)
Moderated (editor reviews & posts messages)
If you selected an "announcement" list type, please select who may send to the list
Owners (Full administrators)
Editors (post only permissions)
For each list type, you have the option of selecting a preference for how users may join your list. Please select one item from the following list
Open (anyone may subscribe themselves)
By Owner (user requests, owner approves)
Closed (owner must add)
On-line archiving is available in LISTSERV. How frequently would you like your mailing list archived?
If you selected weekly, monthly, or yearly online archiving in question #7, please answer this question: What is your preference for subscriber access to archives?
Private (list members only)
Please indicate that you agree to abide by The University of Montana's Facilities Use Policy, which states that "The primary and priority use of University facilities (which includes this product) must be for University programs and activities" and also that usage will not benefit a private company. If your list does not fall within these guidelines, your application may be denied. Thank you
